New Year's is a time for fresh starts, new beginnings. It's a time to look disdainfully at the person you have been, and look longingly into the idealistic future at the person you will become.
For most of us, our New Year's resolutions are relatively simple and disappointingly predictable. Go to the gym more, floss at least three times a week, be nicer to our family members, stop staggering onto the porch in your bathrobe while yelling obscenities at the annoying little kids down the street. That last one might just be me.
But for MMA fighters, resolutions are a trickier business. Sometimes the changes they need to make are right in front of them, clear as day to everyone but themselves. With that in mind, it seems only right to offer them a little friendly help. It is the holiday season, after all.
