All fun and games until someone scores a take down.

good luck getting licensed by any state athletic commission.

On the one hand, i'm not an engineer, but i suspect the physics would dictate that it would be hard to throw a punch with much force behind it.

On the other hand, there is still way too much that could go wrong.  I'm thinking this has to be a publicity stunt.

Dangerous and stupid.

How many days until the 'Internet Taken In By Skydiving/MMA Hoax' post?
This is just stupid. I don't want to live in a world with MMA skydiving.
No, I take that back. I want to live in a world where the only MMA fighting happens while skydiving so repressed homoerotic blood sport becomes a self-limiting problem.

This also sounds like the background of a J.G. Ballard story.

What if someone gets injured so they can't activate their parachute, or properly recover if the main fails?  If this isn't a full on hoax/publicity stunt, I at least suspect it's more sparring rules than trying to destroy your opponent.

I'm waiting for bat suit base jumping creationist debates, personally.  Bill Nye/Ken Ham rematch would be awesome!
2014-06-19 08:11:23 PM  
This is the stupidest thing I've ever seen

/and I'm an MMA fan

And now, for the inevitable "FLAPOUT" muscle shirts.

2014-06-19 08:31:22 PM  
It could make for some interesting ring girl attire.
2014-06-19 08:42:03 PM  
Hmmm.  A sport that can't have any spectators.
2014-06-19 10:41:05 PM  
Just grab your opponent really quick and toss him back towards the plane, right into the propeller!!!

MORTAL COMBAT BIATCHES!!!!  Muwahahaaaaaaa

/cough cough fake

meh get back to me when they are doing Sky Jousting
2014-06-19 11:17:57 PM  
If they did this without parachutes with winner getting to use the loser as a landing cushion it might work*.
*to improve the gene pool.

I say go for it, let us know how it works out.

Apparently the lowest common denominator is quite literally in free-fall.

This is just too stupid.
2014-06-20 02:30:16 AM  
I like how they're all doing it with a straight face.

This was my cue it's a joke: "I'm a pretty nice guy, but get me up in the air, I'm like a caged animal."
2014-06-20 02:55:32 AM  
Next on Fox Sports 1:  Choreographed aerial douchebaggery !!
2014-06-20 08:13:24 AM  
This is a joke, right?

I'd point out the obvious clues, but there's no way I can sit through something this inane.
2014-06-20 09:23:05 AM  
Good luck :)
2014-06-20 10:04:13 AM  
the goal isnt to kill the other person.

yeah.  gravity will do that for you in a minute or so.

2014-06-20 11:24:54 AM  
Not enough death in that vid for me.
2014-06-20 11:26:39 AM  
Even as a hoax, this is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.
2014-06-20 11:39:17 AM  
Simple solution:  Only provide one parachute and let Darwinism take its course.
2014-06-20 12:59:59 PM  
MMA fighting on the sky diving training machines would be fun to watch, otherwise a full on fight during a free fall sounds boring  because nothing's really going to happen.
2014-06-20 01:53:02 PM  
So how do they handle knockouts?
2014-06-20 03:31:56 PM  
Nobody has made a ground-n-pound joke yet?
2014-06-20 03:55:54 PM  
If real, then stupid.
2014-06-20 09:59:35 PM  
Yeah, I'm claiming BS on this.
2014-06-20 10:31:53 PM  
I don't see how anyone could think this is real.
2014-06-20 10:39:32 PM  
Unlike of course, team MMA, which is real and awesome.

yeah, that'll never happen... as fun as it sounds, paintballs have enough issues dealing with the laws of physics to fly straight without introducing skydiving challenges.  a little wind sends those buggers all over the place, most hoppers rely on some form of gravity to feed the gun (not all, mind you), and the vast majority of players can't hit squat without an added level of difficulty.
