Easter 2 years ago that had a much ballyhoo'ed match-up between Yekini (the current national hwt champion) and Tyson (named for Mike Tyson--the former champ). Each wrestler was guaranteed 100 million CFA which is equivalent to about $200,000 each. That's a lot of money for one 5 minute match (4 1/2 minutes was just sparring--no attempts whatsoever), and in a country where the average income is about $600/year!
    I actually watched that match before I posted the other. Those dudes were throwing punches in the one I saw, but yeah a quick head touch won it for one of them. I haven't looked at the one you linked yet, but I'll bet it's the same one. Looked more like MMA to me.

    Ha ha!! It took me a few years to get used to that saying too. Just doesn't seem to fit, but I suspect it has lost it's real meaning in the translation. As far as being choked out, I've had it happen to me many, many times. The last time was about a year ago while in the dojo just warming up with some mat time. Dude who choked me was a 130lbs, 17yr old kid. He was trying the clock choke and I mentioned that he was walking the wrong way. I figured I'd have time to tap once he started doing it right. Nope!! When I awoke, I asked him what he was doing in my bedroom! Scared the piss out of him, but the rest of the guys have not stopped making fun of me since.

    Yes, matches are pre-determined whether they're with punches or not. Sometimes they aren't allowed and sometimes they are--I guess the wrestlers decide which way they want to do it.

    I think it's fair to say that this thread has taken on a life of its own!!

    Although I personally can't get enough of the Sengal wrestling, the Dapper Dan video is here:http://wpialwrestling.net/wrestlingr...012/PA_USA.wmv

    This thread reminds me of the commentators of a football game that is a total blowout by the third quarter. They start talking about everything but the game. I guess the season must really be over...
