Upon the canvas, more than a loss or win;
An opportunity for painting your skills.
To triumph, how is the feeling not a sin?
The highs and lows, the twists and turns: constant thrills.
Fans go hysterical when blood hits the mat;
Fighters are like Pollock who hit like a bat.
Being tough is essential but just a piece,
Admiration drapes them like a golden fleece.
