No. fight happens at the same time, unlike this. So you could give this deathtouch/infect and kill/weaken your opponents creature before it touches you. With Fight, it would just kill the other at the end, but still take damage.

I'm scared. You know why? This looks better then Tahngarth. Poor, poor minotaurs.

@GrimjawxRULES: I might be mistaken on this, but my understanding is that an "if you do" clause makes the second piece a part of the same effect and it would all resolve simultaneously. If that's the case then the gladiator would still take the damage if it kills the other creature.

I cud see him seeing play in RDW as he's at very least a 2 for 1 and depending of the matchup might be better than hell's thunder, especially against low creature decks.

I used to not think very highly of this one. Then it smacked me in the face a couple times.

"Whenever Cyclops Gladiator attacks, it fights target creature."

Or, "Whenever Cyclops Gladiator attacks, it plays YuGiOh for a moment."

You take the power *last known* before the creature left. If you hit a 4/4 creature but this guy has infect, it will hit you for 0 damage. *It will still hit you!*, but for zero damage.

Thus Everlasting Torment is a beautiful curve into this guy :D
Also, Shard_Fenix is correct about Deathtouch and also covers the wither/infect information
And.. phyrexiantrygon is *mostly* correct, in that this is not quite the same as the fight mechanic; as one can tell by the interaction of Wither/Infect.
