ok so was bored last and starting browsing through the cable till I came across this show called X-arm. It was created by the Art Davie co-creator of the first UFCs alongside with Rorian. So I figured "eh why not"....holy **** was I wrong. It was total crap, yet utterly hilarious at the same time. Here is a promo vid of it, and what are your thoughts on it.

Link? I couldn't find anything else under "x-arm"

Looks like a stupid show and reminds me of the knife fight from beat it. I am now so going to armbar someone next time I get into an arm wrestling match.

Why does every combat sport have to be accompanied by angry white boy music? Isn't it already "hardcore" enough that people are beating the **** out of each other?

No no no, this is a great idea. With a few other brilliant ideas we can cover all possible self-defense scenarios in an alive environment:

- fighting at a concert without spilling your beer

- fighting while changing a tire in an empty parking lot

- fighting while in the express lane at the grocery store

...Etc.

WRONG!!!! There is no CACC so there is NO WAY this is the future

(edit: I was wrong, they are capturing limbs like any good hooker would do, so this very well may be the future)

If the show is trying to depict the future, the fighters should have way cooler uniforms than the ones they have now; like Mad Max/Gwar-style. I would probably watch the show then.

Looks like the guys who training for MMA but knew they wouldn't pass a drug test.

Hey you can't bash Aikidoka here! They'd DOMINATE this sport! They'd simply use their Ki to make their arms unbendable, and then throw the person with it because they are perfectly centered, and the person would magically flip over while the aikidoka held their arm causing the arm to tear off and the person to hit the ground with massive force. Tis t3h d34dly I TELLS YOU!
