Before the fight
Bullfighters have a few traditions however the usual one is done when the bullfighter throws his hat behind him and if it lands right way up the bullfighter will have luck however if it lands the other way round the fight might not be so lucky.
After the Fight
The bullfighters do a lap of honour after each fight, their team will accompany the fighter around the arena and their fans usually throw flowers and other gifts, sometimes even clothing such as chats and tops, and they usually pick the item up and throw it back to the person, this is done to show a sign of mutual respect.
The Bull are usually weigh between 450 kg to 520 kg, the gate where the bull comes out into the ring will displace the bulls weight, what ranch the bull is from.
