    That's just brutal to make your kids go through, win or lose

    The noise alone is traumatizing

    If you were a fighter in the ufc, how old until your kids sit cageside? How about watching live on tv?

    Disgraceful. UFC events should be 21+ events because it's basically a bar with sanctioned fights

    I agree.
    Small children should not be exposed to fights like Bigfoot - Cain or any Diego Sanchez fight.

    There his kids and he can bring them up as he chooses. I'm sure they don't really understand it and aren't glued to the fight watching intensely. They are 3. Plus their dad is a mma fighter and just making them get use to it do its the norm and they dont get traumatized later on when they grow up. Both boys too.

    That's bad. It could have just as easily been this.

    I agree children should not be allowed at UFC fights. They should be working 22 hours a day in some third world country making smartphones.

    Yikes! I'd really have to give some thought to what age I'd let my kids watch me fight, but for me, anything under 10 is an immediate no brainer.

    I mean, what if Brown got beat down and finished in spectacular fashion? Imagine seeing your father being hurt and hearing everyone cheer while it's happening? Kinda makes me feel sick to think about it.

    You're right, it's his choice. But that doesn't mean we can't ask the question.

    One of MMA's most awkward moments ever.

    I agree ts. It's a rough sport and I believe kids should not be exposed to violence at such a young age

    In the first round when Brown got kicked in the stomach and fell down, you get a clear camera shot of his family and their reactions. His mother dropped her face and couldn't even look.

    His little kids couldn't look away, as they were glued to the action of some strange man repeatedly elbowing their father in the face.

    Disturbing imo

    I'd probably let my kids watch me fight if they said they wanted to. But if they're that young I can't really think they would. I don't know.


    Agree with this though.

    I went huntin' with my uncle as a kid and watched him mercilessly kill animals. I was disturbed but I learned to respect the graceful beast as only he did. The people at home considered these animals as just meat, he considered them as friends and compassions.
    Ever since, I have dedicated my life to protecting wildlife.

    Kids can be there. It's part of life. I let my girlfriend come to my fights. She isn't into it but she supports me. I'd have my kids there if they wanted to attend
