VIDEO | Throwback! Antonio Inoki slaps hundreds of Japanese fans

While most fans would rather avoid being hit in any way shape or form by a fighter, fans line up by the hundreds just for the opportunity to be slapped by pro wrestler turned MMA fighter Antonio Inoki.

Before an MMA event, Inoki took to the ring, while hundreds of fans lined up down the ramp. All of them hoping for a chance to enter the ring, and be smacked by the icon.
