Dog fighting may be illegal, but apparently “dawg” fighting is totally cool. Or, actually, it probably isn’t legal either, but so what? Despite whatever is happening in Las Vegas under the warm glow of regulation and pay-per-view lights, there will always be room in our hearts for dudes in South Florida fighting in backyards while crowds of hundreds cheer them on.

Having been to countless underground fights in New York City, I can tell you there’s definitely a certain allure to see unsanctioned brawling. Obviously, regulated fighting is safer, but sometimes you just want to get your feet dirty.
