Somehow I missed the 5-on-5 MMA TFC (Team Fighting Championship) video our very own editor Paul posted back in May, and when I came across this Team USA vs. Team Latvia fight earlier my jaw was on the floor. I’d never seen any sort of carnage quite like this inside the ring, and I’m hooked. Back in May we brought you Fight 1 of the TFC Event 3 Barbarians (which didn’t feature Team USA), but the one you see above is the ‘Final Fight of the TFC Event 3 Peak Submission (USA vs Latvia).
I don’t want to spoil the ending of this absolutely batshit crazy fight for you, but I’d just like to say that had the outcome shaken out a little differently I probably would’ve gone full ROCK, FLAG, AND EAGLE! with the headline….
Even after watching this 5-on-5 video twice I’m still shaking my head with bewilderment at how this ‘sport’ exists, how I’ve never heard of it until now, and nobody in that video died. Let’s watch some highlights once more in GIF, shall we?
Complete and utter carnage. If you want more of the 5-on-5 ‘Team Fighting Championship’ MMA then check out this fight from Event 3.
