Footage of an intergender mixed martial arts fight that took place in Russia is making the rounds on social media and sparking heavy backlash.
Video footage of the bout began to surface on Twitter showing the male contestant, who appears to be wearing eye makeup, stopping the female contestant with strikes in the second round to score a knockout victory, via a series of ground strikes.
On Friday night in Poland, Piotr ‘Mua Boy’ Lisowski took on Ula Siekacz, who is nicknamed ‘ArmPowerGirl’. After securing a half-mount, Lisowski was able to transition into a full mount and unleash a barrage of strikes on his grounded opponent.
The decision to have two intergender fights was slammed by fans, with some describing it as “a festival of embarrassment ” and one saying they felt “dirty watching it”.
“The first-ever clashes between women and men, in which the controversial “Polish Ken” and “Mua Boy” will appear,” Read the billing of the event on the promotion’s official website.” Each of the fights taking place during the MMA-VIP 3 gala carries an incredible load of emotions that you will not find at other freak-fight events. The organizer and originator of this project, Marcin Najman, is a guarantee of creating a spectacle different than anything you’ve seen so far.“
