MMA bloodsport must be banned

Published 19/04/2016

How much more proof do we need to ban this so-called sport of mixed martial arts (MMA)? How much longer will this barbarity be tolerated?

Hitting a person when he or she is on the ground was never acceptable. To be allowed to do so must question the very concept of civilisation. Queensbury must be turning in his grave at the sight of those fighters in action. To top it all, we allow children to watch this bloodsport - at the cage side.
