Though often regarded as instinct, fighting is actually a skill acquired in the womb, where all babies must defeat their evil selves in order to be born. Further prenatal training with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a general-admission ticket to Reno's Downtown Showdown, sponsored by Fight Republic (a $25 value). The event takes place on Friday, July 8, at 7:30 p.m. in the convention center at Harrah's Reno.

Reno's Downtown Showdown showcases the butt-kicking skills of up-and-coming mixed martial artists, headlined by a match between Sean Shamrock, son of the notorious "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock, and Northern California-native Sam Gipson. Their epic encounter is preceded by nine other brawls, filled with scrappy grappling, supercharged striking, and awkward walking around in circles while staring into each other's eyes. After the refereed throwdowns cease, match-goers 21 and older can exchange their Fight Republic tickets for free admission to the casino’s Sapphire Lounge to mingle with other fighting enthusiasts for postmatch festivities. Early-arriving attendees get their pick of general-admission seats, which start 10 rows behind both the north and south ends of the cage, in the 14,000-square-foot convention center.
