Mtripp: Master of Tiger Claw Kung Fu.
Oh, as to "opponents".... I have more pics of this match, and while he did not have claws, he had NO muzzle or leash... I pinned him.
This happened at a fair where I was doing the Water Torture Cell, you can see it in the background.
But I wonder if any of the Tripp Trashers ever wrestled a Tiger? PS, he had a mean low double and would go right for biting your balls. This pic I am twisting away from that.

I got pretty good at out grappling Ducati at Sityodtong. Not a tiger but he's a fucking monster of a pooch. My Dogjitsu is top notch.Now darkness comes; you don't know if the whales are coming. - Royce Gracie

I can do better than that....
This is at the end where I pinned him and his owner is putting the lease back on. You can't have him "loose" when the paying people are on the fairgrounds. The Tiger was a "wrestling Tiger" and people would pay to watch people wrestle with him. He was on a leash and muzzle for that... lucky me. I found if I put my leg far in his mouth he couldn't close it, and I could then use his head to turn and pin him.
FYI, I had the most colorful and HUGE marks everywhere for weeks after that match.
...and some people say I never fought anyone... even Ron never fought a Tiger! Either did Rickson! : P

Of course more people will notice my weight than those rather large teeth in my leg....

I actually didn't.
I saw the teeth in your leg and was thinking " jeezus, did he really get bitten?" Was this a regualr gig, or something that you ad-libbed on?
(I almost bought the "toughest man alive" last night b y Gene Lebell, there was a picture of him wrestling with a black bear in it, this made me think of that.)

Well... I was on the receiving end of many practical jokes that week.
On that day, before the fair opened, I walked out of my trailer to find a tiger there...
...not wishing to look like a coward, I wrestled the tiger.
Hell yes he bit me! When he went after my balls I went for a triangle, which doesn't work on Tigers, but at least he didn't bite my balls with those teeth.
I had to wear a "wet suit" for the cell the rest of the week as the HUGE purple marks kinda distracted from the effect.
