“The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Ultimate Fighting”, which was authored by top UFC middleweight Rich Franklin and John Merz, will be released on September 4th.
On the surface most expect the book to be very basic covering the concepts behind the sport, its history, rules, and scoring but the book has taken a more technical stance on the sport also discussing training, nutrition, and techniques.
Both authors of the books have the credentials to make this book legitimate. Franklin, a former UFC Middleweight Champion, is still a top contender in the division and will challenge Anderson Silva for the middleweight title in October at UFC 77. Merz has authored six novels and is a martial artist and ninjutsu practitioner.
The book will typically sell for $19.95 but is currently on sale through Amazon.com for $13.57.
