Here's a better question: what is wrong with allowing 2 people ...


in a fair fist fight with rules? For centuries, that's how men resolved their arguments. These are two trained fighters.

And what is the value allowing people to beat the crap out of each other within rules? Do you not watch football and hockey? I believe they are both multi billion dollar industries. So yes ... people will pay billions for the entertainment factor.

Which sport allows you to hide behind social media / talk? We see riffs between basketball players all the time. Baseball players continue to get into bean wars which is far more dangerous. Pitchers don't even have to bat in the AL.

That said, my comment about hiding behind avatars and computer screens were more societal. A lot of people say vile things through social media WITHOUT having to deal with people face to face. Now McGregor will have to put up or shut up. He's already been pounded by Khabib before.
