    Hey, thanks for the pics, Igor!!

    Guys, for those who don't know him, I believe Igor is either Fedor's manager or PR rep. He's just trying to spread awareness about MMA in Russia. He actually called me about a week or so ago and we discussed this at length.

    Russia is a developing market for MMA, but the sport is absolutely blowing up there.

    Igor, when you get my package, I expect some training pictures from the M-1 camp with your fighters wearing Rupture Fightwear :). I also sent some of the Rupture/Bullshido clothing, so this board will be well represented.

    How is Fedor doing? Please tell him thank you for the autographed photo, it is framed and hanging on my wall :).

    Spasiba,

    Nick

    Cool pics!

    I expect Russia and Eastern Europe to dominate MMA in virtually all weightclasses in the years to come due to their great wrestling, judo, boxing, sambo and kickboxing pedigrees.

    We hope for it, despite of crisis. If the information on a life and development MMA in Russia will be necessary, address. Is always glad to help!

    I hope for the continued growth of the sport in Russia too. I believe your fighters might very well be the future of our sport.

    Myself I'm training with John Olav Einemo here in Norway so I'm fortunate enough to have one of the top technical HW's as my sparring partner and instructor.

    But any info on the Russian/Eastern European MMA scene is appreciated. For us Western Euros it's really hard to access the Cyrillic language sites.

    I thought pankration rules were supposed to be safer/more restrictive than MMA rules to encourage amateur fighting? (I also thought that Combat Sambo already serves this role of safe fighter development in russia). I saw those guys punching each other in the face, which I definitely thought was a no-no in modern pankration.

    Cool video, quick question though;

    Are there no leg/ankle locks allowed in the competition?
