Yeah, I Loathe Audience Participation Events Too…

…you know the sort of thing, pantomimes, avant-garde theatre productions, cage-fighting events.

Wait. What?
A night of cage fighting in Greenwich had to shut down early - after members of the crowd started brawling with each other.

I went to an MMA contest once, where members of the gym I trained in were fighting. There was some trouble in the stalls when some local want-to-be bad lads tried to annoy an under 18s MMA club from Liverpool. The issue was solved when the 'bad lads' were given the option of leaving or fighting with the under 18s and then the rest of the audience. They left.

Self policing works well in these events, the amount of training that goes into it, those people who didn't get to fight will be very pissed off and no one in their right mind would want to annoy them.

I did wonder why they didn't just leave them to it...
