    March Madness 2024: The "All Animals are 200 lbs Cage Match" Edition

    March Madness 2024: The "All Animals are 200 lbs Cage Match" Edition

    Here's the annual Tooth & Claw March Madness episode, wherein Jeff has decided the competition will be that all animals will all weigh exactly 200 pounds, and then fight in hypothetical 1-on-1 cage matches until the last one is standing.
    We kind of try to operate under consistent logic and rules, but half the fun of these episodes is the delirium it devolves into by the end. We hope you find some value and entertainment in the chaos.
