After announcing earlier this year that it would incorporate a new movie-themed philanthropy event, the Chapman Panhellenic Council revealed today that the event would be inspired by the 1988 film “Bloodsport” and will feature one-on-one fights to the death.

Each fight will take place in an octagon set up in the Hutton Sports Center, with the winner choosing the charity for donations.

“We’re all huge ‘Bloodsport’ fans and we thought it would be cool to have some friendly competition between each sororities,” said a Panhellenic representative. “We’d received suggestions that people would like more sport-based events and this felt like it would be perfect.”

A similar event took place at California State University, Fullerton last month, with the winner donating proceeds to The Critter Connection, a charity that saves abandoned and neglected guinea pigs.
