Modern Day Gladiators?

Another interesting exchange from the letters page last week, regarding the UFC event held in Sydney last week.
Didn't the Romans invent such fighting against lions? And we know what happened to them. Charlotte Drake-Brockman, Murrurundi

Yes, Charlotte Drake-Brockman (Letters, February 25), we all know what happened to the Romans. They ruled over one of the largest empires in history, bringing previously unheard-of technological advances and stability to much of the northern hemisphere, at a time when most human lifetimes were brutal and short. And they did it for more than 500 years. Whatever point you are trying to make is lost on me, but you may as well just compare UFC fans to Hitler and be done with it. Simon Cutting, Manly
