  1. Human history has hundreds of examples of violent sport. There are obvious candidates like boxing, wrestling and martial arts competitions. There are also more deadly instances -- the ancient Romans would gather by the thousands to watch gladiators dispatch one another in bloody bouts of combat. Then there are the sports that pit humans against animals, or animals against each other. From bullfighting to bear baiting, we've invented dozens of ways to instigate violence for our entertainment.
