In Mother Russia, Street Knocks Out You in Street Fights [VIDEO]


(Video courtesy of YouTube/FromRussiaWithLois)

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.

The kicker looks a bit like “Baby Fedor,” but then again all Russians look alike to us.

UFC needs to sign this guy (the kicker)

Wow. I don't know what sound was worse, her screaming before the kick landing, the kick landing flush, or his head slapping the concrete. Owned!

From what I've learned watching tru.tv, this was probably a Russian wedding.

Diaz did *not* have "octagon control" - he simply walked forward at all times hoping to get punched in the face. It enrages me that the MMA ruleset would even *consider* awarding points for that. A man who takes you down or pins you to the fence is controlling the "combat area"; all Diaz did was become the first man I've ever seen get his ass handed to him for 25 minutes while always walking forward. Condit became the first man I've ever seen kick the shit out of someone for 25 while always backing up. (I do give Diaz rounds 1 and 5 by a slim margin.)

The man in black fights the vaunted "Laundry Style". His body moves like wet clothes hanging on a clothesline, blowing in the breeze. His leg kick rises calmly as though the wind were picking up. His body falls as though the clothesline has come loose from its fastening. Watch closely and learn, my child.

had most rounds*
Fletch the V Stretch- February 9, 2012 at 6:57 am
@Humper - Agreed. I hate most rounds for Carlos. Not the 5'th obviously but certainly 2,3,4 I believe.

All Nick had to do was start throwing leg kicks of his own, go for more take downs, etc. ALL Diaz did was box and there is a very slim chance you can outstrike your opponent when all you do is box.

First off, is that guy dead? Man, he hit his head mad hard on the pavement in mother russia. Hope he's ok. Brutal ass kick.
@Fletch-I agree that Nick was the aggressor in the fight, but that is because Condit knew exactly what Nick was going to do. Each time, he countered Nick, by simply jogging away)passive aggression:). He studied Nick's past fights, realized here's a guy who hasn't used any of his ground game recently, and he took advantage of that.
His reach was similar to Diaz's long ass arms, and hence, Diaz as much as I am not a fan of his, hopefully realized in order to fight guys like Condit, you have to use your MMA skills, not just boxing.Now, if Condit was constantly taken down, running away everytime Diaz was in the center of the octagon trying to land punches, that would definitely have made Carlos look like he didn't want any part of Diaz. Carlos was the better man that night. He outscored Diaz every round except possibly the fifth.

Dude would have checked that leg kick nicely. If it had been a leg kick coming.
Fletch the V Stretch- February 9, 2012 at 6:38 am
PS - I will say Nick had octagon control and agression, but that doesn't win you fights if you are getting outstruck the entire fight. Super Close fight. I guess it could have went either way depending on how you viewed rounds 1-2. 3-4 were obviously condits.
Fletch the V Stretch- February 9, 2012 at 6:25 am
That's how I do bitches right there.

On another note: Thanks to whoever it was that informed me of MMAshare.com or whatever. I watched the Diaz/Condit fight and while I will admit that it was obviously not the banger everyone was hoping for, I did not see much discrepancy with the judging. Diaz should have adjusted his game plan way before the 5'th round. While it was evident that Condit's gameplan was completely GREG JACKSON'S doing, it was still a game plan. I mean let's be honest, it would be stupid to stand in front of Diaz with your back to the cage. Only an idiot would do that. That would be like Anderson Silva jumping down to floor to do BJJ with Thales Leites.

While I do enjoy watching Diaz bang/ do not enjoy the lay n prey/ do not enjoy wall n stall, I can't help but state that Condit did exactly what his camp told him to do. Obviously since every MMA fighter on the planet trains at Jackson's, they have fighters who have fought a Diaz before, see Cowboy. Cowboy came into that fight and did exactly what Nate wanted him to and what would give Nate the advantage. Obviously Condit was not trying to fall into that same situation and fight a fight where Nick had all the advantages. I personally think Carlos can and will win if they do rematch. Just my opinion. Based on variety of strikes, significant strikes, strikes landed, I don't see how Diaz could have gotten the nod in the fight.
