Fascinating, though I wonder how the fights would be "scored" if there's no injury.

This really is like a '70s dystopia brought to life.

I don't see what's dystopian about it since (presumably) all participants are involved voluntarily and there are no injuries.

From the headlines I thought ISIS resurrected an innovative way of executing their prisoners. *sigh*

Hits I guess.... think laser tag.

I don't see a problem with this assuming all parties are consensual and it is a safe sport.

 

In fact, I'd watch that shit.


People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway. 
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway. 
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. 
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. 
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway. 
The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds. Think big anyway. 
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. Fight for a few underdogs anyway. 
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. 
People really need help but may attack you if you do help them. Help people anyway. 
Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway.

I guess that could work.

That's the point.

True, there won't be any deaths, but I'm not sure I'd be enticed to watch this. I'd rather there be bloodshed. That said, I'd rather this be in virtual reality.
