In the shadows of the arena a hulking figure stands, draped in a South African flag. After saying a prayer, his face is smeared in Vaseline, and he steps into an Octagon fenced by chain-link. This is the famed Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), probably the globeโ€™s most brutal sport, and South African Dricus โ€˜Stillknocksโ€™ du Plessis one of its best exponents. Itโ€™s taken Dricus months of training to get here, but these days heโ€™s joined at the UFCโ€™s regular fight nights by his protรฉgรฉ, Cameron Saaiman. At 22, his young understudy has already put on some dominant performances in the Octagon and is being billed as the sportโ€™s future. As he and Dricus prepare for UFC 285, Carte Blanche is invited into their secretive fight camp where their physical and mental preparation pushes them to their limits.
