There are a few of the MMA fighters that have written their life story books and I enjoyed reading them. I got to thinking of what other fighters I would like to read about and Nick Diaz came to mind. I think that would be an interesting read!!!!!!

Who would you like to read about??

Who reads books this century :p

Well if Machida had a book or maybe does and I knew about it I'd read it.

I mostly read fantasy but I dont really think any fighter could make a good book that really worth reading. People who would read another fighters book would probably just be the hardcore fans.

I just dont see myself spending a lot of hours on a mediocre book when they could probably make a documentary that would only last 1-1.5 hours.

Matt Hughes' book. Just so I could read about the street fight in London, where Liddell was KO'ing people standing with his back against the wall:thumbsup:

Piece from the book. I love the way Chuck's randomly ko'ing people that are coming at him:fight02:
and then tough guy Tito gets knocked the f out and then face stomped like a bitch.

from hughes book.
“So it’s four o’clock in the morning and they had everybody leave the club, right? Well, the UFC had bussed us all over there but they didn’t have a bus to take us back. It’s down to Mark, me [Pat Miletich], Tony Fryklund, Chuck Liddell, Tito [Ortiz] and Lee Murray. Lee Murray’s crew was still there, Tito’s crew was also still there. I walked out the back door to go in the alley. Tito’s buddy jumped on my back. He jumped on my back and acted like he had me in a choke hold, just messing around, you know? Then I felt him get ripped off of me. I turned around and Tony Fryklund had HIM in a chokehold, and was really choking him. The guy looked like a mouse that just got trapped in a mousetrap; his eyes were popping out and obviously he wasn’t breathing. Tony thought he was actually attacking me – that’s the only reason he did it. So I turned round and told Tony to let him go, and Tony let him go. Then Tito’s buddy turned around and basically said ‘what the f*** are you doing?’ to Tony. Well, when he said that, one of Lee Murray’s buddies, that one guy who kind of took care of us all week long, thought this guy was actually trying to fight us, so he ran out of the crowd and cracked this kid with a right hand and knocked him out cold…. The entire alley erupted into a huge brawl. I was just standing there, and there were bodies flying all over the place. I was confused how it all happened, because it happened so fast. I was standing there with my mouth open like ‘what the hell is going on?’ I looked over and Chuck Liddell was with his back against the wall, knocking people out that were trying to go after him. Then I looked over and there’s Tito directly past me, taking his coat off, going after Lee Murray, and Lee Murray’s backing up the alley taking his jacket off. Both their jackets come off, and Tito throws a left hook at Lee Murray and misses, and right as he missed, Lee Murray counters with, like, a five-punch combo, landed right on the chin, and knocked Tito out. OUT. Tito fell face-first down to the ground, and then Lee Murray stomped him on the face a couple of times with his boots.â€

First name that same to mind was Chuck Liddell, but now I think about it more I'm not sure how interesting that would be.

as Ironic as this is, the 2 guys I dislike the most in the history of the sport I think would have the 2 most interesting books, so Tito and Brock I think could be a very interesting read,

Other names on a list that I would probabally read are, Rampage, Bisping, Machida and Wandy.in fact Wandy may just be my No.1 choice, coem to think Paul Daley would be another great choice right up there reading about his success in Kick Boxing as well as MMA.

Evan Tanner's would have been great, the guy was an adventure junkie and when he got into MMA it was just supposed to be a story to tell his grand kids about someday.

Sakuraba would be an interesting story I think.

Marc Coleman, he has been around since the tournaments and is still fighting. Just finished Bret Hart's, I know its pro wrestling, but it was very good. Read Matt Hughes's but it was boring imho and I like Hughes (ducking the bottles).

Now they would be some interesting autobiography's to read, Sadly we will never get to read Evan Tanners RIP, but maybe someone close to him can write a biography for him.

Lee Murrays would be pretty interesting.

Still waiting for Bas' pop-up book of bar brawling.

GSP 'ave a book? Are there lots of pictures?

I'd read Forrest's book, although I heard there wasn't much book for your money, and Wandy's book, and Chuck's book.
