Ever since The Ultimate Fighter became the violent opiate of the masses, backyards have become a battleground of half-assed- and poorly-executed MMA bouts, with teens and grown men alike throwing down in often technique-less fashion.
Of course, leave it to New Jersey to take the whole “backyard MMA” motif one step further, and into a realm involving wild animals.
Behold, the Bear Fighting Championships, which was held recently in the Garden State and under the auspices of the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board (whose officials are off-screen). The main event bout in question has it all: sloppy grappling, even sloppier striking, garbage cans, and of course, broken fences. Who wins this pivotal contest? Two out of three judges had it for Yogi, but decide for yourself.
