“Frank writes from the gut on how he was able to work and study to devise ways to defeat opponents who were bigger or stronger.” —George Foreman
Frank Shamrock won titles in all three major North American fight promotions and as Ultimate Fighting Champion was widely regarded as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. But first he suffered through a childhood of neglect, juvenile delinquency, and petty crime. He was eventually taken in by Bob Shamrock, who fostered hundreds of troubled boys—among them Frank’s adoptive older brother, Ken, a champion MMA fighter. But when Frank couldn’t afford to support his family, he turned to burglary and wound up in state prison. When he was released, Frank joined Ken in training. For the next two decades he dominated the entire sport. In this riveting book Shamrock gives vivid accounts of his battles both in and out of the ring.
