If Ultimate Fighting is not banned, more people will stay safe, and out of illegal activities. Those who oppose it believe it is too dangerous, and those who support it find it an economical and personal booster. With the already worsening job crisis, getting rid of MMA would result in a large number of lost jobs. After all of the information that I have collected, it would be a very logical decision to keep Mixed Martial Arts, but to maybe change the rules to make it safer.
It should also not be banned because boxers know the risks and they still choose to do it ; it is their choice not the community's. Another reason not to ban boxing would be because if boxing is banned it will be enforced by people who still like it and those who still want to fight, and if one dangerous sport is banned then all sports will eventually be because all sports have some dangerous aspects in them. Boxing has been around for many generations, and has been practiced all around the world. In fact, in World War II the cooks would fight to earn respect and sometimes fought for money. Boxing originated in Rome and Greece where they would tape their hands, which led to excruciating fights.
The blows to the head is damaged significantly by rotational acceleration of the cerebral cortex, and the spinal cord. This damage is provoked by the boxing gloves, which add weight and energy to the punches and causes more rotational acceleration. Also, the rules are not strict, there are no limitations on what a boxer can do to their opponent, until they declare a winner. Boxing does not have anybody on the side line determining whether or not the boxer is in position on finishing the fight. The only way boxing could potentially be safe was if it was regulated by a paternalism, but even then fans would not find it exciting and the purses would substantially
MMA should become a legal sport because it has no higher risks of injury than other sports, it teaches young viewers the need to know self defense, and could bring in revenue to the states. A number of critics argue that MMA is an outrageously dangerous sport compared to others. Bob Rielly, a New York state assemblyman and strong supporter of blocking
Wrestling's main motive is to reach a large-scale audience, and the sport relies on a predictable audience and appealing, symbolic entertainment. Truly, without the hundreds of fans that swear allegiance to wrestling, there simply would be no sport. The wrestlers go about entertaining the masses with outrageous matches and just a tough of cheesy drama. As proof of this, Putterman states: Most sports begin as games that the press and public then overlay with their own wish-fulfillment fantasies in order to turn the game into melodrama. Wrestling begins with the situation and characters of melodrama and then, t... ... middle of paper ... ... Clearly, wrestling is in existence for the show business, but relies on a mass audience to create the sport of wrestling.
Within a few years, the use of steroids be... ... middle of paper ... ...no tests for these masking drugs (Silverstein 68). These techniques and drugs for hiding steroid use are very effective, but this behind-closed-doors steroid use poses an ethical dilemma: is it fair? Most athletes choose to train and compete with nothing more than hard work and determination, and that is the way sports were meant to be. Some athletes, though, choose to put their lives in danger to gain an unfair and unnatural advantage. The users do not see their use as morally wrong because steroids are available to just about everyone, so the other athletes can use them, too.
He countered the argument of taking drugs will lead to the unfairness of the match effectively. In his article, he said, “We can't say the same for other sports, though we can remind competitors that among the array of performance enhancing aids which are available to them, such as acupuncture, hypnotism, hypoxic tents (that simulate high altitude) and the countless other perfectly legal performance enhancements are some that are probably more dangerous than drugs.” Other than that, we are the type of generation who are never bored of seeking the best in human ability. The prohibition of drugs usage in sport surely will affect the athletes’ performances and next lead to the “turning off” by the fans and this is surely a thing needs to be taken into account. I, myself, am agree with Ellis Cashmore that drugs should be allowed in sports and I will explain my argument in terms of the misconception about drug, the role of drug in promising competitive sports, and the function of drug in maintaining athletes’ health. First thing first, in order to change the entire rule of sports by allowing the presence of drugs in sports, the misconception about drugs should be clarified.
This unhealthy increasing of testosterone actually does improve the fighters training prior to their fight which gives them an unfair advantage. There are fighters that actually need to use TRT to stay healthy so they can compete. Chael Sonnen, UFC fighter is an example of this as he has stated, "I may have to stop the sport" after TRT was recently banned from the UFC (MMAJunkie Staff 3). Some fighte... ... middle of paper ... ...erforming enhancing drugs always seems to stir up a ton of controversy. This is still the case in mixed martial arts as fighters have been given advantage with the usage of TRT and other PED's as they have often not gotten tested prior to fight day.
It can promote fitness to younger kids. Boxing also provides a better lifestyle and a good job. Personally, I believe boxing should not be banned. Boxing has been given a bad reputation by many over the injuries sustained by retired boxers. Many boxers, after retiring, have grown to develop diseases and prolonged injuries in the latter stages of their glamorous lives.
Especially when parents such as fathers who are deemed to be role models for their sons would get passionate in watching boxing and using these ruthless language demonstrates how boxing is a violent sport not to just practice it but to watch it as well. This can cause conflict not only to children 's lives but to the parents’ lives as well, causing divorce to happen just by how television or the being in the audience of a boxing match can change someone 's life completely. Many viewers are fan of the sport because of how unpredictable the winners turn out to be for instance, in A Brief History of Boxing, it states that, “Interest in the sport was renewed by colorful fighters...Mike Tyson---sparked that interest into the ‘80s” (Allen) demonstrating on how someone like Mike Tyson could actually be known as the most well known professional
