Is Ultimate Fighting Art?

Photo via fightlaunch at everystockphoto.

Yesterday, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (“UFC”)  sued New York state in Manhattan federal court, arguing that New York’s ban on live professional mixed martial arts fighting is unconstitutional. The complaint accuses the state of enacting the ban because of the violent message it believes the sport conveys. The UFC alleges that by doing so, NY state violates the free speech clause of the First Amendment.

What do you think, art, martial art, performance art, sport, or bloody sport (or all of the above)?
