Fighting as a form of entertainment has existed for centuries. Granted, modern-day ethics has brought about a number of much-needed changes since the Romans, for example, who fought to the death in circular pits of doom. However, for some reason, we still crave seeing two humans hurt each other! All forms of Fight tickets are available to buy and sell via StubHub now, so get your fix fast!
The Evolution of Combat Sports
It's simple. Humans have always fought. Some of the earliest boxing contests can be dated right back to ancient Sumer. That's around the 3rd millennium BCE! Ancient Egypt is even known to have had organised combat events. The ancient Olympic competitions, a celebration for Zeus, featured boxing, wrestling and pankration, an event with barely any rules whatsoever, apart from no biting and no gouging the opponent's eyes out! A similar event appeared in ancient China, known as lei tai, although this was truly a no-holds barred contest. Staged on an elevated arena with no railing, fighters would use any means necessary to throw their opponent off the stage, even with the use of deadly weapons. Thankfully, organised fighting has come a long way since these barbaric times. With strict rules and regulations, varying degrees of protective clothing and qualified referees to watch over the proceedings, it's relatively rare that athletes are injured in any major way, considering their chosen sport, that is! Whether it's the mixed martial arts of the Ultimate fighting championship, the 'art of eight limbs' that is Muay Thai or the ancient Japanese tradition of Sumo Wrestling that floats your boat, StubHub can help you out. All sorts of Fight tickets are now available to buy and sell, so don't miss out!
Are You Ready to Rumble?!
Yes you! If you could, would you get in the ring? If the answer is yes, the Rough N Rowdy Brawl is there for those of us crazy enough to jump over the ropes, yet don't take fights so seriously. Here, the regular, untrained, slightly bonkers public can sign up for a bout in the ring. Or you can just watch the action unfold and listen to hilarious commentary by comedian Bill Burr. Somewhere between this and actual combat sports, there's WWE, an entertainment company known primarily for professional wrestling, which encompasses an engaging dramatic element to its acrobatic wrestling style. The point is, there's something in the realm of fighting for everyone, and StubHub is here to make sure you can experience whichever style of fight you want!
