The first punch reminded me of a scene from a movie. I imagined the impact in slow motion, blood gushing from his face, a ringing sensation and the crunch it would make if it were my own.
Then the screams from the crowd would steadily get louder and everything would speed up to present time. They yelled his name, "Get him Bear. Get him."
From my spot on the scaffolding I simply watched the gym take on and embrace their primal instinct. Watching two men hit and bloody each other until they crowned a victor after three rounds.
I found it fascinating.
Photo story in the works. Here are my images from the Rumble in the Ancient City Mixed Martial Arts Event.
