Cockfighting is a blood sport between two roosters that have been trained to be aggressive toward each other. The roosters have one of their legs fitted with metal blade. During the fight, when their legs are kicking each other, this blade will injure or even kill the opponent. The owner of the winner will bring the dead / injured rooster home.

This game is banned in certain countries, but you can still see this in some other countries.

The game usually involves money. Lots of people in the cockpit bet against each other and it’s amazing to see their sign language during the betting time before the game starts. Two persons can bet against each other even though they sit very far apart from each other. Only the sign language involved to initiate and close the deal. When the game is over, you can see the loser throw money (rolled and tied with rubber band) to the winner.
