The bell rang, and the bald brute charged across the cage as if shot from a cannon.
Nick dodged the initial rush, but he was perplexed; this was not how his team visualized the opening round. Normally, this dude began fights at a snail’s pace.

Earning the victory, somehow, Nick learned a valuable lesson: expect the unexpected.
