Over the past few years, I've become a fan mixed martial arts. While some will write it off as a blood sport, the fighters themselves are highly trained and although it may not look like it once the fists start flying, they go into each match with a game plan, looking for an opening to land a calculated punch or kick.

How some of them continue to stand after taking a well placed hit is beyond me. Even a light graze by one of these guys or girls would have me on the ground in the fetal position crying for mommy (and probably wetting myself).

Check out what happens to someone's face when a punch is landed.
