"Mixed martial arts has swept the nation and is the fastest-growing mainstream sport in the world. It has completely changed the perception of martial arts and spawned multimillion dollar clothing lines and, arguably, a lifestyle to boot. The fan base isn't composed of brutish characters; it is a diverse group of young and old, hip and successful adrenaline junkies. Fans can't seem to get enough and the sport can be readily watched on a half-dozen TV channels, on pay-per-view, and of course, live and in person. No Holds Barred is in it's third edition yet it includes a considerable amount of new material, the book - which has been called the 'bible for MMA' - is the most complete retelling of the history of MMA in America. The book also covers the Japanese MMA scene and details the popularity and history of the sport in other countries including Brazil and much of Europe."--Publisher's description.
