Ever been to a UFC event and thought “This is fun, but you know what would make it even better? Knights and swords and shit!” Well, leave it to those drunk-ass, crazy Russians to fulfill your dreams. M-1 Global, a Russian MMA organization, has upped the ante on mixed martial arts by sticking fighters in full-body armor and handing them swords. The gimmick — appropriately named “M-1 Medieval” — has proved to be so popular that M-1 is planning an entire event around the concept.

“I liked the fans’ reaction when we did it for the first time in St. Petersburg at M-1 Challenge 50,” Finkelchtein said via e-mail. “They seemed to really like it. They were impressed and supported the knights. So, I thought it was worth continuing. At that time, the knight fight was to fill the pause between the undercard and main card fights. If we find enough fighters to make enough fights, we will have a separate medieval show with its own weight categories, title fights and champions.”

As for us sober Americans, I think Medieval Times needs to do an adults-only late seating and incorporate this into the show.
