    Tired of watching boxing, MMA fighting and wrestling? Well, here is a new sport for you- slap fighting. In the second video, one of the fighters actually gets knocked out!

    I wonder if Will Smith was the inspiration for this new sport?

    I think that Chris Rock should enter the competition. It looks like he can really take a hard slap.

    While I agree with the mentality of "boys will be boys" and not interfering with it when others do it, I just don't like the idea of combat "sports," the idea of two people squaring off to pummel each other, for ME.

    As someone on Twitter observed, I believe, the potential for concussion in slap fighting is kind of high.

    But, one thing I found out from an old-time cage fighter: when you are in a fight, for the sake of your knuckles, use your fist on the body, but your palm on someone's face/bones.

    I hope not. Some of the super-big guys doing this over in Poland, Russia, etc. come to mind. But, they also have armor and shield-and-swords fighting over there. It is so weird to see two guys pummel each other with a sword in a ring.

    Example:

    They very often use the shield as a weapon.

    Here is a similar contest- body shot punching!

    A body shot against an unprepared Harry Houdini killed him.

    Another sport I'm not going to line up for.
