One fighter came to touch gloves, the other came to fight – don’t blink

Monday, May 07, 2018

The amount of training and preparation that goes into a single MMA fight, even at the amateur level, is something that most people just don’t understand. It takes years of hard work and dedication, and you have to be at a pretty high-level before you even think about competing in mixed martial arts.

In this video from amateur MMA promotion ‘Arrows Street Fight’, also known as STRELKA, we see someone who most likely did not put in the proper work in order to compete in mixed martial arts, and if he did, he clearly doesn’t get the chance to show it.

Although in MMA, fights can and regularly do end very quickly like what happens here in this video, however, the lackadaisical approach of the losing fighter in the video below just screams that he wasn’t well-prepared and didn’t know what he was getting into.

When the fight begins, his hands are down and he slowly walks towards his opponent to touch gloves but his opponent had other plans in mind – to win the fight and make quick work of his opponent!

Surely, the losing fighter will have learned a lot from this fight, such as to always defend yourself at all times as well as to maybe leaving the glove touching to before or after the fight when it is safe to do so.

Check it out in the video below.

The project “Arrows Street fights“ started in the summer of 2011 in St. Petersburg. Anyone has the opportunity to take part in street battles without rules. For battles allowed only amateurs and semi-professionals. After a thorough analysis of the data and capabilities of the fighters, the jury forms approximately equal in strength pairs. In the battles involved men of different ages and social groups, which gives the project a truly popular and democratic character. [Source: YouTube]
