I know this isnt really mma related.. but it'll still blow ur mind

dubai is a city in the UAE and the way taht city is developing will blow ur mind

heres an example, between 15- 25% of all teh cranes in the world are in dubai, and there are more construction workers than residents

I can see being proud of beating so many former UFC Champions, but why brag about winning by DQ?

I don't mean to belittle Gracie, but that part of the article kinda irritated me.

Other than that it was fine.
