Just saw the promo on Spike looks like it could be kinda cool, especially if you are a history buff. It showed Liddell on there, wonder in there will be more MMA guys participating.

Spike's Deadliest Warrior

Cool or Corny, what do you guys think?

I think it looks pretty cool. I'm easily amused though . I will probably check it out if I can. Do you know when it comes on? I know it said April but I didnt see a particular date.

April 1st, I think it premiers on the same night as Fight Night 18 and the new season of The Ultimate Fighter.....that will be a kick ass night of telivision if I am correct.

Personally I think it looks pretty cool, sometimes they use "science" to compare things that cant really be compared but it should be pretty interesting, I will definately watch it.


EDIT: It premiers on the 7th, not the first.

I lied oops

I usually watch the first episode of all combat sport related shows, just to see if I will like it, Setting the Tivo now.

A Spartan would murder a ninja in a standup fight. Spartan vs. Samurai is a better match, one that history geeks have been debating forever.

I'm sorry, maybe it's just me but I cannot get behind this sort of stuff. It's all way too subjective. Looks like a glimpse of Chuck Liddell in the promo as well, so clearly they are taking the high road and staying with authenticity and presenting it without gimicks. I'm sure they'll do what they can to interject facts into the narrative. But seriously- I think I'd enjoy this much better if I was still 12 years old.

They can declare a "deadliest warrior", but until it's proven by Mythbusters I won't the recognize decision.

It would have to a member of an US Special Force or Special Operational Force

Please, if we are talking prior to the advent of the gun, I'd take an English longbowman over ANY foe from any part of history, seriously. A longbow can puncture any kind of armor at the time, and had more range on it than any other projectile based personal attack weapon, mounted or otherwise. Arguably the most deadly military unit in the history of combat, again, prior to the advent of the gun.

Jackelope » Posted 1/30/07 10:59:00AM

Hopefully it will be all hand to hand combat type stuff.

To warglory- Actually, historically the most devastating military unit since the dawn of time has been the cavalry warrior. (Which was essentially a medieval tank) Read about when Atahuallpa was captured in ancient Peru. 160 spanish warriors, only half of which were mounted, overcame a force of 7,000+ Indians killing 2,000 of them and capturing their leader in a matter of a couple hours. Also- only a few of those cavalry warriors were killed. Like 2 or 4, I can't remember the exact number. It was an incredible victory, though. An army without a cavalry vs. an army with a cavalry was almost 100% of the time a complete rout. (with a few rare exceptions)

Although I do admit that the longbow was so revolutionary that it changed the shape of the battlefield. However, cavalry vs. archers almost always resulted in those archers getting totally smashed

If it's hand to hand I'm going to be rooting for my boys- Vikings. I would assume the Samurai will win, though.
