Everyone fights for something. These guys just do it better than anyone else. This is the ultimate guide to the ultimate competition - the hardest men in the hardest sport in the world. It offers a profile of the 10 greatest fighters in UFC (Ultimate Fighting Competition)'s history to become mixed martial art's "baddest dudes". By exploring the lives, careers, fights and accomplishments of the UFC's most prominent athletes, Jeremy Wall aims to promote debate among the fans of mixed martial arts, rather than offering an official statistic-driven list. "UFC'S Ultimate Warriors" is anything but - it lauds each man equally for his determination, drive and ability to take a hurricane-force beating as it does for recorded victories, leaving the ground it lays well open for endless passionate arguments over the ins and outs of the selection. So, just how influential was Royce Gracie's jiu-jitsu to the world of martial arts? How popular is Ken Shamrock, really? Who else can compare to Randy Couture's accomplishments in the UFC? With each featured biography, a career and its impact on the world of mixed martial arts is broken down and analysed with an enthusiastic eye.
Fans of extreme combat need look no further for an authoritative and engaging look at the sport of mixed martial arts, and the titans who make it the most exciting fight discipline on the planet.
