Mixed martial arts is one of the most exciting combat sports. Although it is very violent and deadly, every time an individual enters the Octagon, they are putting their life on the line. You remain at risk of potentially fatal injuries. Perhaps that is why it is so widely seen and supported around the world. Supreme discipline is required throughout life to excel in this sport. From an early age, you have to compel yourself to daily tormenting training to be effective. Joe Rogan on his recent podcast, with Steve-O, discussed those injuries, a few during the Frank Mir fight.

Fighters must maintain their fitness and physique to excel in the Octagon. The one who takes the most care of himself and who is the most disciplined often reaches the top.

Joe describes how Minotauro opts for a guillotine during the fight, and Frank the reverse. He lands his right leg on Minotauro and then proceeds to perform an armbar. Since Antonio doesn’t tap, his arm breaks. He said, “I remember hearing the snap. It was so awful.

Joe added, “Now watch this here. Instantaneous! Argh! Frank is so big and strong your arm doesn’t stand a chance. In fact, he broke the arms of 2 different world champions inside the Octagon.

He keeps on, “He broke Tim Sylvia’s arm with an armbar and he broke Minotauro’s arm. And when that arm breaks like that man, I don’t think you’re ever the same.
