Most of us love MMA, and after Saturday’s UFC (139) Shogun vs Henderson, I can really say that. However there are some among us who find such extreme violence to be disturbing and foolish. (Mom, I am talking to you), and for the sake of not fighting over Thanksgiving, I can see some of their points. However there is another group of people who feel that MMA isn’t extreme enough. With all the points for take downs, breaks between rounds, wearing gloves, and referee stoppages, perhaps we need something more “Extreme!” You might remember my post of the X-Arm competion? Well fighters of this ilk have done it again with the advent of Shock Fighting.
Here’s what you do, you attach a taser to each glove, and alakazam, the people who support the ban of MMA in New York suddenly sound much more sane. In mere MMA we only had to worry about broken bones, chokes, joint breakage, and concussions. Now we get to worry about several thousand volts of electricity! Is he tapping or just twitching? Who knows. Thanks to George for the tip. Hope you enjoyed.
