Women hate it when someone turns up in the same outfitWomen hate it when someone turns up in the same outfit

It’s the world burqaweight championship, direct from downtown Riyadh’s packed Mullahdome stadium:

Five women in burqas were filmed brawling at the side of a busy road in broad daylight – with one of them repeatedly dropping a toddler.

Footage shows the women throwing punches up against a barrier as stunned drivers slow down but continue to pass by.

One woman repeatedly smashes another one who is holding a toddler, and she drops the child onto the floor as she tries to defend herself.

The mum twice tries to pick up the girl, but drops her as she struggles with the other woman as three others fight just a few feet away from them.

The first drop is a point violation. A second toddler drop should be an automatic disqualification. It’s all there in the rules, people.

She continues fighting her opponent while grabbing the tot and trying to pick her up.

However, her rival lunges at her and the youngster is dumped to the ground again.

The mother hits the woman and tries to pick up the child again, holding her opponent off at arm’s length.

Rookie error. She brought her bub to a wife fight.

The brawlers are seen pulling hair and throwing punches, but appear to tire out at the end of the footage.

Endurance is crucial in multi-sack combat, because you never actually know how much damage you’ve inflicted upon an opponent. Best to always assume they are completely match-fit.

The motorist filming from a car window appears to grow bored and drives off.

There was probably a scheduled beheading down the road. Or maybe a thief was up for a behanding. Riyadh has an exceptionally crowded entertainment marketplace.
