    Lets say 10-15 years from now some promoter figures out a way to hold legal fights to the death and air them on PPV.

    First question

    They use death row inmates in order to keep it somewhat civilized. The people who fight are volunteers who chose death fights instead of death row. Do you watch?

    Second question

    The people who fight are just random people who volunteered in exchange for one hundred million dollars if they win. Do you watch?


    In movies the idea seems cool and all, but if this was reality I don't think I would be able to watch. To think hard bad of a beating someone would have to put on someone to kill them, it would be pretty brutal. Or you would just see a guy hold a RNC for like 8 minutes. Either way it would be rough to watch in either scenario.

    No. I couldn't. I'm sure enough people would, though, to make this obscenely profitable.

    Death Row Fighting Championships?

    Maybe.

    For money? No.

    Death matches would be much more brutal. Less technique and more biting and eye gouging. Not really my cup of grape drink tbh

    I'm not gonna lie, I think morbid curiosity would get the best of me and I would probably watch it once. I wouldn't be a regular viewer though.

    I would want to. I'll start watching but i think it will be tough to deal with when someone's actually getting killed &#55357;&#56854;

    Nah, that's out. Don't need any more examples of human savagery filling my day. Especially one to that degree.

    It would only be entertaining if there were weapons involved - sword fights, etc.

    This is pretty much why I wouldn't watch, tbh. Otherwise, I'd be curious.

    But I have no interest whatsoever in seeing someone trying to bite out someone else's jugular.

    Just a circle ring surrounded by a moat filled with hungry crocodiles.

    I am having a hard time believing you when I look at your AV.
