About this Book

The first Mixed Martial Arts book to be featured in the new, exciting, and completely original Sports by the Numbers series!

THE SPORT: The short and tumultuous history of the UFC and modern Mixed Martial Arts is one of the greatest stories in all of sports. From its spectacular beginnings to its deathbed, to reemergence as the fastest growing sport in the world, Mixed Martial Arts covers it all.

THE FORMAT: The presentation created by the authors distinguishes Sports by the Numbers from everything else available today. The book offers ten compelling chapter introductions and one thousand numbers full of statistics, stories, and oddities that blast new fans with the force of a Bas Rutten liver shot, and wipe away the cobwebs of the diehards as if they were waking up from a "Cro Cop" head kick.

INTERACTIVE: Numerical entries tagged with SBTN All-Star or SBTN Hall of Fame logos are scattered throughout this book. These logos indicate that more information is available at our web site Readers and sports fans can then visit our site and participate in the SBTN blogs and conversations regarding those numbers, creating an interactive community.
