42 Cambodian Migets Loose Fight

Spectators cheered as the entire Cambodian Midget Fighting League team squared off against one single African Lion.

Tickets had been sold-out for 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 on 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 into the arena.

The fight was called in only 12 minutes, by which time 28 fighters were declared dead, whilst the remaining 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.

I hear there is a rematch being looked at.



That’s got to be one of the stupidest things I’ve heard in a long time.
I think if your stupid enough to choose to get into a fight with a lion, you deserve what you get!!!
