Watch a Professional Knight Get His Metal-Plated Ass Handed to Him

Call me a coward, but getting bashed in the face by a scary Russian dude with a massive shield is not my idea of a good sporting time.

Sure, being covered by armor would appear to make professional knight fighting “safer” or at least “less likely to result in an immediate fatality.” But because your face is covered, how is anyone—least of all the referee—supposed to know if you’re already unconscious?


I prefer my brain damage in the form of drugs and alcohol, thank you very much. It’s the American way.
