Back in November, we introduced you to Beercup, a hybrid of mixed martial arts and soccer that mostly amounted to a bunch of weird dudes who wanted to punch each other using “soccer” as a reason to rent a local gym and throw down.

The next attempt at hybrid sports comes from MMA legend Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic and combines two of the things we love most in the world: MMA guys doing something other than MMA, and basketball players fighting. It’s MMA basketball, and while there don’t appear to be a lot of rules, it DOES involve lay-ups and tons of choking. So it’s either ‘MMA basketball’ or Pau Gasol visited Croatia.
