Can someone explain to me what this is?
What? You werent there at the 1st pancakes?
Basically, it's MMA.
A mixture of wrestling and boxing, where the only rules were no eye-gouging and no biting. And they were naked.
Been watching since the first one.
Pankration is an ancient Greek Olympic sport that combined wrestling and boxing. There were, however, no hits allowed while on the ground.
Rationing of pancakes by socialist governments.
I've watched all the ppvs
There's a gay joke in there somewhere.
I guess the UFC could build their female fan base if fighters were naked. I think they should test it out with Rousey's bout first though.
Pankration was awesome!!!!
Pancakes for everyone!!
But pankration still tastes great
In Greek mythology Pankration was a combat sport Invented byHeracles and Theseus.
Alexander the great army trained pankration.
As said before, pankration was kind of an early mma. Most techniques were allowed.
Pankration had several very abusable rules which made the sport very short-lived amongst its athletes though.
For example, small joint manipulation was allowed, and fingerbreaking was a very common act during the fights. Also, tapping out was considered really shameful, so very often the fights would be stopped only after the other fighter was totally unconsious or beaten into a bloody pulp.
It was just an excuse for guys to get naked together and roll around. Later it became wrestling.
he was also a flamer:redface:
I remember Kimo Lepoldo, Lists Pankration as his Discipline in the early UFCs,
Go to www.fightleague.org for info on Pankration in the western United States.
