This week we’re jumping into the Octagon to learn all about the booming sport of mixed martial arts and giving away a free copy of Ultimate Fighting: The Brains and Brawn of Mixed Martial Arts by Patrick Jones!

What if a boxer and a wrestler fought? Who would win? What if a fighter skilled in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tangled with a foe trained in traditional judo? These were questions that fans of combat sports asked for years, but how to settle it? The answer: mixed martial arts.

In this action-packed book, you’ll meet the superstars and record holders of mixed martial arts, get behind-the-scenes details about some of its most dramatic moments, and find out what the future holds for this radical hybrid sport.
