Review by Zedd
I've recently gotten into MMA, via obnoxious boyfriend, and was forced to read Got Fight? by Forrest Griffin. I was more than pleasantly surprised to find that Griffin was not only hilarious (one of the funniest books I've ever read) but was also very informative when it came to all things fighting. The tips at the end of the book have helped me understand what I'm seeing, what kind of submissions are being used, when watching the fights. And I can now perform a perfect Asian Dart! I highly recommend this book for anyone getting into MMA, be it guy or unfortunate girlfriend.

I found the book pretty interesting. I am a huge MMA fan. Forrest Griffin is a n extremely funny author, and I think anyone, regardless of MMA knowledge, would love this book. Honestly, this book is probably most beneficial to anyone who knows little about mixed martial arts, and wants to understand what is going on a bit more.
