On a snowy road, seemingly in the middle of no where, two large groups of young men walked toward each other like rival gangs clad in athletic pants. As they came together, they began brawling without any obvious provocation.
The fight was brutal. For some, it was bloody.
By the end, many were lying in the fetal position on the ground.
Then, as suddenly as it began, the fighting stopped. The participants were were helping each other up, shaking each others' hands and smiling through bruised and bloodied lips as they headed off toward their respective buses, which would take them back from whence they'd come.
Watch the footage (Warning: some of the images might be considered graphic or violent):
According to the Russian website Delfi (via an unofficial translation), the groups were from two Russian cities — Chelyabinsk and Yekaterinburg. They formally established a time and meeting place between the two cities where they proceeded to have it out. As Delfi pointed out, some in the video's comments said rules were violated by men who kicked or beat on those who were already on the ground.
