MMA is a contest like no other:
Brave warriors fly their flags into the cage;
Corners may fill with a sister or brother.
The metal architecture invites a rage.
While others may run, prizefighters feel at home,
As if they’re hypnotized by the fence’s chrome.
Two forces move forward and neither steps back;
Feats of technique and toughness blow fans’ hair back.
