It wouldn’t be Black Friday without shoppers getting into vicious fights. Two adult men kicked off the ‘Season of Giving’ by giving each other multiple punches to the face. Even kids got in on the action, as teens brawled in a vicious rumble inside a mall! Click to watch!
No, it’s not the latest UFC pay-per-view event. It’s Black Friday, where shoppers turn bloodthirsty for the deep discounts and once-in-a-year deals. With so much pressure to save money, people often lose their tempers — and their minds — during the event. This year was no different as men and children each got into knock-down-drag-out Black Friday brawls.
Yes, there’s nothing like the holiday season to inspire a person to nearly kill their fellow man. That was the scene at the St. Matthews Mall in Louisville, Kentucky on Nov. 26, reports the Daily News, as two shoppers spent their Thanksgiving night locked in a vicious beat-down. The two men — one in a blue shirt, another in grey — grappled and threw each other to the ground before throwing punches. The reason for the fight is currently unknown, but we’ll assume it was over the hottest Star Wars toys.
As a crowd gathered to watch the spectacle, twitter user @DaddyWeaknd caught the action on video. We even see a third man even tries to get in on the fight, launching shots at the man in the blue shirt. Thankfully, a police officer finally stepped in to break everything up before someone was seriously hurt. Why no one bothered to stop the fight in the first place is a good question and one that won’t ever be answered.
But Black Friday fighting isn’t just for grown men. Kids love it too! At a completely different mall, a second video shows a fight between two groups of teenagers. Why are they fighting? It’s not said, but the person taking the video says they’re at the “Florence Mall.” After all, a bruised rib or a black eye will certainly put someone in the Holiday spirit.

The punches in these videos are as brutal as the shots Holly Holm delivered to Ronda Rousey during their championship fight. Perhaps all these amateur-MMA fighters need to take their frustrations out in a gym instead of in a food court.
