Wrestler 'Dragon 666' performs his pre-fight rituals outside the ring in front of an eager crowd of spectators. He is part of a travelling troupe of fighters who go from village to village putting on a show for the residents. They stay in each village for about a week performing each night, charging around 500 CDF (0.24 GBP) for each entrance, before moving onto the next destination. The rural villages where they pitch up are usually starved of entertainment and the wrestlers are a popular diversion for the locals.
