    Nice family oriented activity, take the toddlers, kiddies to watch men beat on each other in brutal, bloody matches.

      Ought to stage how men beat up their women in Utah which has one of the nation’s highest rate of domestic violence against women.

    Who said anything about it being a family event? Was there nothing to whine about so you needed to pull one out of thin air to reach your daily quota of negativity? I just reached my quota….

    Nice to see this event in St. George. No, it wasn’t for the kiddies or generally a family event but does everything have to be? I did enjoy taking my teenage son to this event who is also a huge boxing, wrestling and MMA fan. There should be room in this community for all kinds of events. I thank the promoters and the Dixie Center for having this event.
