Clutching your ticket, excited for showtime;
Every fan brings their own level of passion.
Some root for the good guy; some cheer for the heel;
You know who’s their fighter based on their fashion.
The arena fills promptly, starting some cheer,
Though the noise will explode when fighters are here.
Inside the cage, several dreams will get shattered
While spectators gazed, their memories mattered.
