Fight club draws techies for bloody underground beatdowns

This is what I'm talking about!

"You get to be a superhero for a night," Klimanis said. "We have to go to work every day. We're constantly told to buy things we don't need, and just for a couple hours we have the freedom to do what we want to do." ...There is also a sadomasochistic thread running through underground fight clubs, said Michael Kimmel ... "Real-life fight clubs are the male version of the girls who cut themselves," he said. "All day long these guys think they're the captains of the universe, technical wizards. They're brilliant but empty. They want to feel differently. They want to get hit, they want to feel something real."
