MMA history lesson

Hi, folks. I'm new to the board.

I'm taking a public speeking class this semester. We had to select a topic for the remaining three speeches we will be giving in the class. I chose MMA. Our first speech will be an informative one, so I basically am going to talk about the history and origins of MMA and some of the key personalities in the sport. I was wondering if anyone could offer any help as far as books go or something like that. What I plan on doing is starting out with Bruce Lee and his teaching, then working my way through the early days of Pancrase, UFC & K-1 (which I think all began in 1993). If anyone has any suggestions, or if there are earlier organizations I should highlight as the beginning of MMA, let me know. Thanks!
