speech on mma

hey guys, im writing a persuasive contreversial speech on mma for my speech class. my position statement so far is, although it looks brutal, the sport of mma is not nearly as brutal as it seems.
any tips on where i should go from here? thanx in advance.

new updated position statement, although it looks brutal, the sport of mma has plenty of rules and regulations set forth in order to keep the safety of the fighters as the number one priority.

UG might be able to get you more help quicker.
