Ian McCall and Joseph Benavidez fought their hearts out at UFC 156, but when Benavidez heard his friend was going through hard times in his personal life, he wrote him a poem.

THE ENTERTAINER

Blood and sweat, sometimes tears,
Battered hands, countless fears,
Highest highs, lowest lows,
Shattered dreams, the hurt just grows.

Your smile shields the pain you hide,
All the while you're dead inside;
Your faith is absent, your will gives out,
Now clear your mind, erase the doubt.

Everything that you have gave,
To feel self worth, that’s all you crave;
The world stage, this is your role,
You break your heart, you sell your soul.

Stay the course, endure the pain,
You were born to entertain…

-Joseph Benavidez

Really cool. Things like this is what makes me love this sport. You don't see this kind of stuff in other combat sports, or other sports. Classy guys. Both are great ambassadors for the sport! Phone Post

Nice to see the human side of the fighters, something outside of the sport. Great show of class.

Exactly. This sport is linked to a history of combat that predates any other contrived game's history. This is also why the metaphor of fighting in a cage is more relevant to any average person's life struggles compared to, say football. You're only as good as the current day and in the end it is your own courage and foresight and hard work that makes the results you get.

Joe B said he wrote that for himself after the Mighty Mouse loss. He read it on The MMA Hour last week. Seems like it relates to Creepy tho...or any fighter really. Phone Post
