Is there any reason we should ban mixed martial arts?

  • Barbaric, promotes violence as a source of entertainment.

    That the participants are willing makes no difference. If people are willing to fight with baseball bats or knives, is that OK? MMA is a barbaric spectacle that promotes violence. Any activity that is illegal on the street should be illegal in the ring as well. I don't think that violence can or should be entirely banned as a source of entertainment, but it should be restricted and regulated. MMA goes too far.

  • It should be banned

    Because loads of little kids watch it and do the same thing. It is bloody and very gory even for adults. It is a extremely bad idea for people who copy it. People might think it is right to fight in the streets but it is extremely dangerous for people fighting to the death!

  • Martial arts is actually more safe than other sports.

    For example, football. Or soccer, as some people call it. In that sort of sport, you can often see players getting angry with each other and hit each other etc. In martial arts, you fight, but without true anger towards your sparring partner. And one more much dangerous sport compared to martial arts is horseback riding, would you rather trust a horse, which is actually a wild animal, how good friend you might be with the horse, you can't trust an animal to 100% to not hurt you. In martial arts, you're in a controlled environment and everyone knows exactly what they're doing. Of course there is stuff to work on, you can find pros and cons in every sport. But to professionally practice martial arts and compete in it, is not much worse than any other sport.

  • People will always want to pit themselves against one another physically.

    MMA is very much a sport which requires prolnged and intensive training. Yes, there have been several highly publicised incidences recently of competitors being severly injured or even dying, but that is the risk that most professional sports cary.
    Your average MMA practioner knows exactly what they're getting into when they get into the octagon and have trained for years to reach this point of excellence. They know the risks, they accept the risks.

  • No it should not be banned!!!!!!!

    Mixed martial arts should not be banned! In this generation there is no clue when someone will attack or try and hurt you. So if you do martial arts you can learn to defend yourself. As a matter of fact I do both Taekwondo and Juijitsu. You never know if youll be attacked. Yes there is the risk of using it at innopropiate times but that should be known when you start i say no! -written by a 7th grader

  • No, mixed martial arts should not be banned.

    There is no reason mixed martial arts should be banned. First of all, the people in the sports are willing participants. Plus, mma has never been proven to be any more dangerous than other sports like boxing. I think that like any other sport, mma has dangers, but it is nothing exclusive to the sport.

  • No, it involves two consenting adults and banning age-old human activities like drinking, using drugs, and fighting just drives them underground and endangers those involved

    MMA is a violent sport. It's not hard to see why people would be concerned. But as it is, the grown men and women who decide to get in the cage can see a good doctor if they think they're hurt. They can insure parts if they want to and they can openly admit that they make their living brawling if they suddenly collapse. They don't have to conceal the fact that they might be sick because they got beaten up. They have a dangerous job that some people may not agree with,but they are consenting adults and their job is not going away because its illegal.

  • The Right to Fight.

    Their is no reason to ban mixed martial arts in a free society. Individuals have the right to play whatever sport, they desire so long as the goal is not to out right kill someone. MMA is of course considerably violent, but it is not a modern gladiatorial game.

    In MMA the individual has a right to surrender whenever they so desire, and no man or woman fights in an MMA match against their will. Every fighter is competing because they have chosen to compete in that event. Free people have a right to live their life as they want so long as they do not infringe on the rights of other people. Free choice in a free society dictates that MMA must be allowed under correct conditions.

  • Its a sport

    Mixed martial arts fighting is actually a sport - fighting has been a sport for eons, and several kinds of fighting or wrestling (with even MMA-like rules) were present at the original Olympics. MMA is not more dangerous than any of the other forms of fighting, and people know what they're getting into when they get into the ring.

  • No, I don't believe there is any reason we should ban mixed martial arts.

    I believe as long as both individuals participating in mixed martial arts are willing participants then there is no problem with it, I believe that proper safety precautions must be taken to make sure a serious injury does not occur but I don't see any reason at all that it should be banned.
