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!

Nice.  They even allow groin strikes.  Not the pussy unified rules.

I really wish headbutts were legal again. In my opinion they are not as dangerous as kicks or knees to a downed opponent, but more importantly, headbutts actually speeds up the ground game quite a bit when there's stalling. 

Royce Gracie was still able to be effective despite fighting under rules which allowed that.

Youre right, the head gear was most effective.

They also wear headgear and little shorty-robes.

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

I'm a fan too... Imagine how many great internet videos we wouldn't have enjoyed, with Russians and Vodka.

Addidas track pants, and drunken street fight spin-kicks. Great stuff.

Russian immigrants make great Americans too.

WiqedWhite -  Is this really headline news Phone Post

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.
