[[ Download ]] Raw Combat: The Underground World of Mixed Martial ArtsAuthor Jim Genia – Z55z.co

Genia isn t the best writer, but as a reporter of a time and place I ve never been he does the job well enough Essentially, he captures the grit of underground mma It s a fascinating and disappearing world, as mma becomeslegitimate across the country. The main failure of this book is that it simply doesn t deliver on its premise Only a small part of the book is actually about underground fighting and that isn t particularly interesting or compelling Most of the book is actually about life in the minor leagues of mixed martial arts which is a fine topic for a book but that wasn t why I wanted to read this. A unique look into a side of MMA that only a few know and only Genia can give Chris Palmquist, partner, MixedMartialArts Out Freakin Cold Forget pay per view Forget championship belts or sanctioning bodies This is Mixed Martial Arts combat in its purest, rawest form Follow Jim Genia into the illicit world of vale tudo anything goes Locations are always changing and known only to a few, from run down, shuttered gyms to speakeasy combat cages The ruthless damage exacted on the human body leaves a trail of hard won scars The fighters battle for everything but a payday, risking it all for honor and pride In a world of conformity, these are men of action who struggle against rules, selling out, and their own demons Jim Genia offers on the mat access to a brutal arena and the men who spill their blood there Captures the good, the bad, and the ugly Matthew Polly, author of American Shaolin It s a raw, wild scene and Genia takes you in his pocket for the ride Sam Sheridan, author of A Fighter s HeartPages of No Holds Barred Photos
