A New Low
Warning: Violence And Harsh Language
Well, once again I have surfed the primordial ooze of the Internet, and emerged with the fetid stink of a video that just won't wash off.
Why post this crap? Good question. I almost didn't. But just as the droppings of the Indonesian Civet Cat are made into the most expensive coffee in the world, we may find a simple truth in the garbage heap that is this fight. At least the fight between Ray and Jorge in the pervious post was run respectfully by the Kimbo Slice crew. This one has a title that says it all- "Felony Fights".
This is a shining example of what UFC has done to the martial arts. In it's exemplary brilliance it clearly shows how contemporary fighting systems have lost their dignity, composure and sense of righteousness. Young people watching and emulating this behavior today aquire martial skills while circumventing the aspects of self-development, cooperation and structure. Rather than peaceful Asian tones associated with meditation, these video's always use out-of-control head-banger anger music. Watching this video is experiancing the self-disgust of fascination with a car wreck. The UFC has brought about a sea change of martial innovation, much of it is simply for the worse.
