The draw of two men fighting is as old as civilization itself but the sport has always been at odds with the notion of civil society. Over the last decade, Mixed Martial Arts has grown from a controversial no-holds barred gladiatorial sideshow into a billion dollar phenomenon eclipsing boxing as the world's dominant combat sport. But far from Las Vegas, in gyms and low-rent arenas across America, the big lights are a dream. Here, men fight to test their mettle, fortified with the promise that any man can become a champion.
