On why I like boxing and the UFC (really!)

I am a tea-on-rainy-days and sweeping-skirts-in-rambling books kind of lady but I love me some UFC, and occasionally, an electrifying boxing match (see above!!). More than two men turning each other into well-tenderized meat to satisfy the blood lust of the masses, UFC is art painted with your fists. A good fight is brutal, funny and honest. A good fight is immediate.

And in our age of tweet wars and drone strikes and international quagmires, it feels good to see two people meet each other in an open space where the borders are well-defined. Armed with nothing but skill, wits and limbs. It feels good to see the exact point when flesh meet flesh.
