A mixed MMA fight in Russia got even crazier when a man jumped into the cage mid-fight to smash things up.
A bizarre mixed MMA fight descended into chaos when a fan jumped into the cage to try and break up the fight.
The sun reports that the match in Russia was between female blogger Sasha Mamaha, 26, and porn-themed performance artist Alexander Pistoletov, 50.
It was hosted by Epic Fighting Championships and was total chaos from start to finish. Most amazingly, during the third round, a crowd member jumped into the cage while Mamaha was on the ground with Pistoletov trying for a submission.
The crazed fan attempted to separate the pair with a flying kick – only for the referee to pull it off.
According to bloody elbow, the fan was actually a member of Mamaha’s entourage.
Incredibly, the unprecedented fight then resumed.
The referee reset the fighters to the floor with Pistoletov – who is also a singer and appears in music videos without clothes – soon getting the submission stoppage.
But in another shocking turn, after Mamaha protested the result, the organizers decided to restart the fight with an extra round.
Mamaha then finished the fight and was even declared the winner on points despite having tapped out earlier in the third round.
The wild event also had a two-on-two women’s tag team MMA bout, resembling a WWE tag team match.
This fight in Russia comes after a Polish mixed fight last year which saw fighter Ula Siekacz beaten by Piotr ‘Mua Boy’ Lisowski, and was widely criticized.
The International Mixed Martial Arts Federation said at the time: “Media coverage brought our attention to an intersex MMA fight that took place in Poland over the weekend.
“Although neither the promoter nor the competitors have any association with the IMMAF, as the international governing body for amateur mixed martial arts, I feel it is important that I state our position.
“IMMAF categorically disagrees with this intentionally scandalous form of entertainment, which does not represent the sport of MMA or its values and puts women at risk.
“It is unacceptable for women and men to compete in combat sports, primarily for reasons of safety but also fair play, and we in no way condone that.”
