Last night we celebrated my fiancée’s cousin’s ninth birthday. I found out that his latest interest is professional wrestling, so I spent most of the night body slamming him into a beanbag chair. I’m no wrestling connoisseur, but I know a few moves–it was just about the best birthday present I could have given him. When I was growing up, it was a semi-open secret that professional wrestling was stage. Now it’s fully acknowledged. If you want the real stuff, you go to Ultimate Fighting Championship, a company that “revolutionized the fight business, and today stands as the world’s leading MMA promoter.” UFC is based in Las Vegas, NV, and has developed from a fringe sport that got its start in the early 90s to a mainstream sport that gets coverage on ESPN. The story of how UFC went from being outlawed in most states to being widely accepted is fascinating, which is why I highly recommend that you read the Wikipedia article on UFC. It’s a long story, but it will give you insight into both politics and business.
I’ll admit that I haven’t watched much more than a few highlights of matches on YouTube, but it’s hard to argue with the fact that in may ways MMA is the ultimate sport. It’s about as basic and primal as you can get, as it’s a true battle for physical domination over another person. That kind of thing will always be interesting to people, and that’s why UFC has grown into a business that generates more than half a billion dollars in annual revenue. If you’d like to be a part of this growing sport, take a look at UFC’s Careers page. Right now they have some great opportunities for new and recent grads including:
