As Billie Jean King said, “a champion is afraid of losing, everyone else is afraid of winning.” In a winner’s heart, they aren’t satisfied with being second best; they want to be first place. No one wants to be ordinary; it is our nature to strive to be awesome.
People fight for every reason out there. Some fight because of bad reasons while others fight for good ones. They fight to regain control that was taken from them as kids, or they fight to prove themselves to others. Some people fight to hurt others and thereby take out their frustrations, while in grappling you can do the same things in searching for submissions and not beating the guy bloody. The reasons people fight vary as much as the weather and are defined by the person and life experiences of the person. MMA or any fighting arena is a great outlet for people who came from bad pasts or just has some things to get off their chests.
