Two guys throwing punches at a bar, two girls puling hair, underground fighting, blood squirting out, teeth flying from a persons' mouth. I just don't understand why people find this entertaining.
My uncle was a professional boxer and he lost his hearing. I never understood why he fought. My father use to get into a lot of physical fights when he was young all the way into his twenties. I always thought it was immature (he had anger issues, but that is besides the point).
I was watching a documentary on underground fighting and it just made me think why people enjoy watching people, or---in some cases---animals, beat each other.
I find in barbaric, so I am looking for a new perspective.
Why do people like to watch people fight as a form of entertainment?

Because it is entertaining. Watching a battle of will's to see which one is strongest. It is the most ultimate form of competition. There are differences between being entertained, and blood lust though.
For me personally, I love watching fights. MMA fights are my favorite, because they are fair and they have a referee. Underground fight clubs where people just beat each other senseless get very hard for me to watch. There comes a point in which is person is out of the fight, and for the other party to continue to beat on them is inhumane. And I'd never want to watch a fight to the death. Unless George Soros or someone who deserved it was getting beat to death.
