When the first Cage Fighting event debuted in September 1993 many people criticized the brutality involved in having two men engage in no holds barred fist fighting. The UFC sparked a revolution in combat sports and has become a worldwide phenomenon to the point where it s pushed boxing out as the top fighting sport in the US. In the US and Japan, cage fighting has climbed to celestial heights because of regular crowd attendance in excess of 20,000. In the UK, UFC, without even scratching the surface of the English market and without even naming who is on the fight card, is outselling events headlined by Amir Khan, and cards that feature both Hatton and Calzage. This is with higher ticket prices and less time for marketing. UFC 75 held at the O2 arena in London on September 2007 became the most watched UFC/MMA event anywhere. With over 3OO million fans in over 130 countries with its abundance of high profile fighters there are no signs that cage fighting will slow its meteoric rise. In this fascinating and gripping book, the first of its kind ever to be published by a British journalist, the author examines not only the glory of this fast growing and dangerous sport but all the chaos that goes on behind the scenes and the life styles of the herculean super star fighters. Included are gritting insider accounts of some of the legendary major fights. You will discover the type of commitment it takes to survive in The Cage.
