UFC Fighters on the Biggest Misconceptions They Face and Why They Risk it All

MMA fighters know what they are getting themselves into when they step into the cage.

“You just go in there and beat the hell out of somebody,” said fighter Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone.

But what really bothers UFC superstars Travis Browne, ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone and Miesha Tate are not the punches they take during fight, but the critics who they feel don’t understand the sport.

“You know, we train every day. It’s not like we are just a bunch of barbarians in a cage”, said Cerrone.

“I think the biggest misconception about MMA fighters is that we are all angry and we are fueled by anger to fight each other and realistically it’s not”, said Tate.

These professional fighters and UFC President Dana White spoke to AMERICA’s Johanna Usma about how they deal with the misconceptions and why they risks their lives to be the best.

Usma also spoke to Jorge Ramos about why MMA has become so popular:
