I asked this question to some of MMA professionals. MMA fighting is
revered as a tough man's sport.
But toughness does not necessarily define manliness. So what does a real man need to exude
the essence of manhood?
"A real man always stands up for himself, he doesn't have to
act tough, takes care of his children and doesn't fight his pitbull." Miller an ex-US Marine had a lot of say
about manhood, using his grandfather as his role model. " My grandfather took care of 7 kids and
always demonstrated a backbone. "
A real man stays loyal to family and friends. I feel you have to put
everyone else first when it comes to the essentials of life. I feel that
a real man should be able to admit when he has fallen short and not make
excuses for himself. A real man gets up after getting knocked down and
gets up strong!!!"
