I know I'm behind in local goings on....
I just heard about cage fighting taking place in this area. Supposedly, kids, teens, young adults are beating each other up under the guise of martial arts.
Is this true? Are our children being encouraged to street fight and beat the heck out of each other?
We have enough rage, anger and anti-social behavior in our youth without encouraging it.
I'd appreciate hearing some rational, factual comments.

NO, little kids are not involved in this...almost every promotion has a rule that you have to be 18 yrs of age, however, some just require you to be 17 with a parents consent...BUT Josh Musick is 17, and he fights...but he has also trained since he was like 12 or 13 and has never been beaten! Dont knock it til you try it...or at least watch it! The best promotion around here is Warrior MMA though!

I'm a Professional Mixed Martial Arts fighter out of Corbin. I've competed in HS wrestling, football, soccer and baseball. I even played 2 seasons of Semi Pro Football with the Jay County Cougars out of Portland, Indiana.

"Cage Fighting" as you call it is a sport where it combines boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, and other martial arts. It is a sanctioned sport by over 30 states in the US and is currently sanctioned in Kentucky. It has a rules set down by the state. You have to be 18. These "street fights" as you call them include 2 trained individuals who have experience in stand up and ground fighting. If you are not aware there are at least 4 gyms in London alone that train MMA fighters. Scott Hope from London is a world class grappler and fighter.

MMA is a safe sport. That is funny to hear knowing you are boxing and kickboxing somebody but unlike in boxing after you take 3 or 4 shots and the ref feels like you are not defending yourself the fight is stopped. Boxing if you are knocked down and are able to get back up you are going to be put down again until you are not able to continute at all. There are injuries in the sport but isn't there always a football player somewhere who dies during summer practice or is almost paralyzed? I've been doing MMA for 3 years and the worst sport injury I have ever gotten was from heading a soccer ball during a match and I got a concusion.

Over50 I think your post and comments are stereotyping as well as uneducated on the sport. MMA doesn't cause rage or anger matter of fact if you are getting your frustrations out on a punching bag I think that would be very relaxing afterwards. As for anti social the MMA family here locally is a very tight nit group of people.

I think you have a misunderstanding of what MMA is. If you open to it, there is going to a Pro MMA show in Corbin in June that I believe I will be main eventing in. I would like for you to be my special guest so you can see what the fuss is all about.

LMAO...I know josh personally...as well as his girlfriend, I think he has quite a few amateur fights to go before he signs a contract! He is very talented...and it wouldnt surprise me if he went on to be in the UFC...or maybe even WEC!

Thanks for the info. I really didn't know anything about it. That's why I asked. I just heard someone talking about it and wanted some information.

It's "inhumane" to fight roosters; "inhumane" to fight dogs...but, we put human beings in a ring to beat the hell out of each other...???????
yeah, go ahead, blast me all you want...talk about the "skill" required. It is human beings beating the hell out of each other, taking their frustrations out on another human, drawing blood, making someone else hurt, and on and on and on.
Justify it as martial arts, skill, etc...
WHATEVER!! It is what it is...humans doing something that when animals are in the same predicament, someone goes to jail.
Blast me all you want; I won't respond because nothing you can say changes the facts.

The difference is the humans CHOOSE to beat the hell out of each other the animals are put together for the sole purpose of fighting. After they are put in the cage or whatever, yes they fight, but it is not free choice.

damn girly girl...your dyin to get blasted aren't ya??!! Lol...TO each's own...but like i said...dont knock it til you try it or watch it! Basketball, Soccer, Football, and baseball are all just as dangerous! Hell Look at wrestling...All those guys are on roids...at least the UFC and other mma organizations test for this crap! Most "talented and Skilled" fighters dont even punch...they use submissions...so quit whining about it, if you dont like it then keep it to yourself...cause whether or not you like it...its here...and its one of the most top rising sports in america!! Good Bye Boxing and wrestling...cause MMA is here to stay!!!!!!
