The Gladiators of Ancient Rome sometimes, but not always, fought to the death for the amusement of the crowd. If a Gladiator fought well he could appeal for mercy in the hope that his performance had earned him a reprieve.
NOT SO IN THE RED STREETS, BLUE MATS WORLD OF MMA!
Modern Mixed Martial Arts or MMA offers no way to escape the shame of defeat. It ends with you literally tapping the mat; conceding the match.

Maybe you’ve had some formal training or maybe you learned to fight in back alleys or streets, it doesn’t matter. You all share the same dream, to make it to the Big Time, fighting in opulent octagons in the fanciest hotels and convention centers. But you’ve got a long way to go before that happens as you have to pay your dues.
In Red Streets, Blue Mats you will find:
Rules for 20 different fighting styles from Aikido to Wrestling and everything in between.
A full color octagon for your fighters to fight on.
24 pre-generated Non-Player Martial Artists, reflecting a variety of styles and skill.
A complete campaign, with little book keeping that allows you to fight your way from the Fringes of the MMA world to the Prime Locales of the Big Time.
