The trophy, the belt, the pinnacle of sports,
But earning an MMA championship
Is a series of climbing through random ports;
The road to the top is a roundabout trip.
Searching for a direction from anywhere,
Such expectation soon leaves in a long stare.
Like a mistress can lead some man’s heart astray,
Gold in their eyes, losing the martial arts way.
