Maggie Hendricks of Yahoo Sports provides ten reasons why you should cheer for WEC Bantamweight champion Miguel Torres. The following represents one of the main reasons I love MMA:

He charges $100 for private lessons. $100 to work out with one of the top ten pound-for-pound fighters.

It's not necessarily that you can pay $100 to workout with a fighter the caliber of Miguel Torres. It's the humbleness and down to earth attitude that most MMA fighters like Torres display. I've had the pleasure of interviewing several well known fighters, and our conversations have gone about the same as they do with my brother. Manny Tapia(Torres's opponent on tonight's WEC show) is the same exact way, which was pretty surprising considering his nickname is "The Mangler." What other sport can say that?
