Ultimate Fighting Championships for kids

I really, REALLY wish that the story below came from a fake-news source such as The Onion. But unfortunately, this is real.

Ultimate fighting was once the sole domain of burly men who beat each other bloody in anything-goes brawls on pay-per-view TV.

But the sport often derided as "human cockfighting" is branching out.

The bare-knuckle fights are now attracting competitors as young as 6 whose parents treat the sport as casually as wrestling, Little League or soccer.

Seems a little crazy. Unless, of course, you want your 6-year-old to be part of the "Garage Boys Fight Crew."
