Video Game Creators Are Going To Be Killed By A Real UFC Fighter

Ten of the guys who work on EVE Online, along with some "special guests", are going to fight Iceland's Gunnar "Gunni" Nelson next month. Gunnar is a UFC fighter with twelve wins (and two blackbelts) to his name. They are all going to die.

It might be fair if it was 10 vs 1, but it's not. Each combatant/victim will enter the octagon one at a time, and take on Nelson individually.

The fight is part of EVE's annual fanfest, and before you cast too much doubt on the fight, there's precedent for the madness: in 2011, two devs beat the shit out of each other in the boxing ring at the same event.

Apparently the developers have been training hard, but come on. Look at this guy in action.

If you want to see the blood spilled yourself, and you won't be in Iceland for fanfest, it's being streamed on Twitch.
