bull warming up before the bull fighting in Fujairah, UAE.
Fujairah's bullfighting is more like bull-wrestling or head-butting, where two bulls lock horns in a three to four-minute fight that usually ends with no bloodshed.
The rule of the game is simple: The bull, which forces the opponent to run away or back down, is declared the winner. If neither backs away, then it is a draw and around 10 men from each side will drag the bulls with ropes.
