BEAST. Blood, Struggle, and Dreams at the Heart of Mixed Martial Arts

New York: Bloomsbury, (2015). First edition. Hardcover. The first book to bring readers deep inside a stellar mixed martial arts gym, Beast shows exactly what it takes to reach the top of this exacting sport. Doug Merlino spent two years at Florida's American Top Team, living, eating, and training alongside some of the world's best fighters, and traveled with them to fights around the world. The result is the most unvarnished look at the sport yet, with its electrifying highs and devastating lows. For both the uninitiated and for hardcore fans, Beast offers an intense journey into an often misunderstood world. This copy is briefly inscribed by the author on the title page, and, on the dedication page is another inscription, much longer, written and signed by the inscribee. 252pp illustrated from black and white photographs.
