"mano y mano" is Spanish for hand AND hand. Used for comedic effect, to imply mental simplicity, in several films. (Other variants include "mono y mono", Spanish for monkey and monkey = malapropism el mejor)

This is the actual phrase that is so often mutilated)

"mano y mano" is Spanish for Hand to hand. Usually associated in engaging in throwing fisticuffs with two or more people, usually two.

Is layman's terms, a fight, but not usually followed closely to it's meaning. Often times, swords, or other weapons, not involved with guns or firearms, are associated with the term.
