MMA makes Jeopardy

Saturday, October 26, 2013

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.
