    Yes. And there is a doctor ringside.

    On a side note, the host website Toughsportslive.com is raising an interesting law suit about the illegality of cockfighting. Among other things it states that the law is vague and unconstitutional. It also cites the bullfighting on television. There is a pdf of the law suit on wikipedia, under the entry for toughsportslive.com, if anyone is interested.

    I don't have anything against cockfighting. It's totally cool with people to cut the beaks off of chickens and make their lives miserable when it's for food. But as soon as animals suffer as part of an entertainment venue people get their panties in a knot. It's quite possible that the chickens we breed for food have much worse lives than the cocks that are bred to fight.

    Agreed, it's like all those people who call hog hunting a barbaric sport while chowing down on their Sausage McBiscuits. HYPOCRITE!
    Is the Salmon Rodeo anything like Hunting the One Eyed Trouser Trout?

    The Salmon Fucking Rodeo would be a competition to see who could **** a live salmon to death without fracturing their penis.

    To get this thread back on track, so far I see only Brazilian fighters in this organization. Would they ever be interested in bringing in talent from other countries?

    I don't see anything about that on the site. But I'm sure that if someone with a relatively established fight career came over they wouldn't turn them down. Allow me to clarify that I had nothing to base that guess on.

    It pays nothing and most sane people are not going to fly to Brazil to fight some possibly HIV+ guy.

    Well... I dont think you can say that mixed martial arts is the "functional" mans sport anyway. I've seen a few matches. Honestly, only diffrence between this and the UFC/Pride is that theres small joint manipulation (wrist, finger) and you can attack someones throat here. Aside from that, its like watching UFC with shots to the back of the head. Same amount of skill, same amount of determination. I have alot of respect for the guys in this league. I think they should make a seperate Vale Tudo league and televise these events.

    Btw, if Im ever good enough I would take my chances in Brazil for an opportunity to fight one of these guys.

    Why not? They did it in the IVC days.

    And according to the Rioheroes website, they have mandatory pre-fight blood tests.

    Of course I can't argue about the pay... Even if they could match what the UFC would pay fighters, the winner still has to go through three fights in one sitting to get the check. Although the pay is probably comparable to the early UFCs.

    It's interesting to watch what happens without gloves. In several fights someone will have rear mount and will start throwing big punches at the back of their opponent's head only to back off a little and go for some slaps and elbows. I imagine that kills your knuckles.
