I saw this guy on the news tonight, claiming on all possible tones, that ultimate fighting should be permitted in Toronto and in Ontario in general. Well let me disagree on the one point he was trying so hard to defend: Is Ultimate fighting barbarian?
The argument he was making was that no death has ever been recorded in this sport, yes I do call it a sport 'cause it can be, how lame an argument is that? It implies that death could be possible. All of this with mixed images of fights with blood splatters all over the place.
If you want your sport to be accepted you have to recognize that it's totally barbarian, and that's what our world is ready to pay for. I watch it sometimes and as much as I can appreciate the training level, technique and all, it is still barbarian to me. Boxing is already on the edge, ultimate fighting is a warrior's dream that only relates to the past.
Rock on sports of the future: Skateboarding, yes you can kill yourself on the ramp but you're not agressing any one else, it's your fight, your fear, and it's much more coureagous. KICK VOLLEY is the symbolization of a martial art fight with no contact allowed, a fight being a communication on a primitive level, the symbolisation of the fight in another level towards balance, equity, communication and control over human problems. Human problems being exported to the planet.
