DESCRIPTION: (from MTV's web site, December 2009) Ever wanted help getting a bully to back off? When it's time to even the odds, it's time for Bully Beatdown. We're bringing together bullies and their victims for the ultimate showdown. Bullies can pick on the small and the weak, but can they handle a trained, professional fighter? When they enter the ring -- fighting for pride and for cash -- will these bullies have what it takes? Or will they get a taste of their own medicine? In each episode of executive producer Mark Burnett's Bully Beatdown, victims reach out to our host, professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Jason "Mayhem" Miller, to enlist his help. After learning why this guy needs a beatdown, Mayhem will "ambush" the bully. Calling him out in front of others, Mayhem will give him a choice: accept the challenge of fighting a MMA fighter or look like a coward. With the fight set, Mayhem makes sure the victims and the bullies get what they deserve. The bull gets the real experience of what it's like to fight someone who is more than capable of fighting back, along with the nervous fear that comes from waiting for the big fight. For the victims, it's the satisfaction of seeing their bully face someone who can make him suffer for his past actions. Fight rules are simple: There are two rounds of fighting with up to $$10,000 at stake for each three-minute round. Round 1 involves grappling and submissions; The Bully starts the round with $$5,000, but will lose $$1,000 every time he "taps out." If at any time the bully manages to submit the MMA fighter, the bully wins an additional $$5,000 bonus. Round 2 is all about kickboxing; the bully will win another $$5,000 if he can survive three minutes of kickboxing with the MMA fighter without getting knocked out. If the bully gets knocked out, quits or the referee stops the fight before the end of the round, he gets nothing. If the bully manages to knock out the MMA fighter, he gets a $$5,000 bonus. Any money deducted from the bully in either Round 1 or Round 2 will go to the victims. At the end of show, Mayhem calculates the winnings and tells the bully how much he has lost and how much is going to his victims. After the fight is over, one would hope that the bully will have learned a valuable lesson and will stop picking on people smaller and weaker than him. Will he change his ways? Or, someday in the future, will he need another Bully Beatdown?
