Basically, what we're looking at is an underground mixed martial arts show -- underground by necessity because in New York, MMA is illegal. And news outlets like Fox 5 would rather get on their high horses and tell us how deplorable these fights are than actually explore whether MMA is safe, and whether making it legal and properly regulating it would make it safer.
News reports like these, unfortunately, make it less likely that MMA will ever be legalized and sanctioned in New York. And, as Cage Potato notes, what this is really about is the folks at Fox 5 wanting an excuse to show violence while acting like they're morally superior to the people engaging in that violence. Well done, Fox 5.
