I've been involved in MMA writing for nearly a decade now and it's rare that something touches me so profoundly as Hip Show has. The level of athletes, the tremendously complex scoring system, and the realist environment for combat are unlike anything this sport has ever seen. I'm speculating Hip Show will be in the Olympics by 2020, and with good reason. Check out my analysis of what it means, not just to us, but to the entire universe as a whole.

This resembled penitentiary hall and yard fights more then legitimate martial arts competition.

Entertainment via fighting exploits the most basic and primal desires of humans. What's different about today compared to past is we can generally meet those desires without requiring the execution of one or both participants. Hip show brings it back to the executing of the entertainer, it's a significant step backward consistent with much about Russia today. Allowing men and women to be suplexed slammed off of 8 foot platforms is asking for the execution or utter breaking of the entertainer. Gang fights tactics are a reversion of the spirit that has evolved competitive martial arts to the disciplined and organized spectacle that is honored today. This is much more then two steps backwards. The sooner this garbage is finished and it's memory erased, the better it will be for legitimate martial arts competition universally.

Sorry dude, I can tell by your write up you're infatuated with the show, but I watched it Friday and found it more concerning then entertaining. I don't see it as competitive at all. When a guy can kick you in the neck from behind, cheap shot him while he is engaged with a different combatant, that isn't sport. When a guy can be pile driven by another fighter off a platform taller then both their heads, that isn't right. When a guy can be getting choked out by a rear naked from one guy and have his knee, ankle or foot tore up by another or be repeatedly bashed in the torso and face by another, that is prison shit. I don't think MMA needs this idiotic freak show to be associated with it at all.

If you can tell that by the write up, you clearly didn't read it. It's a satire.

Better late than never. Yes, it's fucking stupid and not a sport at all. It's so ridiculous the referees can't even score it correctly because they're trying not to get flying sucker punched.
