Ultimate Fighting is Not a Sport

Barbarism is the absence of standards to which appeal can be made.
José Ortega y Gasset (1883–1955), essayist

Ultimate Fighting is very barbaric and does not appear to be a sport to me. I’ll be the
first to admit that I have never watched it longer than 30 seconds because I equate it to dog or cock fights; it seems to appeal the lowest levels of human nature.

Boxing used to be a sport, but now it seems a sport for suckers who are willing to pay $50 to cable companies.

I have I missed something about this growing Neanderthalic sport?
