MMA Storytime’s Theme Song

Years ago, the UFC would open their pay-per-views with the song “Face the Pain” by Stemm. The track braced fans to expect the unexpected, perching us on the edge of our seats. 

Although MMA’s global leader has since phased out its use of “Face the Pain,” the idea behind the raucous tune represents everything MMA Storytime has to offer: tales, memes, and podcasts. First of all, most of the stories and poems found at mmastorytime.com square off with various challenges found throughout the bloggersphere and give them an MMA twist; the memes and podcasts, on the other hand, brings the followers of MMA Storytime’s social media—Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube—face-to-face with the humorous, positive, or heart-breaking aspects of the sport.

Lyrics to “Face the Pain”:

Time to end this suffering

I need a minute to my-self

So I can drift away

You will never get to me, what can be done I’ll do myself

So I can slip away

Watch you rise, and watch you fall

Watch you losing control

Now I see the way

Watch you rise, and watch you fall

Now I’m about to break

Watch you rise, and watch you fall

Watch you loosing control (Crawl inside my head)

Watch you rise, and watch you fall

Now I’m about to break

Face the pain, no escape can you step to this

Face the pain, Face the pain, It’s ripping me into pieces

Face the pain, no escape can you step to this

Face the pain, Face the pain, It’s ripping me into pieces

Face this mirror in front of me, I see the image of myself

So I can drift away

My thought runs deep, I’ve trained to meet

Our solders are advancing south

So I can slip away

Watch you rise, and watch you fall

Watch you losing control

Now I see the way

Watch you rise, and watch you fall

Now I’m about to break

Watch you rise, and watch you fall

Watch you losing it all

Crawl inside my head

Watch you rise, and watch you fall

Now I’m about to break

Face the pain, no escape can you step to this

Face the pain, Face the pain, It’s ripping me into pieces

Face the pain, no escape can you step to this

Face the pain, Face the pain, It’s ripping me into pieces

Watch you rise, and watch you fall

Watch you rise, and watch you fall

Watch you losing control

Watch you losing control

Watch you rise, and watch you fall

Now I’m about to break

Break

Now I’m about to break

Face the pain, no escape can you step to this

Face the pain, Face the pain, It’s ripping me into pieces

Face the pain, no escape can you step to this

Face the pain, Face the pain, It’s ripping me into pieces

Pain

In to pieces

Pain

In to pieces
