1. It’s not a thirst for blood, not at all—but an astonishment, an appreciation for the capabilities of a human that bares his soul naked for the art of combat using strictly his body.

    I wonder how this combat thing has been embraced by the grappling community? It just seems like a silly addendum/novelty, the basis of which begs the question: why not go full bore with it and allow punching? Why stop at slapping if the spirit of this is to mimic real life whatever?

    God, I wish Metamoris had worked out. That platform, the production, the set-up, everything was so fucking pleasing to watch.

    I only wish there were no time limits on matches; I guess that's another thing I don't understand/wish were different. Fuck it; livestream a match for 12-24-67 hours. Would rather watch someone tap to exhaustion than an arbitrary decision or draw or whatever.

    Pretty much, everyone thinks it's legit and no one wants to do it after watching it.
