    Here's a European Medieval Martial Arts match between the Russian World Champion and the American Champion.

    http://deadspin.com/russian-mma-card-features-armored-knights-battling-with-1622285028

    This is Craig Michael Ivey fighting Sergey Ukolov, the Five time world champion of profights in Armored combat. Here's a fan event page for the fight:

    Craig is the fighter in blue from the united states. Seriously brave to take up a fight with Sergey. Basics are Strikes (fist, sword, shield, knee, foot, whatever) that connect are worth a point. Disarms are worth more. and knocking down your opponent are worth even more. While he's down you have an opportunity for three extra points by striking the head.

    He's also a member of the USA Knights, which can be found at www.usaknights.org They are the world champions in the International Medieval Combat Federation for 2014. (medieval-combat.org)

    It would be cooler if they used maces

    They do in the 5 on 5 matches and larger battles. They use axes and poleaxes too.
