The concept of ‘survival of the fittest’ is a neat idea, but it was clearly flawed for 21st century living. While some people may be lean, fit, perhaps even well-trained for any outdoor sport/activity, we live in a society where little of that matters anymore. If you drop a random Kardashian into the forest, regardless of how many years of Pilates they’ve got tucked away in their skirts, they’ll probably die of infection the first time they break a nail and be eaten by wolves a few hours later. I’m fairly confident you could say the same thing about most athletes too. In the age of satellite phones, imperishable canned foods, and antibiotics, perhaps the latest revision of Darwin’s ‘Theory of Evolution’ should reflect our new societal standards by with using the ‘survival of the most resourceful’ slogan. Most of what you’ve just read in this paragraph is actually irrelevant because it doesn’t apply to MMA fighters. Those dudes are prepared for anything. Darwin’s theory of MMA Evolution actually has it’s own chapter, and here’s the excerpt. Props to Reddit for the find.
