But that is what has happened in Russia as a form of violent NBA is taking shape.

Elements of basketball and wrestling are prevalent, but the game also has a likeness to aspects of American football and rugby.

Footage of the sport shows that it is played on a basketball court with hoops at each end.

However, the difference comes with the level of physical contact.

It appears to be legal for players to perform German suplexes on each other as a form of tackle.

And what is even more confusing is that those performing the suplexes often take their shirts off before throwing opposition players to the floor.

Reacting to clips of the suplexes on social media, one person said: “Is this for real? WTF that is crazy.”

Another added: “The object is to strip naked and then suplex your opponent?”

While a fourth responded: “Is ripping the shirt off a rule?”

Bizarre sport ‘Rugball’ is a mix between basketball and wrestling

The game is popular in Russia, where it is played at a professional level in a 22-team league.

The fierce physicality of the contest, combined with the need for incredible fitness and sharp reactions, helped make it a popular pastime for MMA legend Khabib Nurmagomedov.

It first went viral back in 2021 as NBA star Donovan Mitchell reacted: “Bro what is going on…”

And Charlotte Hornets ace Terry Rozier added: “Mannnn this def soccer, basketball, football and wrestling all in 1.”
