A new show is coming out that enables co-workers to duke it out with boxing gloves

A new show is coming out that enables co-workers to duke it out with boxing gloves

How much would we truly know about our universe if we didn't want to club our co-workers over the head with inanimate objects? When I did that whole corporate thing before I started MiddleEasy, there wasn't a day that went by that I didn't want to challenge my art director to an MMA match -- or any combat sports that involved me shoving my fist in his face. Now that I'm over that entire world, I still want to give him an open-palmed strike to the face followed up by a double-leg takedown. In fact I'm sure many of you wish you could give your co-workers an elbow (or fifty) directly to the jaw.

The Esquire Network wants to make your dreams come true with their new show 'White Collar Brawlers' which will air on November 19th. Yeah, I had no idea the Esquire Network had a channel either. Check out the trailer of their show.

Zeus @MiddleEasy

Zeus is represented by Galactus in his avatar image because he has an immature obsession with Marvel when they went all sci-fi back in the mid 80s. I'm the creator of MiddleEasy and Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Just kidding about the Nickelodeon stuff, but that would be really cool.

This has been going on in every major financial city in the world since the 90's. Even saw a "white collar" MMA match being promoted in Hong Kong last year.

In Japan they have an event called "Oyaji Fight," and it's a bunch of older guys who box. You don't need experience but it helps.

I think the UFC or Bellator should do this. They should put on a "Masters Tournament," and get guys like the Shamrocks, Liddell, Coleman, etc. out of retirement to fight. Basically make it anyone over 38 who is officially retired and set an open weight limit. I'd pay to watch it, that would be a lot of fun!!!!

Esquire Killed G4 to take over that channel and then didn't. So they made a bunch of people lose their jobs for no reason.

That's awesome, now all it needs is a tournament style championship. I don't care if it's between the winners or just through the same company, make it happen.
