By 2020, the popularity of Wrestling and UFC lead to the rise of several new, even more brutal, combat-entertainment sports. The most popular of all these "Combatainment" sports was Ultimate Hand-To-Hand (UHTH to fans). Based on various martial arts, from the African martial art Testa to Muay Thai, UHTH was a brutal, bloody fight-to-the-finish, though the intention was for the fight to be stopped before serious damage could be inflicted, in the early years of the sport, many fighters were severely hurt (one fighter actually died from a severe concussion while being transported to a hospital) the extreme violence and frequent hospitalisations of fighters led to many calls for UHTH to be banned.
UHTH: A Warrior's Dance.
Originally created by Lawrence Okubo, a South African refugee (as his mother was white, the All-Africa Party considered him to be unclean and unworthy of existence) who lived in London, UHTH actually started out as a mixed martial art, Okubo's students, many of whom were either white or mixed-race South African immigrants, earned money by fighting in arenas and bars all over Britain, the hypnotic, devastating fighting style became very popular among young men, and UHTH clubs sprung up all over Britain. An American wrestling promoter "Jacky Hawke" saw a UHTH fight at a bar in Nottingham, and, after some negotiations, the first ever UHTH fighting tournament was announced.
