"[A] gifted dramatist, [Merlino's] got me thinking seriously about the history, culture and business of professional crate fighting. " --The Unfamiliar York Occasions Brochure Audit Mixed martial arts is America's fastest-growing athletics--around the country, unfamiliar gyms open their gates and enthusiastic spectators tune in to UFC matches. Although some dismiss it as brutal buck, its fighters are among the most dedicated shoulder in any battleground. But MMA also takes a heavy toll on the body, and it's a rare fighter who can earn a living in the athletics's top circumstances. Beastie follows four high-level fighters at one of the athletics's elite gyms, Florida's American Top Company. Doug Merlino had unprecedented access, training alongside the men for two years, traveling to their matches, and eating in their homes. Mirsad Bektic, a young Bosnian homeless person who started in wrestling as a boy in Nebraska, dreams of acclaim. Jeff Monson, a battered veteran at forty-one, is an outspoken, tattooed terrorist enjoying a bizarre burst of hero in Russia. Steve Mocco is a foreigner--a former Olympic wrestler from a close-knit rational household. Finally there's Daniel Straus, who, from a life short on space, meets his practice up to power thesis. All will sense electrifying highs and race lows, and Merlino takes us along every dance of the practice while also examining the culture and meaning of professional crate fighting. A brochure for both the uninitiated and the hard-core stir up, Beastie seeks a fascinating journey into an often misunderstood division.
