The Future of Intentional Violence

In 2011 UFC President Dana White vowed never to let women into the Octagon. A short five years in the future, in 2016, explosively growing Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is probably the first contact sport in history in which the women combatants like Rhonda Rousey, Holly Holm, and Meisha Tate are better known and a bigger draw than the men. As other sport becomes injury-proof, will fans head elsewhere? The Future of Intentional Violence in Sport 2040 features an all-women’s cast from The MMA Lab Mixed Martial Arts Training Center. In the future, women dominate not just the ring, but also the entire arena. When we say all-women we mean it. No men allowed. Viewer discretion is advised. This room will contain violence.
