JOPLIN, Mo. — Legislators are seeking to ban mixed martial arts competitions — sometimes called "cage fighting" — among children in Missouri, which appears to be the only state where youth matches are allowed.

Children fighting for sport? Its pathetic...Childrens bones arent as strong, which includes the skull. Wait until a kid is accidentally hurt real bad or killed.
Theres a difference between learning to protect yourself and climbing into a cage to prove it.
Normally you teach a kid to fight so he doesnt have to, you know the whole discipline thing.
