I stumbled across a video on YouTube simply labeled "Yakima Fights." My curiosity got the best of me so I clicked on it to see two people at Franklin Park, along with a few friendly bystanders, waiting to see a fight. What threw me off was how cordial they all were, especially the fighters, toward each other. I, honestly, was thinking I'd see a fake, choreographed fight, but what I got instead where real punches thrown to the face and ribs, headlocks and more that I would expect to see in a UFC ring, not in a public setting.
From that video, many others were suggested on the same topic -- non-sanctioned fights out in public in Yakima, and many of the videos included kids as young as middle-school age.
