9780061721717: Got Fight?: The 50 Zen Principles of Hand-to-Face Combat

A New York Times Bestseller, Got Fight? is an hysterical, entertaining, and in-your-face guide to fighting from the most enigmatic and unpredictable fighter in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Forrest Griffin is the light-heavyweight champion of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and was the winner of the first season of Spike TV’s The Ultimate Fighter; in Got Fight?, he shows you how he did it. With Erich Krauss, Muay Thai fighter and co-author of “The Prodigy” B.J. Penn’s Mixed Martial Arts: The Book of Knowledge.

From the Back Cover:

Wondering why you should purchase this book when there are other titles on the shelves written by much higher-caliber fighters? Well, Forrest Griffin is not as good-looking as those guys. He's not as smart as them. He's also not as athletically endowed. And let's face it, neither are you. Those other fighters are pretty much better than you in every way. But you can actually aspire to be as good as Forrest one day. Why? Because he is nothing special, just like you.

Forrest is not a martial artist. He's a fighter, and this book was written for his kin. If you're a hillbilly like Forrest and you get off on having your face rearranged, Got Fight? is for you. This is a manifesto more strategic than Sun Tzu's The Art of War, more philosophical than Bruce Lee's Tao of Jeet Kune Do, more powerful than a well-lubricated locomotive.

In these pages you will learn about true mental toughness—whether it's scraping it out in the Octagon or picking up chicks. You will learn about the mental defects that made Forrest Griffin into the abomination he is today and how you can use your shortcomings to become equally horrible. You will learn the essential tactics of hand-to-hand combat as well as how to defend yourself in the event of a sword attack. Never been attacked by a sword? You need this book worse that we thought.

Still not convinced? Don't worry. Even if you find that the book sucks, it will be no worse than having sex with Forrest Griffin. You'll feel a small prick and some minor discomfort, and then it will all be over.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Got Fight?: The 50 ZEN Principles of Hand-toface Combat, Forrest Griffin, Erich Krauss, Forrest came to the attention of millions of fans when he won the season finale of the first season of "The Ultimate Fighter", the mixed-martial arts reality show that propelled the UFC into the pop culture mainstream (and that today draws more than 2 millions viewers an episode). The pages in this book will feature his boisterous personality and trademark sense of humour to demonstrate to readers that being a fighter takes more than simply an adrenaline rush - it takes focus, a little cunning, and the intelligence to know that the best way to avoid serious injury is to stay away from 'Rampage' Jackson's right hand, bro.
