Mixed Martial Arts' Meteoric Rise

If Jon Wertheim's book, Blood in the Cage: Mixed Martial Arts, Pat Miletich, and the Furious Rise of the UFC, were given voice, it would surely taunt, "Go ahead and judge me by the cover, wimp." It's a sucker's bet, however, as the Sports Illustrated senior writer deftly takes us neck deep into what looks like a river of blood and rage, only to reveal on the far side something that will surely deck the quick-to-judge: that mixed martial arts (MMA) is highly skill-based and less dangerous than boxing. Maybe that's the point.
