Police footage filmed with an infrared helicopter camera recently captured two kangaroos fighting in the bushland of Victoria, Australia. They released the video on Tuesday.

An Australian police helicopter caught a pair of uber-competitive kangaroos on camera duking it out in the middle of the night in the bushland.

The Victoria Police Department released the undated video that was shot with an infrared camera.

Like UFC fighters, the kangaroos jump and kick each other. In the background, a third kangaroo is just hanging out and grazing.

National Geographic says kangaroos live in small groups called “mobs” (well, yeah) in Australia, and troops or herds elsewhere. These herds typically contain 50 or more animals. “If threatened, kangaroos pound the ground with their strong feet in warning, National Geographic writes. “Fighting kangaroos kick opponents, and sometimes bite.”
