This lesson is all about English expressions that come from mixed martial arts and combat sports! But don’t assume all of the expressions I will teach you have to do with actual fighting. Rather, we use these expressions in everyday conversation when we talk about competition, challenges, and arguments. For example, when we say “throw your hat in the ring”, we are not talking about a boxing ring, but someone entering a competition or challenge. When we say “take it on the chin”, we are not talking about punches. It means to accept defeat without complaining. So as you can see, although some expressions come from the world of combat sports, they are commonly used in non-violent situations. Some other expressions we will look at include: “spoiling for a fight”, “the gloves are off”, “fight tooth and nail”, “uphill battle”, “throw in the towel”, “win hands down”, and more. So before you tap out, click the lesson, and do the quiz to test yourself.
