Is This The Most Violent Sport?

Some people claim that this annual Italian "sporting" event is the most violent on the planet.  I'm not sure about that.  I've seen some UFC matches that have made me physically ill.  But there is some Mixed Martial Arts involved in the Calcio Storico Fiorentino.  As well as some Soccer, Football, Rugby, and general chaos.  Teams represent the 4 quarters of the city and battle it out for 50 minutes trying to score goals.  On the official website they refer to it as a "conflict" instead of a game.  Take a look and let me know what you think in the comments section below.
