Apparently safety regulations aren't much of a thing in Russia. As we saw last week, the country is no stranger to 2v2 MMA fights... but how about one in an obstacle course?

That's the premise for the Russian MMA organization "Hip Show," which features two pairs of fighters duking it out in a bizarre arena featuring ramps, platforms, and even rope swings.

As if to amp up the WTF-factor just a little bit more, one team is put at a disadvantage at the beginning of the match, and has to compete with only one fighter for the first 10 seconds.

Give it a watch below. The first couple of minutes are an explanation of the surprisingly complex rules, with the fight beginning at about 4:50.
