Sweet Dreams, Rougheart

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

I’d be remiss if i didn’t follow up with something about our favorite MMA blogger, Joshua Beranis.

Josh got in the cage Saturday and he ended up on the mat, KO’d after 1 minute, 20 seconds. I suppose that was predictable, but hats off to Rougheart.

Here’s his report: A pummel to victory

And the rest of it: A pummel to victory: continued

The blog ends with these words:

I wanted a piece of this world ever since I was a child, but I just didn’t realize it. I have been battling doubt, discomfort, inconvenience, fear, ignorance, anger, jealousy, hate, sadness, and laziness for my entire life. When I faced Jeff, and shot those jabs in his face, and tried to put him on the ground, all those strange politics of life evaporated, leaving only a straight line to a goal. That goal is to keep fighting.
I am a fighter. I should have known about this.
I want to write about this sport, and that part of ourselves that we leave behind when we enter the cage.

If you’re a little late to the party, and don’t know the background behind Beranis’ desire to get in the cage, check out my column that published last week.
