What makes the heart of a fighter beat? A ring. A cage. An empty gym. Early mornings, late nights, the endless grind of training and travel, all of this for little to no pay and a certain future of blood and pain. We're putting together a print anthology of stories centered around Mixed Martial Arts. We want tales that exhalt the sport and the men and women who put their bodies on the line - fathers, mothers, young and old - what drives a human being to combat sports? Inside the ring or out, training camp or a championship fight, the life of a trainer, of a fighter's wife, their children, show us something fresh. We plan to mix these stories in with tales from real fighters and trainers, amateur and professional, to make a collection of fight tales like no other!
