When I first saw Royce Gracie defeat all comers by taking them to the ground and employing submissions back in 1993, I was impressed. Years later when Gracie defeated Dan Severn, a stellar Greco-Roman wrestler with a 90 pound size advantage, I was more than impressed—I was hooked on the sport of MMA. Eventually, I began writing about the sport and the impressive athletes that partake in it and simply never stopped.
