Growing up, I always laughed at douchebags who would pick a fight with a much smaller guy, only to learn the hard way that they shouldn’t have. I imagine a few of Anderson Silva’s tormenters experienced a bit of this poetic justice in the 80s for making fun of his Kid N’ Play hairdo and knockoff Reebok Pumps.
We aren’t sure of the backstory of this brief Russian street fight, or whether it was actually a fight or just two barefooted broskis sparring after a few vodkas on a Saturday afternoon, but the end result is clear: Igor gets KTFO. I’ve horsed around with my friends in the backyard, but we typically don’t throw hard spinning back kicks at each other’s faces, but then again Russians like to play a bit differently. Hell, they invented a game where you put a bullet in a pistol, spin the chamber and take your chances as you point the barrel to your temple and pull the trigger. Here we call that suicide.
