Since the only Russian I speak is aped from that scene in Rambo when Col. Podovsky was barking orders at Sgt. Yushin, I'm not entirely sure what all those fancy letters mean.

I'm not sure what kind of cockamamie Russian promoter gave birth to community mixed martial arts (MMA), but this is exactly the kind of thing that barters sport for spectacle. I'll still watch because I'm morbid like that, but how do you go home and explain to your boys that you had plenty of back-up and still got KTFO? Thanks to Bloody Elbow for the find. read news >>
