Bully Beatdown, hosted by Strikeforce fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller, is returning for a third season to the popular cable channel. The season premier for successful the show is scheduled to air Thursday night at 11 p.m. ET/10 p.m. CT.
After two seasons of shows, “Mayhem” and company will bring a new line of bullies to put in check in order to defend the honor of those picked on, shoved around, and ridiculed.
This season will have a stellar cast of MMA personalities to assist Miller in setting bullies straight. Fighters such as Jeremy Horn, Eddie Alvarez, Michelle “The Karate Hottie” Waterson, Bobby Green, and Tyron Woodley will be on call to pound bullies into submission for their terrorizing ways.
“Big” John McCarthy will be in his familiar role of enforcer, refereeing the action throughout the duration of the season. In addition, Kathleen Tesori will have the ring girl responsibilities between rounds of bullies playing victims.
The premiss of the show is unique, to say the least. Bullies are called out by Miller for picking on innocent victims, and offered a challenge. The bullies are asked to fight an MMA fighter or look like scared little pansy by refusing the challenge. After accepting the fight, the bullies are put through two rounds in an effort to win $10,000.
The first round consists of grappling and submissions, and the bullies are forced to give up $1,000 for every time they submit to the MMA fighter. The most a bully can lose in the round is $5,000. If at any time the bully manages to submit the MMA fighter, they will win an additional $5,000.
The second round concentrates on kickboxing, and bullies will be asked to last five minutes against the MMA fighter. If they last the round, the bully will win $5,000, but if “Big” John stops the fight, they get nothing. If the bully is able to knockout the MMA fighter, they walk away with an extra $5,000.
Not only will the victims get to enjoy watching their bullies get pounded, but they collect every dollar amount the bullies get deducted through both rounds.
At the end of the show, “Mayhem” will approach the bully and ask them if they’ve learned their lesson. Hopefully, for the bully’s sake, they’ll stop picking on the little guy after experiencing Bully Beatdown.
