Street fight in Russia
By - pupsikandr
I wonder how long that went on for, were there rounds and how did they know what side won?
You count the dead bodies
Only true count is empty vodka bottles.
That's more a measurement of time than anything else.
This is Russia, they only count one out of ten dead bodies.
Oh we have those in Poland, usually one side will be overwhelmed and either retreat or end up in fetal positions on the ground trying to protect their heads from kicks or punches, depending on the rules.
edit: example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HtnV2M1pAc
Sign me up for a league where when a person falls on the ground, they do not continue to get kicked repeatedly in the head
Seriously. There’s nothing sporting about that.
> end up in fetal positions on the ground trying to protect their heads from kicks or punches
What would be the point of allowing people to brutally kick the heads of guys who are already totally down? What's even the reasoning there? Do they keep it going until everyone is "disabled" entirely? Is there a way to surrender to make the beating stop?
Not sure what the point is, this seems to be the "culture" of those events, someone started doing this at some point and the other side started doing this in return and now its just how it is. Surprisingly (sadly?) there is very few reports of this resulting in death or disability.
Most people are happy that they found a way to vent their aggression on each other instead of on the rest of society.
What I find interesting is that they are ultra patriotic and like to consider themselves as warriors, so if there was ever a war they would probably be hailed as heroes due to their fearlessness and will to fight for Poland. They don't have the discipline to join the military though so there just isn't much room for them in a normal peaceful society.
I don't think someone understands how wars are fought now... Actually were wars ever fought without weapons?
It's more about the complete disregard for personal safety or fear of harm.
Now that's fucked up. At least the other guys were basically just boxing. With gloves.
My interest in participating in that is literally 0.
I think you can say the user name checks out here
These are typically a last-team-standing kind of a deal, where you are no longer considered a combatant after hitting the ground (voluntarily or otherwise).
No rounds. It's over in less than 5 minutes that's for sure.
Technically it’s a *grass fight
First thing I thought.
It’s a field!
Looks like a CTE Convention
literature debate club?
dead poets society
Algonquin Pound Table
Man those Dostoevsky thematic arguments are rough as *fuck*.
Reenacting The Outsiders.
More like the illiterate debate club
This is what i expected from the Josh fight. Man, that was a let down.
what ever happened with that?
edit: oh, boring, good natured fun... more "family picnic" than even intramural sports
And a kid won
This is why the Bruce's need to have a meet up.
Kid would be slush by then
Any of the actual combative Josh's know better than to show up to an event like that. It's either a gathering of naive Josh's, like this one turned out to be, or it's a massacre by one, less naive Josh that stands over a pile of dead bodies, only to be assassinated by a semi-seasoned Josh from a distance.
Most of us operate from the shadows. In the end, there can be none. I've said too much.
Death to _all_ the Josh's.
Seeking participants for a large-scale concussion after-effects study.
How long does it take to get from this to the purge?
Idk but the asshole wearing headgear while throwing blindly is subtly escalating it there lol
I mean that’s a smart asshole, needs technique, but still smart to headgear
Obviously it’s just kinda a dick move to wear a helmet while whaling on people without it lol
Lol agree but an even more dick move? Wrap your hands in tape and go bare knuckle lol even the roided beefcakes won’t stand to a decent technique fist bump to the head
you do way more damage with boxing gloves. You will fuck up your hands bareknuckling skulls.
One of the reasons bare knuckle boxing is safer than boxing
Bare knuckle boxing is only safer than boxing in that bare knuckle is so brutal that fights will get stopped early. Boxing is more dangerous only due to the padded blows that allow a fight to last longer than it should.
That’s why I said padded bare knuckles / hand wraps...this does more damage than a padded punch. You don’t have to believe me, but there have been studies proving the impact of bare knuckle over boxing gloves
They also talked in the article how in bare knuckle boxing fighters know they can break their hands when striking. Skulls are thick and will do damage to your hands. Body blows are the preferred strikes for bare knuckle whereas you have the padding to not damage your hands with headshots in boxing.
I guess adding padding/wraps to bare knuckles would probably do the most damage of both
Agree. Not worth busting up your knuckles and wrists. But you’re right about body shots. Imagine one of these guys just prowling and launch liver shots to the body, bare knuckle/wrapped. Fall like dominoes then just move to the next one lol
Ok maybe put a helmet on and targeted liver shots, then invincible
Really that boxing headgear is mostly to prevent cuts, it doesn’t do a lot to take the edge off big punches and it reduces your field of vision. It can also get bumped around and cover your eyes even more. I can see why most wouldn’t want one.
