Having the MMA/Boxing event won't incite violence amongest the park guests anymore than a Cherabog show scene inspires Disneyland guests to become satan worshippers. Honestly, this notion of SFMM being filled with gangbangers is so far from the current truth that it's really ridiculous.
From a theme park's standpoint, this is a great idea. MMA has a big following amongest perfectly peaceful fans who'll no doubt flock to this event, and bring their business with them to SFMM.
