When I first came across this video, I wasn’t too sure what to expect. Then I watched it and it is exactly what you think a combination of mixed martial arts and basketball would be — just weird.
It starts off kind of normal with typical basketball things like dribbling and shooting. Then the MMA part comes in and that’s when the weirdness starts. All basketball rules go out the window and dribbling gets replaced with moves like choke-holds and arm bars.
If there is one thing that is a definite result of this video, it is that MMA-basketball will never become a real sport. But, we’re sure the Croatian sensation Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic will provide us with more strange videos like this in the future. Also, if anyone knows what he is saying at the end of this video, feel free to translate in the comments.
If I had to vote, I would still pay to have SlamBall back. That was the only combination sport that really made any sense.
