Ultimate fighting for KIDS!
Yes, you read that correctly: for kids.
It looks like we have moved on from the days of white and yellow belts. We are now arming our kids with lightly padded gloves, shin guards and mouthpieces. No longer are they taught self-discipline and respect, but kill the kid across the ring. Your mission is to get your opponent to submit, knock him out or lose.
Mothers that missed out on abusing their children by subjecting them to Little Miss Beauty Pageants can now throw their little boys into the octagon where two children enter and one slightly tougher child leaves.
Parents enthusiastically cheer on their child as they destroy an opponent's nose with a roundhouse kick. How precious.
This can only happen in Arkansas, right? Nope, it is thriving right here in the great state of Arizona.
The championships are held at the Blue Water Resort and Casino in Parker.
