WTF Was That?!: Five On Five MMA Style Fight League

March 7, 2016


This is a video from a TFC (Team Fighting Championship) bout between Gdynia, Poland and St. Petersburg, Russia. It's pretty brutal. I did not know Team Fighting Championship was a thing, but now I do. It's basically a five-on-five brawl to the near-death. You can team up on people too and really beat the shit out of them. There are a whole bunch of matches to watch on Youtube if this is your thing, which, from the crazy look in your eye and the way you're clenching your fists, I'm guessing it is. "No, I just really have to go to the bathroom." I'm sorry, but that is not the look of somebody who needs to go to the bathroom. I live that look, and that is not it. You're a killer, I can tell.

Keep going for the video, but skip to 3:45 for the fight and bleeding to begin.

Thanks to Closet Nerd, who agrees these fights need way more folding chairs.

    There was like...1 min of actual fighting in that 7min video...good times

  • Hazakabammer

    The event is called barbarians. The fuck did you guys expect?

  • This is so Russian.

  • What the... ?
    Are we living in a post-apocalyptic future?
    How long before The Running Man becomes reality?

  • Wilf Smith

    It's a soft version of gladiatorial combat. There's a reason it recurs as a popular thing during human history - and still carries on today.

    I really don't see what the big deal is with a running man style setup anyway. Once you go down the whole capital punishment or life imprisonment route, you're on distinctly shaky bs rationalisation ground.

    Agree completely. If nothing else Running Man conceptually (not counting that it's a set up from the first) gives someone a chance at life when their life is decided to be thrown away, or worst case scenario makes us face the horror of deciding it's legal to kill and pretending that it's "humane".

  • Billy Rocka

    Thankful for guns? 😂

  • No.

  • Forblat

    The tough part was clicking through the 4 MINUTES OF GARBAGE INTRO

  • Wow, brutal! I mean once one guy goes down the rest is almost inevitable when two or more guys are pounding on one. Wow, Gonna have to watch again.

  • Roark

    The 1970's Movie: The Warriors comes to my mind

  • FearlessFarris

    Is Team Japan Sumo Wrestlers or Ninjas? Or some winning combination thereof?

  • TheQiwiMan

    "Protekt Yo-sev all ze time!"

    *everyone turns around and walks out of the arena*

  • Munihausen

    Best thing I've seen today. Who said dancers are superfluous?

  • Professor Spookypop

    Needs more swords and clubs.

  • Jeedai Infidel

    Meh. I still prefer the team fight from Michael Jackson's Beat It video.

  • Kaizer Chief

    Extreme hobby... durability... and rivalry.

  • sweetooth0
