What if we lived in a warrior type society where one man could take any mans belongings if he could beat him a cage match?

Your wife

Your kids

Your dog

Your vintage Rolex that your dying grandpa left you

Any man could take it from you. All he has to do is walk up and challenge you to a cage match. You have 30 days to prepare, but realistically, because of the warrior society, you should be in top physical shape at all times. If you choose not to fight, the man takes your challenge item by default. But if you win, you win all that mans belongings. Meaning that, there is more in it for the DEFENDER than the CHALLENGER. Because the challenger can only win, say, your wife. But you as the defender, if you beat him, you win everything of his.

Outside of fighting dirty, like really dirty, I'm fucked. 

 

Though based on this fictitious society of yours my current self would have nothing of value to lose anyways.

Well, it would really all depend on who the person you were battling was, right? Derp

 I would have been ok until I hit about 30. Back surgeries, work, age took its toll. Now I'd be begging for food and spare change from all of the younger kids who focus on going to the gym and training.

In that scenario I assume Id be in peak physical form due to societal demands. In that case, I’d do very well for a 42 year old. I’d certainly have more wealth than I have now. At any rate, I think there has to be a “Safe Age” meaning that you reach a certain age and no one can mess with you anymore. No 60 year old can defend against a peak condition 28 year old.

I think I can beat most people my age and size but I can't beat a methed out Hawaiian that's 27.  I might be able to beat some of them Royce Gracie vs Severn style but I'd probably be useless afterwards

the strongest i ever got was barely in the 1000lb club at 220.  nothing that special.  i'd probably be as successful as i am now i guess.  better than most, but far from the top.

Wishful thinking bro...

This is not a world meant for the very young or old.

I didn't read op but based on cursory scanning, it's safe to say I'd fuck your mother.