Agree prevents cuts, and lessens the blows of unsuspecting sucker punches and back of the head
Looks theraputic to me. Could be an Olympic sport. Italians have a similar sport, dating back to the medieval period, and likely with more injuries.
Looks like a good way to let off steam.
I bet they all sit down together after and have a few pints... of vodka
They get fuuuuuuucked up. More like the hospital. Look it up. It's fucking nuts.
I mean... People all around the world used to do this, but with spears, it's nothing new.
All it takes is 1 word authorizing a purge, from the government. Russia has a long history of those so although there would be a lot of good people opposed to such things, I have no doubt there would also be plenty that would immediately choose to participate... and they would start with those that opposed it.
"Street fight"....everyone shows up prepped with gloves.
And they're fighting on the grass
And I bet not everyone knew everyone’s pronoun either. That’s the real problem.
loaded gloves FTFY
That's not a street, my dude.
This is a modern rendition of an age-old tradition of "stenka na stenku", which translates kinda close to "clash of walls". Basically, it is a no-ill-will, organized mass fight between two crowds of equal size for the prize of bragging rights; typically between young men of neighboring communities (although, the teams can be drafted through other means).
If you pause at 0.04 secs guy closest to the camera looks like Khabib. That'll be a no from me on that fight.
im pretty sure that heavier guys than him have no problems with dealing with him
what's that to do with hermit?
Ladies and gentlemen, I present you the Sergei fight. Last man standing gets to keep the name.
There's something weirdly wholesome about all this.
Can we get members of Congress to do this? Like once a year, make it a televised event, red shirts vs. blue shirts duking it out on the House floor.
Congress vs voters. Even numbers. You have to fight, to get on the ballot.

Have you seen the [RTJ music video for "Nobody Speak"](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUC2EQvdzmY) that uses pretty much that premise? It's actually super well done in my opinion.
Russia took Boxing Day literally.
That's not a street fight. That's an organized event.
> street fight
> shows a field with grass
Typical russian street, uh uh
I'm seriously gonna need some context here. Anyone know what's going on? A festival for a giant group boxing match? Winner gets crowned something?
There was an indepence day in Russia recently and that's a part of a festival dedicated to russian culture that took place that day. Its a battle 100 vs 100 and the winner team got nothing besides hugs from other team AFAIK.
It makes me happy to see them wear protection, i have watched several videos where they don't use anything
"I'll trade you some brain damage for some brain damage"
No wonder trump supporters are so pro-russia
Russian Dzhosh (Josh) Fight!
There can be only Джош!
And this is why men don’t live as long as women.
Yep, I am in no way surprised.
it's 2021 already, dude
In the U.S., some “patriot” would most definitely take a pistol out and kill someone during this
Absolutely. Especially if a brown person/team started winning.
Or someone openly gay accidentally brushing against them
You talk bad about this but we need this. We have 2 choices. We can all smoke a joint and fix our problems or we can duke it out
Have fun with your crushed windpipes. I'll be over there ---> on the weed train.
Nope I’m on the sideline smoking weed watching everyone else fight
NGL, this looks kinda fun? They have boxing gloves on, won't leave too much damage, right? If it is all agreed upon beforehand, why not. I'd join. I'd get my ass beat, but still.
Boxing gloves are padded so they result in fewer cuts to the opponents head and obviously less damage to the boxers hand. But because of their weight, they produce more concussions. So the damage is a mixed bag. It’s counterintuitive, but ultimately boxing gloves make fighting more dangerous, not less.
>boxing gloves make fighting more dangerous
I'm skeptical of this comment.
Gloves are more hand protection than head protection. Throwing a hook without gloves on is pretty likely to break your hand of you dont land it right. The only reason modern boxing is safer than pre-gloves pugilism is because of the other rules to protect hurt fighters (like making sure they are okay when they get up)
Look at sports that are contact with near-zero gear (wrestling, rugby) compared to football (US). The concussion argument is very real. I would assume damaging/feeling more impact on your hands makes people less likely to continue throwing blind haymakers like one of the dudes in the video. It's people who think they aren't as likely to be injured engaging in more risk because of it.
Not much (sanctioned) face punching in wrestling though
It's not a new argument. I don't know who's right, but it makes sense - gloves allow the wearer to put a ton of force into their opponent's skull without breaking their hand. They might not break skin but a concussion isn't great news either.
Your skepticism is misplaced.
