What happens when you take Soccer, Football, Rugby, Wrestling, MMA,and what ever sport you can think of, and mix them together? The Answer is the 500 plus year old Sport of Calcio Storico.

This Italian sport can be dated back as far as 1574 when King Henry III was invited to watch a "match". The translation of the name Calcio Storico is "Historic Football". Funny thing is that matches aren't called matches but called conflicts.

Below we has some great footage of the game:
