Laamb – African Martial Arts Style
Given this popularity, top Laamb participants can earn huge paydays despite Senegal’s relative poverty. According to the New York Times, “Today, the going rate is $100,000 for top-tier matches, not including the sideshows”… but the “vast majority will earn less than $2,000 in the ring, and many will earn nothing”.
