Two brawling men put on quite a show with their impromptu roadside wrestling match making the rounds today..

Punches were thrown and bodies wrestled in the match caught on tape yesterday afternoon on Lorong 39 Geylang Road. So far, it doesn’t seem like anyone’s been arrested, but police told reporters they were investigating after a complaint was filed.

The motive for their melee malice was unclear.

The nearly two-minute clip starts mid-fight with a man in white punching and kicking a man in black onto a grass patch just beside the road, where their cars conveniently blocked traffic. They continued to wrestle, with the man in white sitting atop his combatant at one point. A woman with the man in white makes a cameo, exiting their vehicle to just stare at them.

Shortly thereafter, three onlookers broke up the fight and both men retreated slowly, retrieving their footwear before getting back into their cars, abandoning their dignity. 

They then depart as if nothing had happened.
