I won this book from goodreads, which was exciting. I was interested in it because my husband and I have written a screenplay about the UFC. I am not really a fan of the UFC, but my husband is.

There are many great quotes that can be used as motivation. I am a basketball coach, and will use some of these quotes. Overall, this will be a great book I can thumb through every once ...more

Yes, this is a picture book. But much like some Japanese philosophy works I've read there is much truth hidden in some of the short quotes that caption each picture. The forward by Sam Sheridan is worth the price of the book.

This is a picture book; A line or a quote from the fighters is not an interview.
