Here's The Craziest Russian MMA Fight You'll Ever See: 139-Pound Woman vs. 530-Pound Chain Smoker

Let's go to Russia where weird turned pro over the Thanksgiving break. A 139-pound woman named Darina Madzyuk got into the octagon to face 530-pound heart-attack-waiting-to-happen-but-this-is-Russia-so-screw-it fighter Grigory Chistyakov. Russian outlet says this fight was part of a card promoted as "Our Business," which seems to indicate some sort of outlaw MMA association where crazy is basic business.

If you think the premise of these two fighting is strange, you haven't seen anything. The prefight video of Chistyakov smoking cigs & showing off his one tooth is over-the-top Russian sports at its finest. As for the fight, Darina was pushed around by Grigory until the ref stepped in to separate them. That led to the 139-pound woman dropping her massive opponent and then moving in for some ground and pound that led to a Grigory tap out.

"After this fight, I will start to train actively," Chistyakov after the fight. "It happened. She hit me fine, and I fell. Although she is small ... I lay on her back, but she did not fall, and then I didn't know what to do."

You have to love the heart from Chistyakov. It kept ticking throughout the entire fight. That in itself is a major accomplishment here. I'm thinking Grigory should start going by 'Ticking Timebomb' for his future fights.
