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.

Now we have an even sketchier Polish promotion called Team Fighting Championship. They don’t even bother with the multi-level labyrinth—or the production values—the Russians tried. They just rented out a warehouse, stacked some tires to create a ring, stuck five guys in there, and let them go at it.
