A fight that takes place in a slaughterhouse, amongst the meat chunks hanging from the hooks. Adds a certain edge to a confrontation, surrounding it with death from the onset and simultaneously blocking the line of sight in all directions. Expect NoOSHACompliance and a ConveyorBeltODoom. Bonus point if the place doubles as a SickeningSlaughterhouse.
