Crazy Russian gets head butt KO in Sambo


Combat Sambo was developed for the Russian military, and resembles mixed martial arts. Unlike sport Sambo which prohibits chokes, various joint locks, and strikes, Combat Sambo allows striking chokes, and wide variety of arm and leg locks. Fighters wear jackets as in sport sambo, plus shin, hand, and head protection.

Head butts are among the prohibited techniques, but that did not stop this competitor in a recent competition in Russia.

Crazy Russians.

Thanks to Stephen Koepfer for the find!

Great question. These kind of blog entries get huge views. But they are not appropriate as the sole or even as a major focus. So we do one every week or two and leave it at that. This one got the second most views of any piece yesterday.

Head butts are legal in combat sambo. That's why the crowd applauded and referee gave him the point. Nice research there UG blog.
