Tapped Out: An Odyssey in Mixed Martial Arts

Author Matthew Polly has spent two years traversing the globe learning mixed martial arts from the best trainers. As he spoke with trainers and fighters he learned how the sport evolved from "human cockfighting" to one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Polly becomes a convert to the sport, which was once denounced as extreme and barbaric.
