The mixed martial arts fighting is for real men…not sissies. If you have plans to participate in the MMA you better be a bad ass. The MMA fighters eat good boxers for lunch. If you think you have what it takes, think again. You better have a thick skull and be in great shape. The fighting will take you to a place where rules are to be broken and bones as well. The faster you can render your opponent disabled the better. If you take too much time you will be the brain damaged one on the mat. Dove Medical Press detailed the real brain damage that is sustained in the MMA.
