Great news for that drunk guy who’s always going up to strangers asking them if they “want a piece of this.” Until now, he’s had to wander the streets looking for opponents, but thanks to a new app called Rumblr all he’s got to do now is swipe right.
Rumblr is an app for recreational fighters to find, meet, and fight other brawl enthusiasts nearby.
Rumblr is Tinder for fighting.
They take the hassle out of trying to find a stranger to fight. It’s really easy. You create a profile, you swipe through and choose everyone you want to fight, you get matched up with somebody, you talk some trash, set a time and a location, then it’s on.
Unlike Fight Club, the app actually encourages you to talk about it and to draw a crowd.
We got a chance to have an exclusive interview with the founders to answer some important questions:
1. Is this real? You guys can’t be serious.
Rumblr is 100% real.
2. Often when people create an app it’s because they recognize a problem in their own lives and want to create a solution, were you having trouble finding people to fight?
We can easily find people to fight, however, it’s extremely difficult and inefficient to find like-minded people to fight with. Further, Rumblr allows you to record data on the matter, something that hasn’t been done before. We’re disrupting recreational fighting.
3. Are you going to offer a premium subscription and what will it include?
You can access professional fighters at professional venues with a premium account. More to come on this later.
4. Tesla has been installing charging stations all over the country to meet the demand of their customers, do you have any plans to install makeshift rings or would that take away from the authenticity of your street fights?
With a premium account you can fight at professional venues. With a free account you have to provide your own place to fight. Does Tinder provide a bed?
5. What happens when somebody gets killed?
We’re hands off after the initial matchup. Hopefully, a funeral.
6. Has Kimbo Slice created a profile yet?
We are pursuing communication with Kimbo Slice’s representation in regards to our premium model.
7. Tinder started to penalize people who were swiping right on everybody, any plans to do the same?
Your life, your swipe.
8. In the state of Washington, a mutual combat law actually exists. So this app could possibly be legally used there. Is that where you got the idea?
That’s fortunate, but no. We got the idea from years of struggling to find recreational fighting partners on demand.
9. Even if this is a troll, it could revolutionize the shit talking within the combat industry (Boxing, MMA, etc.). We would pay to watch live shit talking. Any thoughts on this?
Just like Tinder, we believe that the conversation before the interaction is an intimate and private matter.
10. Do you think UFC matchmaker Joe Silva will adopt rumblr for his matchmaking or do you think he’ll continue picking names out of a hat?
I’m sure he already has.
