Tip o' the kamilavka, once again, to my intrepid contact in the world of Eastern Orthodoxy. When I remarked that the monks should just go ahead and schedule the brawl, and do it in a neutral location like, say, a Lutheran church, he suggested they could call it "The Thrilla with a Kadila," explaining, "For those of you who do not speak churchese, a kadila is the incense burner, attached by chains, and used with deadly accuracy by Eastern Christians-Greeks, Russian, Armenians etc."
