Ultimate Fighting or Cage Fighting has become increasing popular in the US with CBS becoming the first of the mainstream networks to broadcast it during prime time. Now kids are facing-off, punching and kicking, in the cage with their parent's blessing.

Videos of kids as young as six fighting each other can be seen on YouTube, and it's no play fighting either. Is this going a bit too far? Although the fighting is claimed to be "controlled," it could lead to problems at school.

Implications - A mother of three young fighters has stated that she thinks the fighting is both wonderful and harmless because the kids are able to create important friendships.
