Trouble is, EI, that a certain percentage of the population (half-wits) will be inspired to act out such antics in inter-personal disagreements. Anything that seems to normalize it, edges them closer to it.

people are also interested in who is the best fighter.
sometimes 1 has to defend themselves and fights happen -
these athletes are role models i nthe sense that they are fit as f*ck
+ to my knowledge advocate using their skills in self defence or in a ring/fair contest.
do archery / shooting events glorify guns + killing ?

Firearms are used in sports shooting. 
Firearms only become weapons in the wrong hands.

Lucky I didn't pay a cent to watch it, thanks to live streaming. It was $60 on Main event which was daylight robbery.

pretty common for parents to send their kids to martial art lessons..
natural extension is combat sports, testing the skills you worked hard to develop.
in a controlled environment against someone else in the same situation.
if watching it isn't you cup of tea, fair enough..i don't watch synchrosied swimming
 - but i 've got no issue with other people practising it.

swanks made a good point ealrier too..

boxing may not look as gruesome as the ufc fights where blood is splattered
around - but repeated punching to the head in boxing is more likely to have long term
effects than the blood nose/concussion or whatever short term injuries that are more likely
without the big gloves...yes there are risks in both, but there are risks in any sport.
you could fall off your chair playing chess + knock your head on the table.Smile

Sink the boot in  ? Hit them when they're down ? These expressions have entered the language as symbolic of unfair play, and excessive force, but they are the stock-in-trade of this "sport", which will inevitably re-inforce it as normal, acceptable behaviour in the wider world of impressionable youth.

She was gonzo even before the kick. In the previous fight she won on her feet & I think she thought she was invincible....her strength is on the ground with her judo background. ! I think the Aussie girl will bowl her again in a rematch if she does not get her to the ground !

The thing with UFC is its horses for courses....usually find they have a core skill type....boxing, wrestling, judo, martial arts ect.....& depending on the match up different skill sets dominate .

i'm pretty sure holm is a yank 1:1.

+ yes that was the selling point early on, howw would a judo expert go v a boxer
or a wrestler v a karate expert etc..+ that's still a big part of the interest..
seeing how different styles match up.

Very interesting you like to promote yourself as some domestic violence expert and here you are loving UFC in all its bloody violence........ yep, its all 100 percent alcohol to blame.........nothing at all to do with power, control, desensitization to extremely violent behaviour.....

a connection between domestic violence and combat sports?
..
could see it either way i suppose. normalizes it?
or gives people with an interest an outlet to do what they want to
v someone else who wants to do the same thing..in a controlled environment.
but personally i'm leaning to the latter..
i think people who have violent tendencies don't need inspiration form seeing it on tv.
it's part of their personality already, like alcohol doesn't make people violent,
just makes them less concerned about the consequences, when they are under the influence.

as a kid - friends + i would practise wrestling moves on eachother bodyslams..
sleeper holds - when hulk hogan + andre the giant + co were all the vogue.
i'm pretty sure at that point i hadn't clicked it was fake...was a kid, but still not silly
enough to actually hurt eachother. + it didn't make me want to bodyslam kids in the st.
