They got around this by borrowing a trick from seedy boxing promoters the world over, pairing the favored mouse with a weaker, less ***ually experienced opponent who could not hope to spring an upset. Once a mouse had notched three consecutive victories, they studied its brains for any chemical changes

I wonder what happens if mouse A beats mouse B but doesn't get his block of cheese or whatever award comes after. AKA, feels cheated out of recognition for victory.

Or if it shares half a cheese with the other mouse in a draw.

I am tired of the arguments about how they are going to split the cheese. I say they should just fight.
