Human beings are innately inventive. Someone invents the wheel and give it some time, the world has 1,000,000,000 automobiles.
Human beings have an inherent drive to see who can beat who in a physical fight. Thus was MMA born, from our DNA.
Human beings, many of them, are also naturally stupid. When something world-changing comes along, they take it in a stupid direction.
Thus MMA has been dragged in some stupid directions. Past examples include:
Tag Team MMA
Three man MMA lite
Two on Two MMA "In our opinion, it's actually safer than a one-on-one fight," declared Promoter Chance Farrar. "There's no elevated risk to the fighters. There's no blow that they could sustain in a two-on-two that they couldn't sustain in a one-on-one."
To this Hall of Shame, we can now add Footbrawl which combine Amercian football, MMA, rungy, and being really stupid.
