Next week’s human cockfighting is free

If you were like Adam Morgan and thought the last RioHeroes was a steaming pile of dog shit, you weren’t alone. Apparently the ‘president’ of RioHeroes agrees with you, and is giving away the next episode for free to prove his product doesn’t suck:

We will now be giving away RioHeroes 12, the middleweight championship, for free on Nov. 27th, 2007. We know that it is only through our viewers support that we will be able to continue to broadcast and want to thank you for your understanding. Proper adjustments will be taken for the next tournament to ensure that the website will be able to handle such a heavy load.

Hey, I don’t really give most promotions second chances when the first chance turns out so poorly. But free is free, and I don’t have anything better to do next Tuesday. So lets just hope they don’t get overloaded again on account of it being free. That would just be embarrassing.

    on their website you can see a video RH8 finals. What a load of garbage. This takes the evolution of MMA 10 years back. I hope RH fails miserably.

    PS The chick commentator is awful.

    I cant understand why everyone is concerned about RH “taking the sport back to 1993″.

    Real fights. Real fight situations. Tough dudes letting it all out. There are no situations where a fighter has to think, can I do this…..

    If you got your opponent to the ground….You should have to think, Can I knee him, or Can I kick him in the head. WHATEVER IT TAKES TO WIN. There should be NO RULES when it comes to someone trying to beat the snot out of you across from you.

    Sure, the caliber of fighters are not the greatest. But FREE is FREE. and shows what would really happen in a fight situation.

    I hate when you see a fighter on the ground, making no effort to get up……he knows he cant get soccer kicked or knee’d in the head. That is B.S.

    They had a free deal with the last one. I got my password and all that but when I watched one of the old video’s I was not the least bit interested. Just as I have no interest of watching Kimbo Slice in someone’s backyard. I never used to password, won’t watch the next one either.

    Fightfan, if that’s what your into go for it. I’m into the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. I have no desire to watch a street fight. I can go see those live without even hanging over a computer screen.

    I am a huge fan of mma. I have followed the evolution of the sport since the early 90’s.

    When it comes down to it, I would pick a UFC event over anything. But FREE is FREE. I will watch it just for that fact….and for the fact that we all, whether you admit it or not, want to see someone get KTFO. I did say that most of the RH guys are not very skilled fighters. Every now and then I just want to see some dudes try and beat the living piss out of one another

  • Mobb Deep

    No rules doesn’t bother me, but I seen 1 RH show and everything about it sucked. Shit, I rather watch the IFL or better yet, search for naked pics of the new UFC ring girl (I know they’re out there somewhere).

  • igorpunck

    RH should be marketed as Vale Tudo. I have no problem with vale tudo since it’s an actual martial art not a glorified bar brawl. Production value of RH is shit, commentators are shit, fighters are shit, all about RH stinks.

    Fightfan, you should look into So You Wana Fight series, you might like it

  • Z

    Watch RH12 – the last one wasnt the best because 1.2 million people tried hitting the website at once. So if you think RioHeroes sucks, well it looks like you guys are standing outside the circle because a million plus people want and like it :-)

    UFC has skilled fighters, but the hollywood bullshit is so fucking annoying…

  • Ason

    besides 5 pesos production budget
    I don’t see this as being any different than any other MMA out there

    no gloves
    no rounds

    big deal, that makes it “cock-fighting”?

  • Jorge Pereira

    I don’t hide my opinion in fake names , and I gonna bring the real stuff back !!! More and more people begin to understand this. Some of you guys don’t know but I’ve dedicated all my life for the JiuJitsu and ValeTudo , but the real one ,no that hollywood thing that a lot of guys think is the real situation in the street!

    RE: “free is free”

    I’d just like to point out that 2g1c is free. Doesn’t mean I’m gonna watch it a second… er, fifth time.
