From BBC News

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.

Cambodian Midget Fighting League

WOW! I never knew they existed. Or I guess they did exist.
What can you really say about this except this is kind of ass backwards from how it usually goes. They would usually eat the lion,dog,cat, rat or whatever the hell else is around.

Scopes debunked the story already.

I think if it would have been real with video, local TV news would have run with it.

Does anyone remember the phony Cnn story about the study done to show a correlation between oral sex and breast cancer? The "study" showed that women who performed oral sex on men and swallowed on a regular basis (once or twice a week) reduced their chances of breast cancer. This "story" looks exactly the same!

Phony but Funny. PETA would be screaming because po' ole Lion King was assailed by forty-two yellow pygmies. PETA (People Eaten by The Animals) would also be screaming since they'd need Temp help to process the application forms. Phony but Funny.
