    Group MMA Fighting Is Absolutely as Terrible as It Sounds (Video)

    In it’s current form, MMA is one of the hottest, fastest-growing sports in the world. So obviously there are geniuses out there who think they can do better than Dana White by tweaking the format. The holy grail of new MMA formats? It’s group fighting, apparently. People just keep trying to make it work, even […]

    Referee Suplexes 12-Year-Hockey Player, Breaking His Wrist (Video)

    You know who’s not caught up in the Olympic spirit? Pretty much everyone at the peewee hockey game between Brokenhead and Sagkeeng in Winnipeg last Saturday. There was no sportsmanship or camaraderie, and there was no setting aside of differences. Instead, there was only physical violence and an abundance of foul language. The two teams […]

  • Lithuanian Soccer Teammates Fight Each Other During Game (Video)

    Lithuanian Soccer Teammates Fight Each Other During Game (Video)

    If I say two soccer players got sent off for fighting, you automatically assume I’m talking about two players on opposing teams. And I certainly don’t blame you. However, in this case, I’m actually talking about teammates. The team? Top-tier Lithuanian side Dainava Alytus. During a recent league match against Banga, which they lost 1-0, […]

  • Lacrosse Brawl! (Video)

    Lacrosse Brawl! (Video)

    Lacrosse is an interesting sport. It was invented by Native Americans, which is pretty cool, but it kind of feels a lot like hockey with weird sticks and no ice. There’s almost as much padding, probably as much checking, and definitely as much fighting—and that includes your standard one-on-one fights, plus your garden variety line […]

    Badminton Fight! (Video)

    Hey, did you happen to catch the mens doubles finals of the Canada Open Badmintion Tournament on…um, I don’t know, ESPN 14 over the weekend?  No?  Well, me either. I don’t think it was actually on ESPN 14, or any other fictitious sports channel for that matter. And it’s a shame, too, because we missed […]

  • The 9 Nastiest Baseball Brawls of All-Time

    The 9 Nastiest Baseball Brawls of All-Time

    Last Thursday, a bench-clearing brawl erupted between the Padres and Dodgers after San Diego’s Carlos Quentin took umbrage at being plunked by Los Angeles’ Zack Greinke. It was probably the most heated altercation we’ve seen in MLB since the Reds-Cardinals melee back in 2010, and it resulted in another altercation between Carlos Quentin and Matt […]

  • Rugby Fans Brawl During Super League Match in South Africa (Video)

    Rugby Fans Brawl During Super League Match in South Africa (Video)

    There was a really nasty brawl at the Sharks-Kings game back on March 9. However, it wasn’t the Sharks-Kings game you’re thinking. The San Jose Sharks played the Blues that day, and the Los Angeles Kings played the Flames. No, the Sharks and Kings I’m talking about are South African rugby teams based in Durban […]

  • Brawl!: Pacers-Warriors Fight Spills Into Stands (Video)

    Brawl!: Pacers-Warriors Fight Spills Into Stands (Video)

    It’s funny how we view fighting in sports. If it’s hockey, well fighting is no big deal. You duke it out, then you take a five-minute breather and you’re back in the game. No ejection, no suspension, no fine. But if you fight in any of the other major sports leagues? Forget about it. You’re […]

    PSV and Feyenoord Brawl in Tunnel After Pivotal Dutch Soccer Match (Video)

    The top of the standings in the English Premier League, the Spanish Primera Liga, and the German Bundesliga aren’t exactly crowded this season. In each case, one team sits at the top—Manchester United, Barcelona, and Bayern Munich respectively—enjoying a comfortable lead of at least 12 points over the #2 team. However, things are a lot […]
