He steps in the cage with a beautiful glow;
The spotlights shine bright; hardened muscles glisten.
Awaiting in his corner to start the show,
Things get real when the opponent’s missin’.
In the barrage of high paced combinations;
Safety relied on his clever gyrations.
A right hook landed, his rage began to flood;
The game became survival, seeing his blood.
