Most of the fighters in the UFC started out in kick boxing, martial arts, beating up kids on the playground, and karate before debuting in MMA and becoming professional intimidators â€“ but once they get in the door at the UFC, itâ€™s all in, or go home.
And, why not? Thanks to Dana White, the President of the UFC, Mixed Martial Arts (for the two people out there who didnâ€™t already know this) is now one of the most popular and fastest growing sports in the world. One canâ€™t help but think that, with all of the beatings, injuries, and brutality that the fighters endure, they must be raking in the big bucks.
Literally, brutality so awesome — I mean, bad — that the sport is banned in New York. New York! BIG bucks. Has to be. At least enough to cover the trips in an ambulance, right?
