MMA makes Jeopardy


The American television game show Jeopardy! was created by Merv Griffin, adn debuted in 1964. For some perspective, Randy Couture was one year old in 1964.

In 2013, in the TV Guide ranking of the 60 greatest game shows ever, Jeopardy! was #1.

Now in a sign that mixed martial arts has moved into the mainstream, the sport was the correct answer on a recent episode. The question concerned what sport the below quote originated from:

Bad news is, no one got the answer right. Incorrect replies included Hockey and Soccer.

In good news, the announcer did not say that the name of the sport and correct answer was "UFC." He said it was mixed martial arts.

Perhaps when MMA makes Jeopardy! and they get the answer right, the sport will have fully arrived.

Im just pissed alex said "sometimes when you kick you can injure your toe"...If I recall he was driving for a take down when he messed it up. Though it was in the "kickstarter" category so i can understand the confusion.Side note: the woman in the middle must be the lamest person ever, she was talking about her upcoming honeymoon where she will visit obscure old president's houses.
