Hey thisMMAlife community! I don't know about you but I find that some of the MMA books on the market (mostly biographies) are immersive reads, the level of authenticity, grit, stories of overcoming adversity are just unparalleled in sport. So I thought I would kick-off this discussion to help build a list of some of the best MMA books out there, so if your best MMA book is missing, then add a comment and we will include it.

Dan Hardy, Part Reptile

Dan Hardy lifts the lid on his own career and writes with insight and eloquence on all things MMA and UFC, the brutal and ever-evolving sport that launched such superstars as Conor McGregor, Michael Bisping, Georges St-Pierre, Nate Diaz and Amanda Nunes.

Michael Bisping, Quitters Never Win

At the age of eight, Michael Bisping began his training in martial arts. By the time he was 15, he was fighting in his first no holds barred competition. When he turned professional and joined the UFC he was sure about one thing: only a world championship title would do."

John Kavanagh, Win or Learn

"John Kavanagh tells his own remarkable life story - which is at the heart of the story of the extraordinary explosion of MMA in Ireland and globally. As the trainer of the world's most charismatic champion, his gym has become a magnet for talented fighters from all over the globe. Kavanagh's portrait of Conor McGregor, who he has seen in his lowest moments, as well as in his greatest triumphs - is a revelation."

Help us keep adding to the list, we are always on the lookout to inspire MMA athletes with stories and biographies of MMA athletes that have made it, against all the odds
