NEW YORK — First, apps let users swipe left or right on a mission to find love. Now, that same swiping could set up street fights between adults looking to brawl.
According to the app’s website, users can anonymously user Rumblr to choose who they want to fight. If the other user agrees, the two users will be allowed to chat and arrange a fight time and location — much like the dating app Tinder. They will also be able to broadcast the fight to draw a crowd, according to the app’s creators.
PIX11 News has requested comment from the Manhattan-based app creators and NYPD regarding the legality of this technology.
Once matched, members can explore a user’s in-depth statistics – from age, height and weight to skill level, last fight, MMA specialty, and win/loss record. There will also be a search for “girl-on-girl” fights, as well as group fights, the makers said.
For those who don’t want to get in on the action, there’s an option to explore and attend fights that other users have arranged.
The beta version of Rumblr is set to launch at 5 p.m. Monday. The company will be sending out invites for the first 2,000 entries.
