Livelihood bestowed in five-minute chunks,
If three rounds or a handful, there’s an ending.
Both muscular women and shredded up hunks
Have half a paycheck on the outside that’s pending.
Paid some to make weight, the rest is for a win;
Any union would find this pay rate a sin.
Breathe a sigh of relief upon the scale,
An MMA God/Goddess knows you’ll prevail.
