Bully Beatdown is an American reality television series created by Mark Burnett which airs on MTV. In each episode, show host Jason “Mayhem” Miller challenges bullies to fight against a professional mixed martial artist for a chance to win $10,000. The money they get depends on their performance against their opponent, with any money they don’t win going to the bully’s victims. Mayhem shows a tape victims have sent to him asking for help with a bully. This was followed by Mayhem meeting with the victims and briefly discussing their problems. Mayhem and the victims would then confront the bully, and Mayhem would offer the bully $10,000 to fight a professional MMA fighter. In all of the episodes that aired, the bully accepted. The next segment consisted of Mayhem bringing the bully into his gym to see how the bully fights in order to help him determine who to put in the cage against him. During this segment, Mayhem introduced the bullies to their corner man, and usually discussed the fight with the bullies a little. This segment would end with the victims meeting the fighter who would be fighting their bully and some clips of the bully preparing in the locker room. The next segment began with Mayhem standing in the ring with the victims and introducing them to the crowd. After a brief introduction, the bully would then be brought out to boos from the crowd. Mayhem would then let the bullies and victims have a few last words before bringing out the fighter.
Round 1 is a 3 minute grappling only round. The bully starts the round with $5,000 but loses $1,000 every time he is forced to tap out. The next segment began with an explanation of the rules for Round 2. Round 2 is a 3 minute kickboxing round. The bully wins $5,000 if they can survive the entire 3 minutes, but does not get any money if he quits or gets KO’d or the referee stops the fight. After the round ends, Mayhem deals out the money, and asks the bully if there is anything they want to say to their victim(s)now that the fight is over, which is always an apology.
