EDIT: THIS IS A HOAX ARTICLE AND I AM JUST REALLY STUPID

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.

Ok. So ummmmm, I can't believe a government would actually allow this to happen and even take profits from it. I mean, its morbidly humorous, but still pretty terrible.

I rarely post here anymore, but i figured this was warranted
 
Those incompetent Cambodians :rolleyes:

EDIT: At the time of making this statement the Cambodians were not all midgets.
 
Great thread title.


Too bad. I like to think humans aren't so frail.
 
Why do I get the feeling this is an internet hoax?
 
Hmm, I hope the lion doesn't get stomach ache eating all of them ;)
 
yeah, after looking into it a bit more, i found this site: http://lionvs40midgets.uk-directory.com/

Apparently, it is a hoax.

My friend sent it to me, and with the BBC templates, I just automatically assumed it was real and posted it right away.

oops.





Well, i guess, ummmmm......

Who do YOU think would win in a fight between 42 Cambodian Midgets and an African Lion?
 
You didn't say they were midgets!

:eek:
 
the lion had prep time


also i didn't know the population of cambodia had up to 42 midgets...

hmmm...

saying this, 12 minutes is an awesome record to have, imagine the chat up lines at bars...

i stood off a lion for 12 minutes

:eek:
 
When did those Cambodians turn into midgets?

I withdraw my earlier slur on the nation of Cambodia.

they were always midgets.

CMFL = Cambodian Midget Fighting League

and they say they are midgets in the article.

I just forgot to put that down in the thread title.
