Writing about MMA fighters is a natural fit for me because I love the sport! Nonstop action with highly trained (and usually very buff) hunks utilizing a variety of disciplines. It’s not just punching, kicking, submissions or wrestling/grappling. It’s all that wrapped up together to create an elite competitor. How fun is that?
I also respect fighters. Think about the self-confidence and ability it takes to step into the cage surrounded by lights and music and screaming crowds of fans. Leading up to a fight, competitors have to maintain a strict diet and workout regime, which shows a lot of control. And most interviews prove the guys are really nice, intelligent and polite. Sure, they talk smack for a fight, but that’s just for fun and to hype up the event. There is very little bad sportsmanship in MMA.
These are real men with amazing ability and loads of confidence—alphas through and through. And just look at the amazing covers my publisher has given me! I’m a cover fanatic, and I think these are some of the best. I hope you enjoy the covers as much as I do, and I doubly hope you enjoy reading the stories as much as I enjoyed writing them.
Which of Lori’s MMA covers do you think is the biggest knockout? Cast your vote in the poll!
