Remember “Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots”? That was the Dictator’s favorite toy as a kid. These Sambo matches sort of remind me of that game. One guy is red, the other one is blue and they beat the crap out of each other.
But the robots never slammed each other into the ground then ripped their legs off. If they did, maybe I would have started submission wrestling much earlier. These Sambists do throw each other around, though, and it’s fun to watch. I’m not up on the rules of sport Sambo, so I wasn’t sure why this match was stopped before time ran out [note to Dictator: that's the total victory throw]. I guess the one robot had too many points on the other, so they called the match. Whatever the case, that was some good standing technique and I’m going to try to copy their form during my training.
