Swirls of your signature on the dotted line,
Burned the candle at both ends, without reward;
Now, promised a bright future: all will be fine.
The moment your training’s been pushing you toward.
At the top of the game with contract in hand,
The road to get here is tough to understand.
Most wouldn’t seize a chance to fight in a cage,
Nor is it stunning when some quit at some stage.
