Medieval MMA Is a Real Thing
Do you like MMA cage fights? Have you ever wished that you could see a cage fight between two medieval knights?
Do you like MMA cage fights? Have you ever wished that you could see a cage fight between two medieval knights? Well, if you have ever felt that way, you are in luck! Russian company M-1 Global began pitting two knights against each other as a little bit of filler during proper MMA fights last August, but as you could have probably already guessed people loved it and now these fights are being expanded upon.
M-1 Global has created a new company called M-1 Medieval in order to keep up with the growing demand and interest in knight fights. The initial design was just a time filler between undercard and main card fights, but the people loved the idea and really got behind the knights fighting so the idea was further developed. A new venture was created, and now, believe it or not, they are looking into to moving the knight fights from between cards into its own platform.
If enough interest is garnered for the sport and enough fighters want to do it, there will be title fights, weight classes, and full-on medieval fight (k)night shows! I think we are all hoping that these knight fights take off and become a permanent fixture in the fighting community. Currently, the rules are being hashed out and finalised. The idea did start as entertainment between cards so there are some rules considerations to work out, but the future of this fighting sport is exciting. One of the more intriguing opportunities for this ridiculous sport is that fights would not necessarily have to be fought in cage or traditional mat. These fights could be held outdoors and in other appropriately themed locations.
We’d love to see other historical warriors fight against the MMA Knights. Can you imagine a Knight vs a Viking or, a Bunkinjan Ninja?
