The Octagon of Merit

When two people square off in combat sports there is nowhere to hide. Skill and ability are all that matter to fans. That should apply to politics too.

While some may question my taste, I am a big fan of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). For those not in the know, that's mixed martial arts played out in a cage.

It's brutal, totally non PC and very entertaining.

There is something about two people testing their skills in such a raw arena that I find awesome. Clearly many others do too as the UFC is incredibly popular around the world.

The arena is open to both men and women. No one cares about skin colour, religion or sexuality. Every fighter is judged according to their results.
