Hilarity: M-1 Promotes Medieval MMA

M-1 Global is perhaps best known for Fedor Emelianenko’s ties with the organization, but the Russian M-1 is kind of wacky sometimes. How wacky? How about putting on an exhibition contest between two guys in suits of armor with shields and swords who are still, apparently, doing MMA, kind of. No, you can’t make this up. This is two guys doing Medieval MMA in M-1 Global.

I… Uhh.. What?! I know that there are places where men in suits of armor will spar with each other using medieval weapons and all, but Medieval MMA surely is a new thing, isn’t it? So weird. M-1 Global and Russia have once again blown our minds. GIFs from @Grabakahitman.
