The air practically pulses with anticipation and the mood in the arena has reached a fever pitch. This crowd is ready to see a fight, and who are you to deny them? You step into the Octagon, face your opponent, shake hands and it’s on. Besides the mean mug staring back at you, everything else fades to black. Your greatest asset is your focus, and it lets you interpret the slightest muscle twitch as a premonition for the swing or kick that’s about to come. The circling dance you’ve been in abruptly ends with two swift jabs and an uppercut that you avoid – but just barely. You use his momentum to add even more force to the elbow you swing around and slam into his jaw. The shock of it reverberates up your shoulder and neck. He’s still on his feet, but you know you’ve got what it takes. The crowd will be happy. It’s going to be a good fight.
