Epic Fighting Championship put on a controversial bout, pitting Alexander Pistoletov​ against Sasha Mamaha.

​Pistoletov, a Russian pornstar and singer, went the distance with blogger Mamaha​ in a bizarre clash that saw a fan intervene and try to stop the fight.

The referee, with the help of some officials, partially prevented the fan. But his intervention halted the contest, prompting a restart in the same position.  

Once the fight resumed, ​Pistoletov secured a submission but Team Mamaha​ disputed the decision. 

​Pistoletov agreed to a fourth round that Mamaha​ won, claiming a decision victory. ​​

The nature of the bout as well as the conclusion of Pistoletov ​vs. Mamaha got fight fans talking on social media. 

One joked: "Sometimes it's good to remind yourself that there are promotions lower than Bellator."

A second wrote: "Trying to keep track of all these Russian freakshow events is exhausting."

A third added: "Somebody needs to check on Russia..."​​

So, there you have it - one of weirdest and wackiest​ bouts in the history of combat sports. 

It's not the first intergender bout in recent memory as Polish promotion MMA-VIP3​ staged not one but TWO man vs. woman bouts on their card.