Boxing gloves were never about making the hits less dangerous for the person getting hit. They protect the wearer's hands (punching people in the head tends to wreck hands quickly).
They actually result in more damage to head of the one getting hit, due to the impact being 'deepened' and making concussions and other internal trauma mote common.
what about the headgear?
Head gear does help the wearer somewhat. The impact force is partially slowed and spread out *before* it contacts the wearer.
Depends. A lucky shot to the jaw might knock someone out.
Might lose a few teeth, or wind up with a broken nose.
Or maybe nothing but a few bruises.
If you don't consider concussions, lost teeth, broken facial muscles, separated ocular nerve (leading to blindness) or any other host of injuries "too much damage," then... yeahhh, sure kid.
Boxers experience injuries all the way up to death. You realise they fight with gloves too, right? And that’s one on one, not this crazy shit.
I grew up in Russia, and we had similar fights in the 90s - school vs. school and class vs. class. It was a bit more chaotic and without boxing gloves, of course.
What you see on this video - 2 "patriotic clubs" are clashing. The government usually sponsors those, and their meatheads are used against political opposition. The winner will get more funding the following year.

All of the worst autocratic regimes figure out that bands of street thugs are an invaluable tool for invoking fear in the general population while maintaining plausible deniability. It's why groups like the Proud Boys should be taken seriously as threats and fully prosecuted as soon as they step out of line, which they always do almost immediately.
Once an autocratic ruler can shelter these violent groups from real accountability, he's very close to seizing complete control. It's a major element of many right wing coups historically.
I swear to God that fuckin place gets weirder every day
song is Аким Апачев - Лето и Арбалеты [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ido0BFRO9fY](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ido0BFRO9fY)
We love Russians, proper men
Not primitive at all.. and we wonder why aliens won't come chill with us
honestly I doubt theres a lot we could do to impress interstellar travellers
Better than straight up war
Is this the Russian Josh fight?
Great fucking way to die by getting popped in the back of the head by a haymaker with no warning.
If this was in the US they would all have guns
I would attend one of these in a heartbeat
There was no street.
In Russia everywhere is street.
Some of them had headgear on, that's not fair!
More like a field fight
Meh. Reminds me of punk mosh pits in the ‘90s.
I hope they were wearing protection.
Who are the teams?
How the next US President will be chosen.
Or so it seems.
Anybody know the song name that’s playing
Man it started off pretty tame but didn't take long
Holy shit! Y'all crazy as shit, that's for sure
holy fk lol id love to join in one of those
I wouldn’t expect anything less from Russia
Now *that* is a Donnybrook if I’ve ever seen one
The UFC in the year 2050.
Does anyone know the song name?
Preview of cobra Kai season 4
Grass fight in Russia
You mean just a normal Tuesday in Russia, right?
We need this in the US badly
Why? What was the reason for this ?
At least they wore gloves?
Part of me wants to do this but the other half knows somebody is gonna hit me and I'm gonna cry.
That's not a street fight. It's a field battle.
Ah yes, looks like highschool in Texas.
Not even on the street tho.
You sure that’s not Holland? Cause I see a lot of windmills.
This needs to happen in Compton and Chicago just settle it w the gloves the old fashioned way 🥊
"street fight" ok nerd
I would love to see the UFC do a 3v3 match
Josh fight Level 2
Reminds me of the time when some friends got together, did a ton of coke until we couldn't feel our faces...and I hear, "Hey, punch me"
Comrade...vere ees street?? I must break you.
Wrong. That’s a field fight.
There used to be a MMA style fight like this but it was only 5v5. It was basically last man standing. No rounds.
Is this the "Ivan fight" everyone fights for the right to be the one real "Ivan"?
Reminds me of the 80s royal rumble
I feel like the Israelis and Palestinians need to do this to let off some steam.
It's just the YouTubers VS TikTok
In Russia, street fight you.
The Great Outdoor Fight
You know there’s that ONE guy actually going for knockouts in there.
im sorry but i had to downvote. that is definitely not a street fight. that is a field fight.
Josh fight: electric boogaloo
Some came with head gear...lol .. the smart ones . I'd line my gloves with lead. I do it for Mother Russia!!
Communism. You get hit, we all get hit.
Historians: we will never know what ancient melee battles were like.
#CTE for you and you and you and you....
Did they all shower together afterwards?
Honestly, that looks fun
thats hardly a street fight...looks more like a family reunion
How many of them were named josh?
Isn't this how you get omni-mans race?
Russian internet trolls?
Group boxing ….. yea that’s dumb
This looks like a lot of fun.
