You lose, you’re out!
Two rival politicians from Brazil are currently on fire over the internet for fighting each other inside a cage to settle a simple and petty dispute.
Simao Peixoto, the mayor of the Borrba City in Northwestern Brazil, fought against former councilor Erineu Alvas Da Silva, on December 12, 2021, inside a cage to settle a dispute.
A vida imita o meme e, em Borba, no Amazonas, o prefeito da cidade, Simão Peixoto (PP) lutou contra o ex-vereador Erineu Alves da Silva na madrugada desse domingo (12) no que, sem muito exagero, pode ser considerado uma ‘rinha de políticos’. pic.twitter.com/bmzkiBB2za

The feud between the two politicians started in September this year after Mirico shared a video criticizing the mayor for failing to properly maintain the city’s waterpark.
45-year-old Mirico became angry and decided to challenge the guy. Peixoto accepted the challenge and said that they would settle the dispute in the fight like real men.
A month before the fight happened, Peixoto told the locals that he would only be fighting against the politician if a fight could be organized inside a ring.
He said: “I’m not a street fighter … I’m the mayor of the municipality of Borba. [But] if he really wants to fight … we’re ready to fight … I’ve always been a winner.”
In a video that was recently shared on social media, Peixoto could be seen entering the ring at around 2:30 AM.
The thing is, the mayor won the fight and beat the hell out of the other person.
