The Cage

One-on-one combat is a primordial ritual that takes us back to the dawn of humanity. MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) is the modern version of the Greek pankration, the education of the will, a psycho-physical preparation for war, where combat is a metaphor for life and one of the last sacred, almost ecstatic, rites of our time.
