"Is that all you say LightBug?",I asked. Everypony laugh."Hey i'm not like you humans I come from Vestroia.",LightBug said. I logged out of the bakugan chat and went outside."I wonder who wants to Bakugan battle?",I asked. Just then a battler wanted to brawl me."I want to Brawl you BlazingFire Celestia.",The brawler said. "What's your name short stuff?",I asked the brawler."My name is Sweet Death.",SD said. I was excited that someone wanted to brawl."Ok what attribute are you?",I asked."Aquos.",SD said. "Ok.",I said while getting out my field card."Field open!",We said. The field opened.

Before the popularity of MMA boomed in the United States, it was a upstart sport that had many obstacles to overcome. This book chronicles the early struggles of MMA and showcases the athletes that paved the way for the MMA world. This book is must read for any MMA fan.

The author does a good job providing an overview of the development of MMA in the US. He provides background on the inception of the UFC and its evolution up to the purchase by the Fertitta brothers in early 2001 (right before UFC 30). [And as MMA fans know, the Fertitta brothers and Dana White did much to get the sport sanctioned and back on cable distribution -- contributing to its rapid growth in recent years.] The book also provides some bios on the early pioneers of MMA. Good reading overall for the MMA fan.
