Competing under a humongous spotlight,
Not a single move can hide in the shadows.
The winners shine, much like a mystic moonlight;
Strikes, kicks, takedowns, grappling, knees, and elbows,
The key to success isn’t always offense;
Sprawling and feints are needed inside the fence.
A glimpse into greatness is more than one look;
It’s a long journey, like chapters in a book.
