Lion Mutilates 42 Midgets in Cambodian Ring-Fight

Recommended Posts

An African Lion much like this is responsible for the death of 28 Cambodian Midgets

Spectators cheered as entire Cambodian Midget Fighting League squared off against African Lion

Tickets had been sold-out three weeks before the much anticipated fight, which took place in the city of Kâmpóng Chhnãng.

 

The fight was slated when an angry fan contested Yang Sihamoni, President of the CMFL, claiming that one lion could defeat his entire league of 42 fighters.

 

Sihamoni takes great pride in the league he helped create, as was conveyed in his recent advertising campaign for the CMFL that stated his midgets will "... take on anything; man, beast, or machine."

 

This campaign is believed to be what sparked the undisclosed fan to challenge the entire league to fight a lion; a challenge that Sihamoni readily accepted.

 

An African Lion (Panthera Leo) was shipped to centrally located Kâmpóng Chhnãng especially for the event, which took place last Saturday, April 30, 2005 in the city’s coliseum.

 

The Cambodian Government allowed the fight to take place, under the condition that they receive a 50% commission on each ticket sold, and that no cameras would be allowed in the arena.

 

The fight was called in only 12 minutes, after which 28 fighters were declared dead, while the other 14 suffered severe injuries including broken bones and lost limbs, rendering them unable to fight back.

 

Sihamoni was quoted before the fight stating that he felt since his fighters out-numbered the lion 42 to 1, that they “… could out-wit and out-muscle [it].”

 

Unfortunately, he was wrong.

The BBC quoted the midget fighting league's head as saying the midgets ("little people?" ("dwarfs?") could beat "man, beast, or machine" so maybe they would have been better off challenging a machine-gun than a lion ... I don't make this stuff up folks ...

A machine gun would have at least been quicker; if you're dumb enough to fight a lion, well, that's your problem now, isn't it?

That's where all of this is at. I still like the one about "Lawn Chair Larry".

Didn't any of the midgets say "with all due respect, boss, there ain't no way I'm fighting a damn lion"?

 

Must be easy to brainwash people in foreign countries. :lol:
