If this is the future of MMA then someone please fix my flux capacitor or at least point me in the direction of someone that can. Point me in the direction of Christopher Lloyd so I can see just what he’s been doing the past twenty years. If you said appearing in obscure made for television movies, then you are correct. What this truly is is not MMA at all. That is, if you don’t mind mixing in a little deadly weapons in with your uchi-matas and sprawl training.
At no point do I ever want to try what has been deemed ‘The Gathering’ by a group of elusive people called the ‘Dog Brothers.’ According to them, this is the resounding embodiment of mixed martial arts. Heck, they even have a website promoting it as such. We really can’t classify this activity as Street MMA since things are entirely too premeditated and actually have some sort of organization. So what now — we have an unclassifiable method of fighting and all we have is this video to show for it. Hmph, that should be good enough.
Check out what happened at the Dog Brothers Open Gathering just a few weeks ago and notice that people are fighting with friggin’ machetes. Granted, if they were actually real it would bring the level to ‘Thunderdome’ territory.
