Ramzan Kadyrov, the Moscow-backed leader of the Russian republic of Chechnya, is receiving heavy criticism after video surfaced of his three young sons competing in a mixed martial arts event on the eve of his 40th birthday.

While having his sons fight wouldn’t sound like such a bad idea if the boys were young adults, the fact that the oldest of the Kadyrov sons is only 10 years old is the reason why so much attention has been brought to the event.

Akhmad (10) defeated another boy via technical knockout in what was described as an exhibition fight on a nationally televised card earlier this week. Akhmad’s younger brothers, 9-year-old Eli and 8-year-old Adam, also won their fights in front a rabid crowd of adults on hand at the Grand Prix Akhmat 2016 international tournament in Chechnya’s capital of Grozny.

I have no problem with children learning combat sports or even competing under the age of 10. My kids are 10 and 7 and they both participate in Kudo. Difference is though that they wear full protective gear including vests and face shields, and of course aren't competing in giant arenas surrounded by drunken screaming adults (except me of course).

My son has been in karate since he was 4, he is 8 now and they spar every week with the required equipment and such, at no point should they come close to knocking anyone out, that's just a complete disregard for child safety

I heard Fedor spoke out about it and someone came after his little girl

I guess they hit her in the chest so the mark wouldn't be visible. I hope, Fedor finds this scum beats him into a coma and he is left sharing a cell with Alek.

I held back my ten year old kid. I make him fight 8 year olds in karate. He only gets ice cream after for clean KOs.

I don't want him to be soft so when we spar it's always pride rules. Of course, I can't always be there to train with him so I bought him a bear to wrestle.

Not sure about the accuracy considering the source, but this is going around. Sad if true

Edit: credit to Bill for mentioning it first.

If the mere mentioning of fedors name in a disrespectful manner can cause professional athletes to agree to fight ........

I fear the worst for the indignant bastard who dare lay hands on the princess of the last emporor.

Surely heads will role.....and this is a literal statement.
