First, before you click the video, be forewarned that this is very graphic footage from various MMA competitions from some of the best MMA fighters around. Second, I want to make it clear I’m not posting this video for shock value or to just show some gore.

What this video portrays is the definition of  a ‘Warrior’s Heart.’  People  bicker about the violence of MMA. They can try to argue that MMA preys upon the poor in society.  What you can’t argue is the courage it takes to step into the ring.  Very few who train in martial arts ever dare to step into the ring, and this video shows why.

Those that do deserve our extreme respect. Whether its the UFC or a ‘fight night’ at a local bar, anyone who dares go into a cage with the threat of bodily harm, truly has a warrior’s heart.
