    Somebody who has excellet footwork and and a good jab would do very well I think, they can get out of the way of their opponent and a jab with a sword is going to do a lot more damage than a jab with a glove

    Not many fights would be going to a decision

    These threads are retarded..

    They should all just be called: "What can a man learn in such a such period of time to were he can compete at a competent level."

    Although Overeem with spikes on his knees would be brutalllll

    I don't think you've read up on how gladiator battles worked, and are assuming it's like in the movie of the same title.

    They were not as they are portrayed in movies.

    Roman gladiator fights were scripted, just like pro wrestling is these days. It cost a lot of money and training to raise gladiators, so the owners weren't about to risk them getting injured if they could help it. They only had the winner kill the loser about one time in ten, on special occasions when they really wanted to please the crowd. So the fight would end however the Roman equivalent of Dana White wanted it to end.

    Lol. The only reason I check out these brain dead threads is due to funny responses like this.

    if the fight would be until death, GSP would kill by gassing off the oponent in a 3 hours fight in the ground
