The Russian wrestling scene produced another bizarre moment this week when a competitor lost after appearing to submit.

From porn stars dressed as maids fighting midgets to colossal mismatches that would make a circus show blush, the MMA sphere in the homeland of despot Vladimir Putin never fails. But this might be the craziest entry yet.

Unlike our old favorites like Epic Fighting Championship and Top Dog, this latest swap insanity hails from the world of Arena MMA, where fighters go toe-to-toe in brutal cage fights not unlike the UFC. However, unlike Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier, these challengers don’t have the same prowess.

And during a fight between Muyasar Abutrobov and Magomed Gadzhiev, viewers were treated to something quite extraordinary: self-submission. Aburobov, dressed in gray boxer shorts, seemed to dominate, landing several crushing blows to the head of Gadzhiev, dressed in red.

When Abutrobov backed his opponent to the side of the octagon in the closing stages of the first round, there seemed to be only one winner. But when he tried to pin Gadzhiev to the ground with a leg lock to force a submission, all of his good work was undone.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve seen in MMA? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

Abutrobov got into a totally wrong position, allowing Gadzhiev to regain control and force a tap of his own. Social media users couldn’t believe what they had witnessed.

One person wrote: “That’s beyond black belt level, he has the infinity stone belt.” Someone else said, “I’ve seen this several times and I’m still not sure how he did it lol.”

A third person added: “Karma bites you when you do stupid things. Not for the bad leglock attempt, but for attempting a leglock when he clearly has control of the hitting situation. I should have kept hitting him in the cage. Crazy Tactics.”

“There’s no way,” another confused viewer commented. While a fifth Twitter user asked, “How the hell did that happen lol!?”
