Personally I would never fight my team mates unless it was for a title because let's face it you train with them regulary and they know what you do and you know what they do

Football players aren't trying to knock each other unconscious. While it does happen, same with hockey and other sports, that isn't the intent of the sport.

If those two players were friends off the field then there is no way he would go helmet on helmet like that.

If you step on a football field there is nowhere near the risk of brain trauma as there is in mma, there is no comparison.

They are brothers for all intents and purposes. They had nobody and were joined under the same roof. The point is he said it would be a privelege/honour. He doesn't want to fight him to settle a score, he still loves his brother, he respects him as a martial artist.

The amount of respect for another and/or amount of tricks/specialties known can cause trepidation.
Honestly, that's their problem. Saying, 'I don't want to do something because I don't like it' doesn't mean its a good reason. I'm not saying they 'should' fight, again I think its silly. If you really value those close to you as fighters the best way to honour them is to teach them/learn from them ie. fight them.

Also, so what if they know all you're 'tricks'? You know theirs. Doesn't it make for a unique and challenging fight? It's an opportunity to grow past you're old reliances, make new tricks, anticipate his knowledge. After you fight them then you have twice a many tricks to use against unfamiliar opponents. You have grown your game.

How bout they don't rely on their old camp? How bout they go back into the world and see who has the best learning strategy, who picks the best teachers?

It would be totally fair because both fighter's are in the same position.

In my opinion, if gyms consider themselves to be professional, or have a martial arts ethic, they should be mature enough and intelligent enough to not only resolve an internal fight situation but to ACTUALLY EMBRACE IT, as an opportunity to grow their fighters and showcase their camps quality and professionalism.

All this tiptoeing around, avoiding eye contact, is essentially aversive behavior, its immature, its emotional, 'I won't' vs 'I will', it is unbecoming of a martial artist.

I don't have a friend I would not fight for $5000. Seriously I am not sure if that means I don't have any real good freinds or what but I would fight any of them for that kind of money and I am convinced they would do the same.
