We can only speculate how such fight could have looked like. It could have been similar to how Majings took on Mlovathis - when Mr T arrived on the scene already after KT was severly injured. It did not have to be 2vs4 from the get go.

The majingilanes had a very special way of facing fights, they never did it in equal numbers, they always fought being a majority. I believe without fear of being wrong and without fanaticism in between that, being on equal terms, the Maginjilanes had no chance against 4 mapogos.
What one theory says is that Dreadlocks, T and Makhulu returned to the north side where they had established their packs, but Pretty boy and Rasta stayed in the west chasing the Maginjilanes by themselves, but I can't understand when and why. they separated since they are seen in a video together roaring and marking the territory, I see impossible the 3 who were going north have abandoned their brothers to their fate knowing that they themselves went directly to fight against the maginjilanes. It's all very confusing and I think we'll never really know.

That's the fighting style of all male lion coalitions, since equal fights have a greater chance of resulting in death.

Obviously odds in such confrontation would be well in favour larger,stronger and experianced Mapogos as Majingilanes were still youngsters back then, but how does that matter? Lion competition not always goes into straight up confrontation.

Mapogos did not chasse Majings. They went into their territory roaring, looking for a fight, but since they were not able to find Majingilanges, they turned back west towards their territory and pride. I assume PB and Rasta just returned east soon after on their own, but as I said exact  circumstances of Rasta's death are unknown.

I read that the fathers of Mapogo had 'go in war' with one coalition of three called the Mlowati males around 2000.
Did we have more informations about them?

I post it here as it was about the West Street males.

I have read that two male offspring of the Mapogo made it to the nomadic stage and disappeared into Kruger a long time ago.
Is there any information on which of the Mapogo males sired those two off spring?

It is ussual that all coalition members mate with lionesses in takeover pride and this case is no different. Any of the 6 Mapogos could potentially be the father of their 2 sons from Othawa pride.
