Most Intense Sports of the Ancient World

Although these days we have our fair share of strange and crazy sports.
Pankration

While today we have MMA, the Greeks had something known as Pankration. The goal of this bloody, one on one, anything goes fist fight was to bring your opponent as close to death without actually killing them. If you did happen to accidently kill them then you would automatically forfeit the match as any dead fighter was instantly declared the victor.
