Examined are some of the lessons from the Dynamite mixed martial arts and kickboxing card on December 31, 2010, at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, as well as combat sports in ancient Greece and Africa. Discussed is the critical issue of the values combat sports should embrace, as raised in the 2004 essay "The Nature of the Game: The Olympic Legacy" by Dr. Michael B. Poliakoff. We also discuss why we should support fighting sports, the views of George Will and George Orwell on combat sports, what might be the ideal form of combat sports, and much more.
