A Tinder For Fighting is on the way

While we’ve heard about people being knocked off their feet using Tinder, this takes it to the extreme.

Essentially Fight Club for your phone, Rumblr, a new app based out of New York, works by matching up strangers who want a brawl based on appearances and bios featuring age, height, weight, skill level and wins and losses.

Along with being able to goad one another using the in-app messenger - Rumblr actively encourages users to trash talk with opponents - the pair are able to arrange the details of their brawl.

Once the location is decided upon (deli car park perhaps?), the coordinates are publicly broadcast so other users can come down and watch the willing combatants beat one another to a bloody pulp. And should a user want to sensibly back out? They’ll have to click the ‘Pussy Out’ button.

Speaking to New York Daily News, its creators said the app was “100 per cent serious”, adding that they are working directly with the iOS store to thrash out any legal issues preventing its approval ahead of a planned 9 November release, when it will also be joined by female version RumblrHER.

Worryingly, over 78,000 people have already signed up for beta access and most of them probably wear caps backwards.

There's gonna be a bro-down.
