There would be an absoulte shit storm of bad press and calls for it to be banned with an over emphasis on the words 'human cock fighting' being used.
Just look at all the negativity a month or so back when it was reported that two kids (8 year olds?) where fighting (with head gear and it was only a grappling match). Kids have amateur bouts all the time in boxing but nothing is said/no one cares.
There are many deaths in boxing every year that only recieve minor coverage but you can bet your ass as soon as there is a death (hopefully never) in one of the bigger evens in MMA we wont hear the end of it.
Yeah i remember that kid grappling match. That stuff was so ridiculous you cant help but put your palm to your face. One of my biggest pet peeves is this over sensitive society we have now a days. They can find a way to be upset about anything even though there is no reasonable or logical reason to be upset or outraged.
TBH iv seen and done crazier/violant stuff while i was in 3rd,4th grade then those kids did. Im sure crazier stuff happens every day. Why is it that a mild basically playing wrestling match get so much heat just because it is involved with MMA. There is just no logical thought that could justify that type of thinking.
