They have to make do because they don’t have malls to storm and Air Jordans to fight over.

The first rule of 300 is you don’t talk about 300.

An organized fight between two groups. No one got shot, and they mostly all walk away at the end. I wish that would catch on here, versus the driveby’s we have here.

Creepy Indeed

I’ll bet they wouldn’t think twice about gutting any members of the religion of peace if the religion of peace folks pulled any shenanigans in Russian neighborhoods.

Also, soccer hooliganism is really bad over there.

they probably are soccer hooligans on off days.

See the film "Rock and Rolla" for UK hooligans (mostly true story)

Hockey without Ice, sticks and pucks.

I don’t see it as more horrific than boxing or cage fighting (and I am a fan of neither), just skins against shirts instead of one on one.

It’s pretty much abated in the UK, but in Poland it’s really bad, nobody bothers to even go to the games because of it.

It’s a shirts vs skins MMA match. I don’t see the big deal. Maybe it’s because I have too many friends in the SCA and spinoffs, “let’s all get together and pound the crap out of each other” isn’t that foreign an idea.

Add a few rules.
A couple of referees.
A larger than usual cage.
Three, 3 minute rounds....
And you have a new program series for Spike TV.

It looks like a gang initiation in either Little Rock, or Los Angeles that I’ve seen in documentaries.

I don’t know. Seems like this would be more effective than midnight basketball at getting rid of aggression.

I don’t think its particularly creepy. Its a fight. They knew what they were getting into when they signed-up.

It sort of looks like Rugby without the ref or the ball.

Those used to happen here — they were called brawls.

Reminds me of a few keg parties from years gone by -
as for a comparison to MMA, give me a break.

I have seen the same thing. Back in the 1960’s the redneck cowboys and the military men would fight. Same thing...after about two minutes and some real good punching and kicking, the fight would die down and then with all exhausted, the thing would end. Sometimes it was the athletes against the cowboys, sometimes airmen against athletes, airmen against the soldiers, and sometimes just a real donnybrook. No one pulled a knife, no one pulled a gun and most of the time the thing ended with all drinking together.

The way our society is going, I wouldn’t be surprised to see real gladiators on TV before I die. Swords, nets, tridents, the works. (But probably no animal involvement — people would protest that.)

Yep, been there, done that as you have described. Even donated a tooth and a few broken hand bones and a few fat lips..... then “we” all would have a beer or three and call it a night.

You should see what happens when the Royal Navy makes a port call in Austrailia, this was nothing.....

I doubt any animals would sign-up for it anyway, just people.

No weapons, there seemed to be some kind of referee. Compare that to urban youth here.

So what is it? The Russian equivalent of The Society for Creative Anachronism?

Not sure I get it—I thought it was shirts vs skins...but it looked like a free for all for the most part.

Creepy, perhaps. And yet interesting to compare what would happen in this nation if something similar were to happen. When the free west is less from than Socialist Europe and Communist Russia, something is wrong. As long as everyone was there willingly ... let’s call the feds in to regulate it.

Just a few observations. While it would be interesting to know what was being said, the brawl looked to be somewhat organized. The combatants were wearing some form of boxing gloves, shirts were duking it out with other shirts & skins were fighting skins & everybody was fighting everyone else except for a few people who were behaving like referees. Also note, the spectators and cameraman were not set upon.

About the only thing that I would consider over the top is kicks to the head, which the referee types apparently had no problem with.
