AbstractCage Fighting is a contest where two people are put in a cage with a padded floor about the size of a king size bed and fight. The sport has far less rules than boxing, and criticizers of the sport say that it encourages irresponsible alcohol consumption and fan violence, along with sometimes leaving participants crippled. Supporters of Cage Fighting see it as a legitimate sport, a test between modern-day gladiators demonstrating their athletic prowess. Other contact sports pose a danger to participants, and yet they are not regulated.
