MMA spawns another birth defect: UltimateBall

by Kirik Jenness | source:

The Underground Blog recently did a piece on Stupid MMA offshoots, that closed with the predicition that "the only thing you can be sure of is that someone, somewhere, is going to try to improve on the world's greatest sport, and the result will be ... stupid."

It happened again.

To the list of tag team MMA, three man MMA, MMA while wrist wrestling, and MMA with electric shock gloves, we now have UltimateBall.

UltimateBall is kind of a cross between water polo without water, and murder ball without wheelchairs, and a hot mess, and team handball with tackles, and Rugby, and grappling, with eight guys wearing MMA gloves for no discernible reason, plus a referee, in a cage.

Speaking to the skeptics, the promotion says "in 1993 they said that UFC will never take off, look at it now, UltimateBall is the sport of the future, this isnt just an MMA ad on this is a NEW sport in its own right."

The British are an inventive people, having invented or discovered English, oxygen, postage stamps, The Rolling Stones, text messaging, boxing, the World Wide Web, Spotted Dick (it is a dessert), flush toilets (I met his great grandson once, last name is Crapper), Viagra, and Uranus. Thus it is not a great surprise that an Englishman invented UltimateBall.

I was trying to remember the name, and then it came to me... The sad thing is that this horrible idea is not even an ORIGINAL horrible idea... I give you: Fight Football., though, can anyone imagine this really taking off as a sport? "Yeah, I'd love to go fishing on Friday, but my son Robert has his highschool Ultimateball tryouts that day and I promised I'd be there to support him...")

I've seen a lot of stupid things in my life. A whole lot.But really, this takes the cake. This is the stupidest thing I've ever seen.I mean, when I was ten me and my buddies would play a similar game in the basement, but that's because we were children.These people are not children. This is stupid.
