‘Crazy Psycho’ takes on volunteer from the crowd
At the conclusion of their latest ‘Strelka championship’ tournament, one of the Russian ‘Arrows Street Fight’ promotion’s biggest stars issued a challenge to fight a volunteer from the crowd, but did he bite off more than he could chew?
The fighter in question hails from Moscow and is known only as ‘Crazy Psycho,’ a fitting moniker for a young man who became one of the promotion’s most popular stars thanks to his fearless intensity in the ring.
In essence, he is ‘Arrows’ equivalent of UFC star Diego Sanchez, and on this night he was all kinds of fired up as he called out to the audience to find a challenger who would be willing to fight him.
In the end a suitable opponent did step forward, and it turned out to be someone who had fought once before for ‘Arrows’, though he didn’t have the same level of experience as ‘Crazy Psycho,’ who had six previous bouts in the promotion that had racked up over three million views on YouTube.
Not intimidated by his rival’s reputation, the blonde-haired challenger in the black rash guard took the fight to ‘Crazy Psycho’ from the opening bell, throwing a couple of early head-kicks that were only partially blocked.
It wasn’t long before the fight hit the floor as Pyscho looked for a takedown and his opponent countered with a guillotine choke attempt but eventually let go under a barrage of ground and pound strikes.
Soon afterward the fighter in the blacktop went for a triangle choke, switched to an armbar and then abandoned that in favor of transitioning on top.
He then began landing ground and pound, including hard knees to the body, and soon afterward the referee brought a halt to the fight after noticing that ‘Crazy Psycho’s’ left eye had suddenly swollen up like a balloon, suggesting a potential orbital fracture.
A doctor quickly checked his eye and decided he could not continue, which did not go down well with the injured party, who got back into his fighting stance, while demanding that the fight is allowed to continue.
”Victory or death!” Psycho yelled at the top of his lungs to hearty laughter from the crowd, but the promoter assured him that his health was more important and ended the fight.
Somehow we don’t think we’ve seen the last of ‘Crazy Pyscho’ in the Arrows ring though!
