    So what, use a piece of fishing line to secure your hand in the appropriate position and take a nap? If no one is there to judge this "tournament/contest?" how are the results valid. This has to be the stupidest marketing ploy I have ever seen. Sony what the f are you thinking...

    Its actually not that bad of a contest. Its like saying sailing into an ocean that looks flat...for the first time is a bad idea. I dont see anyone else holding contest like this.

    nice n creative gl to all contenders

    get off this site and go do something that makes you happy before you hurt someone.
    i think this was just done for fun. not really a bare knuckle type tournament.
  11. If you check the official rules, you cannot suspend your arm like you suggested, and you must be awake the whole time. They have judges check the webcam footage, as well
