The Underground World of Mixed Martial Arts
by Jim Genia
A unique look into a side of MMA that only a few know and only Genia can give. —Chris Palmquist, partner, MixedMartialArts.com
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 Heart
