E:60 – Dada 5000: Backyard Brawling

Dada 5000 explains the phenomenon that is backyard brawling and how he became the main figure  of the backyard brawling universe.  Dada is friends with Kimbo Slice so he has saw the backyard brawling movement grow.  Kimbo was more about building his brand, so seeing the demand, Dada took the lead in promoting the movement.

Dada is living the American Dream, an example of capitalism at its finest.  He saw a demand for backyard brawling, so he started staging events in his mother’s backyard, a classic case of demand needing a supply. Dada should be applauded for his business savvy, but he will probably be judged for what he does.

The fights are brutal and there is no medical coverage for the fighters, so it may seem like Dada is exploiting them.  But no one makes them fight.  Finding fighters doesn’t seem to be the problem.

It may be hard to understand, but Dada is really doing the fighters a service.  Anyone who gets in the ring obviously has some anger or frustration that they need to release.  Even though this seems archaic, it is better this than other possible outlets for their anger.  It’s risky, but anyone who would consider getting in that ring isn’t worried about risk.
