But besides not being a sports girl in general, and besides not being a blood sports girl especially, I don't watch the UFC because it makes me feel all tingly in a way I don't understand. Haha, just kidding that's the only reason TO watch it. And that is the self awareness test, cuz if you don't at least get the irony of this sport then...well I don't know. The majority (not all but most) of those who watch this sport are some of the most heteronormative (at least) and homophobic (at medium) people who you'll observe*: Coincidence?
* I'd say meet but I'll admit that I'm rarely if never inclined to talk to these sorts and so my research is mostly watching them be total assholes.
But to lighten things up a bit:
If you have any more thoughts or comic gems in regards to this feel free to let us all know in the comments.

Here are two, and I hope to combine them with some other stanzas into something longer but also I just might talk about doing it.
did you see how fast he ran?
how hard she's standing still?
can you hear them quietly screaming?
bleeding all over their invisible blankets?
oh they carry them always.
don't forget, forget.
everyone's falling at that corner
it's what keeps the rent down
the cobblestones are a goldmine
respite from glistening others
and from hands reaching
the cobblestones are wet with winter
they are dry and brittle beneath
they aren't being tended
they are breaking slowly
