    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Not a dream, not a hoax, not an imaginary story! Systema vs MMA sparring vid

    Well, it doesn't just look like kickboxing.




    As far as what it looks like, well...weird bad tongbeiesque punches, kicks, playground headlocks, and inappropriate spinning around? But the systema guy wasn't just outright murdered, so I suppose that's something.

    Before everybody gets all style huffy. Sparring is sparring. If you saw me yesterday you would believe MMA is innefective against MMA. And I got toweled.

    Sure—they're not trying to kill one another. But Systymie up there sure likes keeping his hands at his side, doing Ministry of Silly Walk kicks, and turning his back on his opponent.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that the Systema guy was the one wearing camo pants? I know, I know. Psychic.

    Actually not too shabby all in all. The first half of the vid seemed roughly 50/50. But in the second half, Mr. Systema was gradually eating more and more solid shots that probably would've put him on his ass in a non-sparring situation. Gotta say though, best video representation of Systema that I've seen.

    Looked like Systemo was trying to kick his partner in the dick a few times.

    I hate when people spar with intensity and equipment mismatches. Why is the MMA guy wearing huge sparring gloves and shin pads?

    Because before the camera was turned on, the Systema guy knew he was gonna get his ass beat and insisted on it.

    Because he is not really an MMA guy?
