A contest, usually between Marines or military personel, where each man pitches in around $50. With that money, they rent a bar or club, and the rest goes to prize money. The object is to get the ugliest girl to come with you as your date. The man with the ugliest date wins. There are specific rules:
1. They must be polite
2. They must buy the girl a drink
3. They must dance if they want to be judged
Dancing is final judging.
The Marine brought the ugliest girl he could find to the dogfight, but he still lost to the guy who brought a drag queen.
