Despite the obvious insanity going on above, this is not from Russia, but is actually a product of Latvia. What you are seeing is Team Fighting Championship, and in their own words:
Team Fighting Championship (TFC) promotes a new approach to the martial arts where you can enjoy the exciting moments of a group street fighting transferred to the sport grounds.
To put it simply, TFC is what your average meathead calls “Friday night”.
The premise of TFC is to get two squads of five guys each, put them in a big ring, and let them wail on each other until one group is entirely eliminated. According to the website, the only illegal acts are: striking the Adam’s apple, groin attacks, biting, and spitting.
With those boring rules and regulations out of the way, let’s take a look at the 10 craziest videos in Team Fighting Championship history:
10. LPH (Poznan, Poland) vs JungVolk (Moscow, Russia)
The common, unifying theme in most TFC bouts is the opening is pure chaos as everyone rushes to the center of the ring, and then people find a dance partner and low-level, amateur MMA happens. Once one team loses a person, there’s almost no coming back, as the team with the main advantage just gangs up on the other side until everybody gets stomped out. This time, gold confetti rains down after the final beating. Hooray!
9. Barbarians FT (St. Petersburg, Russia) vs HFA (Gdynia, Poland)
This bout is notable just for the one bearded Russian that gets a nasty cut on his browline that bleeds buckets. Dang!
