On November 12,1993, The Ultimate Fighting Championship destroyed the mystique of the martial arts by putting egos and black belts on the line in a reality-based setting. It was sold as a blood sport to bring in the masses, and it armed critics and politicians who sought to ban it. This is the true story of how mixed martial arts (MMA) evolved in the United States. Over 80 interviews, comprising 250 hours, were conducted to reveal the raw, behind-the-scenes nature of the world'ss most misunderstood sport. From the early days of The Ultimate Fighting Championship to the fight outside the ring to keep MMA alive, 'sNo Holds Barred: Evolution's describes the movement that changed martial arts forever. Author Clyde Gentry III uncovers fascinating details that led to the creation of these events in America, and his in-depth research provides the cold, honest truth. Highlights include candid interview material from the sport'ss greatest stars including Royce Gracie, Ken Shamrock, Mark Coleman, and Tank Abbott. And the original creators behind the UFC spaak out for the first time. Furthermore, the Russian mob makes trouble for another promotion held in the Ukraine.
