Russian “MMA” Fight Between Medieval Knights Wearing Swords, Shields, Armor

The latest from Russia’s batshit crazy MMA scene.

The problem with this concept is there’s no way to go “all in,” with heavy swords and stabbing motions, without also making it deadly – so it loses a lot of its cool factor once you realise how limited the combat actually is.

Nonetheless, it’s cool and unusual enough to entertain for a few minutes.
