The Road to the Title

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.
