Epic Fighting Championship, a Russia-based organization, produced weird matchups Wednesday.
There was a two vs. one fight, an intergender match, and a pornstar fought later in the show.
It is unclear when Epic FC will return but it is renowned for this kind of nonsense.
A regional MMA event descended into chaos when a small, female strawweight waged war with a 529-pound man.
It was not the only weird, novelty bout as there was also a two vs. one intergender fight, and a bout involving a pornstar and an internet personality.
Combat sports has moments of seriousness, of athletes overcoming brutal moments in high-pressured situations to triumph.
However, it is never truly far from the carnival and Epic Fighting Championship — a Russia-based organization — seemingly threw a load of untrained fighters into a cage to compete in a variety of harebrained rulesets.

There was a 440-pound male called Grigory Chistyakov, who fought women’s strawweight Aleksandra Stepakova.
And there was also a two vs. one intergender fight that saw a 75-year-old man team up with his grandson, who is called “Big Igibob,” go the distance against Yulia Mishko.
But these weren’t even the weirdest moments of the night, which was broadcast in its entirety on YouTube, as pornstar fighter Alexandra Piskun had her shirt ripped off in a low-level, nearly-unwatchable scrap against Gogen Solntsev.
When Piskun’s shirt ripped, a member of her cornering team appeared to storm into the cage and all hell broke loose, with Solntsev even re-entering the arena to try and fight officials.
Epic FC is known for his freak show matches that blur the lines between actual competition and performance theater.
It is unclear when it will return for its next event.
