KO of the Day: Russian Sambo Fighters Play For Keeps

Fighter Knocked Out by Brutal High Kick – Watch more Funny Videos

It takes about fifty seconds for this Sambo match to get started, but once it gets underway it isn’t long before someone catches the old head kick express bound straight for Concussionville.  Once there he’ll be greeted by Mayor Memory Loss and the fine gentleman from the Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Brainbleeding.  Come, let them take you on a tour of the town, from the Vertigo River to the Migraine district.  Okay, this flight of fancy has officially gone too far, but I could only stare at the computer screen trying to come up with a Yakov Smirnoff Soviet Russia joke for so long before something in me just snapped. 

The point is, they don’t play around in Sambo.  Not only do you get dropped on a hard surface after your brutal head kick KO, you wake up to the sound of polite applause while some guy holds your feet in the air.  I think I’ll stick with grappling tournaments, thanks.

It's obviously not Sambo...

Dear sir,
When you fight, keep your power hand up in a protective position. Especially when you are fighting southpaw and your opponent is orthodox. His power will be coming from that side, as evidenced by your head bouncing off the ground.

"I think I’ll stick with grappling tournaments, thanks."

Rolling around with other blue belts at your local gym isnt a grappling tournament

that doesn't look like Sambo, just a kickboxing match on concrete. Still badass, but isn't Sambo supposed to be like Judo with some striking to set up the grappling?

In Russia, we call kick to head treatment for insomnia...

If only he had circled to his left and kept his RIGHT hand down, he could have taken it from the leg that had the pad on it. Tough break.
