These Photos Of UFC Fighters Before And After Fights Define The Term ‘Horrific’

I don’t pretend to be good at fighting. I’m better at fleeing. But if my life were on the line, or I was put into the position of defending myself or my family, I’d hope I could at least hold my own. Or at least scream loud enough until help arrives.

It’s for these reasons that MMA amazes me — grown men purposely kicking each other’s faces in for money and title belts. Fascinating. I especially find the idea crazy when I see pics like these of UFC fighters after matches. Dear Christ. That’s some dedication to a sport. To get your face bashed in hundreds of different times. Standing ovation.

That said, CM Punk, there’s still time to say “just kidding.”
