A Lesson in Street MMA: Don't act up at SXSW unless you want a one-punch KO

A Lesson in Street MMA: Don't act up at SXSW unless you want a one-punch KO

Now that Austin's South by Southwest Music Festival has wrapped up, expect an exuberant number of fight videos to float in the MiddleEasy vicinity. It's as if when people mingle at a large social gathering, the entire concept of diplomacy evades their logic. What could generally be 'talked out' in a normal setting elevates to this violent rhetoric that involves backing up, rolling up sleeves, and screaming obscenities for everyone around to hear. They say fighting is in our blood, but so is compassion -- even more so, actually.

Nevertheless, MiddleEasy is a website that's predominantly concerned with humans fighting other humans, so I sound like a colossal hypocrite when I suggest the world needs to stop the violence. Well, if you are going to get violent, don't do it at SXSW, or else this may happen to you. Props to @MattRoth512 for the find.

Zeus @MiddleEasy

Zeus is represented by Galactus in his avatar image because he has an immature obsession with Marvel when they went all sci-fi back in the mid 80s. I'm the creator of MiddleEasy and Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Just kidding about the Nickelodeon stuff, but that would be really cool.
