Female Russian fighters batter each other as press conference security step in

A Russian MMA fighter dropped her female rival with a brutal punch in a shocking press conference brawl.

Security – and the two presenters – had to step in to separate the pair before any more damage could be done heading into their scheduled meeting in the cage.

More words were exchanged across the studio while everyone caught their breath. The green-jacket wearing presenter looked particularly relieved that order had been restored.

They include a porn star fighting a dwarf, a 55-year-old mum facing off against a scrawny 22-year-old man, and a bout taking place in a London phone box – to name just a few.
