Re: Pound for Pound: The Modern Gladiators of Mixed Martial Arts
The sport is taken more seriously due in large part to The UFC. From fight cards across the World, to the talent from every corner of this planet, and the talent in every weight class are all reasons why the sport is as good as ever. Their countdown shows are class, and the glimpse they give into fighter's lives on these Fox cards are great too. On that opening episode of the TUF last week we got to see family and friends in the crowd supporting their loved ones. The truth is these men are modern day Gladiators.
When I see or hear the word Gladiator my thoughts are of Great arenas and competitors in Ancient Rome. Not The UFC's opening theme. I think some of you have hangups when it comes to the organization as you sound out of touch. If I come across a book about the sport that I love I'm going to open it up and click on the links provided. Beouche is right.
