  Bullfight \Bull"fight`\, Bullfighting \Bull"fight`ing\, n.
     a sport of great antiquity, in which men torment, and fight
     with, a bull or bulls in an arena, for public amusement, --
     still popular in Spain, Portugal and Latin American. In the
     Spanish version a matador kills the bull with a sword after
     the bull has been weakened by wounds from small barbed rods,
     and after he has displayed courage and artistic skill in
     causing the bull to charge many times while he stands still
     or nearly still. In some versions the bull is not killed.
     Occasionally the matador is wounded or killed by the bull. --
     {Bull"fight`er}, n.
  
     Syn: corrida.
          [1913 Webster +PJC]
