Forrest Griffin is the light heavyweight champ and star of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC)‚ the most prestigious league of the fastest growing sport in the world‚ mixed martial arts. He also happens to have the most booming personality of any American fighter and can take a punch (or a kick) better than any of his fellow competitors. Now‚ the man that Mickey's Malt Liquor has dubbed--after a national poll--the most popular fighter in the UFC--will offer personal stories from inside and outside the Octagon to give readers a glimpse into the mind of a mixed martial artist and illustrate his 50 principles of being a fighter‚ with topics ranging from mentally preparing before a professional fight to kicking it into high gear when your ring is the street.
Forrest came to the attention of millions of fans when he won the season finale of the first season of "The Ultimate Fighter‚" the mixed-martial arts reality show that propelled the UFC into the pop culture mainstream (and that today draws more than 2 millions viewers an episode). The pages in this book will feature his boisterous personality and trademark sense of humor to demonstrate to readers that being a fighter takes more than simply an adrenaline rush--it takes focus‚ a little cunning‚ and the intelligence to know that the best way to avoid serious injury is to stay away from "Rampage" Jackson's right hand‚ bro.
