Eddie Alvarez has some strong opinions on the 'knockout game,' and you better listen...

Unless your name is 'The Goat' Nick Thompson, then you simply can't take claim for having the ability to knock out Eddie Alvarez. Ah, The Goat. Wish that guy would come back to MMA so he can remind the MMA world why he's the greatest fight predictor in human history. Nick Thompson actually TKOd Eddie Alvarez to win the Bodog welterweight championship, a coveted award that he probably sold on eBay last year. Now that I brought up a fight from six years ago I would be a tease if I didn't link you to the entire bout.

There's a new fad being played by 'the kids' and it's called the 'knockout game' where a person picks a pedestrian on the street and tries their hardest to deliver an unsolicited one-punch KO directly to their skull. Yeah, when I was a kid I played Magic The Gathering -- kids these days.

If you search on YouTube I'm sure you will find a superfluous amount of highly disturbing videos that we won't publish here on MiddleEasy. However we do want to show you this video of Eddie Alvarez discussing why it's supremely stupid to participate in this game. Props to Gonzo for the +100 news tip.

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.

How the fuck would that help her in the knockout game? The teens don't announce who they're going to hit or give any sign. You're just walking down the street and suddenly you get punched unconcious with no warning. By the time she woke up who is she going to shoot at? And if she wants to shoot someone she THINKS might want to knock her out, then she's the one who'll be going to jail.

Poor grammar aside Eddie couldn't be more right on. I am stunned this shit is actually going on. People are dying because kids are insecure cowardly asshole-idiots.
