So there’s a new show on MTV where a supposed “bully” is matched up against a trained MMA fighter and goes three rounds with him. I don’t entirely remember how it works (only submissions in the first round, then punches and kicks, then both I think), but in each round the “bully” starts out with about $5000. However, for each tapout he loses $1000. Invariably, the “bully” gets destroyed and loses all the money.
Words just do not express how sick and ridiculous this show is. It’s literally the equivalent of a grown man beating up a little defenseless kid. How can MTV be allowed to put out such filth?
I would not be surprised if the fights are fake and the outcome is determined ahead of time. I remember reading that the channel’s “dating” shows (“Parental Control” and “Next”) were scripted, and with the precedent of pro wrasslin’, it seems even more likely they would fake a fighting show.
The crappy part is what squeegee mentioned - a lot of these bullies end up getting money. If the stories the victims tell are true, these guys are pretty big dickheads, and now they are getting paid for being a dickhead. Kind of stupid.
Yeah, I saw the one episode with “Vince” that Squeegee mentioned. This ass had thrown his former roommate through a door (IIRC) and owed the other guy tons of rent money with no intention of paying. I think he also wrecked the guys car and didn’t pay. (Why they don’t just go to the police I don’t know.)
Anyway, I was extremely dissapointed by the beatdown Westbrook put on him. He was clearly outclassed as a fighter, but he didn’t seem hurt at all. I was hoping for something out of Mortal Kombat on his ass. I was so let down I didn’t watch another episode.
