A rare article that makes no "human cockfighting" references and doesn't say anything really negative about MMA, cool. It's also a good way to help people understand that many fighters have day jobs too like the rest of us, it's not just a "train and fight" lifestyle.

Since December 2006, Patterson has won four of his five fights, beating opponents with moves described as choke, submission and guillotine.
