Blood on the Sand: Comanche vs. Mongol

Tonight at 10pm, Comanche clashes with Mongol in Deadliest Warrior's most spectacular mounted battle to date. Join Max Geiger in this week's Blood on the Sand for an inside look at Deadliest Warrior's penultimate episode.

This is the second-to-last episode of Deadliest Warrior this season, and my last turn at writing the blog - Geoff's locking the door and turning out the lights next week for Navy SEAL vs. Israeli Commando, which is a fitting end to a kick-ass season. I know some dudes out there are pulling pretty hard for a third season, but these two matchups are going to be pretty hard to top. Each one easily has the potential to stand at the top of the ancient and modern matchups, respectively. We've seen a lot of mayhem, sweet technology, and thousands upon thousands of simulated deaths this season, along with defining 101 ways to destroy gel torsos.

We're not here to get sentimental though - we're here to talk about two of history's most fearsome cavalrymen. The Comanches, lords of the Great Plains, and the Mongols, scourge of Eurasia's steppes, and the conquerors who forged the largest contiguous land empire in history. We're two horsemen short of an apocalypse, but I'll be damned if we're not trying.

The laundry list of things the Mongols accomplished is astounding, and I don't have the time or the inclination to get into it here. Genghis Khan's achievements speak for themselves - I can't think of any other ruler who can boast of being the ancestor of 8% of men in former Mongol lands (National Geographics points out that this is something like 16 million dudes in the entire world), but damn, if that doesn't point to one brand of conquest, it certainly points to the other.
