About the Author

Forrest Griffin is one of the top-ranked light-heavyweight mixed martial artists in the world. He won the first season of The Ultimate Fighter in 2005 and has been one of the most beloved UFC fighters ever since. He's a political science graduate from the University of Georgia and a former police officer, and can grow an awfully full set of muttonchops. But down, ladies; Forrest and his main squeeze, Jaime, live in Las Vegas.

Product Description

Wondering why you should purchase this book when there are other titles on the shelves written by much higher-caliber fighters? Well, Forrest Griffin is not as good-looking as those guys. He's not as smart as them. He's also not as athletically endowed. And let's face it, neither are you. Those other fighters are pretty much better than you in every way. But you can actually aspire to be as good as Forrest one day. Why? Because he is nothing special, just like you.

Forrest is not a martial artist. He's a fighter, and this book was written for his kin. If you're a hillbilly like Forrest and you get off on having your face rearranged, Got Fight? is for you. This is a manifesto more strategic than Sun Tzu's The Art of War, more philosophical than Bruce Lee's Tao of Jeet Kune Do, more powerful than a well-lubricated locomotive.

In these pages you will learn about true mental toughness—whether it's scraping it out in the Octagon or picking up chicks. You will learn about the mental defects that made Forrest Griffin into the abomination he is today and how you can use your shortcomings to become equally horrible. You will learn the essential tactics of hand-to-hand combat as well as how to defend yourself in the event of a sword attack. Never been attacked by a sword? You need this book worse that we thought.

Still not convinced? Don't worry. Even if you find that the book sucks, it will be no worse than having sex with Forrest Griffin. You'll feel a small prick and some minor discomfort, and then it will all be over.

"Hilarity" 2009-09-21
By Arthur Kicker (Your Mom's House)
If you like Forrest Griffin, then you'll love this book. If you don't like him, you might change your mind after reading his book "Got Fight?".

Its kind of an odd book to describe. Its 50 (fairly short)chapters on what Forrest considers the principles of fighting. And it is absolutely hilarious. I was expecting a guide about training and fighting techniques but, while the book does have a little bit of that, its really a lot of Forrest making jokes. It is funny. Very funny.

If you are a Forrest Griffin fan, you have got to get this book. Its great.

Forrest has always been a fun personality to keep up with. I saw his book in the store and said let me read a few pages... the rest is history. His perspective is pretty interesting... funny, hardworking, determined, crazy, down to earth guy. You really get to know forrest well from this read... and you will have a greater appreciation for the art and lifestyle of MMA.

Get it.

"funny" 2009-09-14
By Stephen Roberts
pretty funny at times if you have a warped sense of humor but i dont think its much of a book realy. its all over the place and leaves you wondering what he could be thinkingforest had better not quit his day job in the ufc and had better train hard as he has no future in writting but i like the way he brawls. its the first and probably the last book i'll ever have to take a test before i can read it lol funny book though he might make it in being a ufc commentator or maybe figure skating or golfink get it?

"Laughed at every page! A winner!" 2009-09-11
By Kathryn Y. Colvard (Wake Forest, NC)
As the mother of an All American high school wrestler who also takes Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and as an avid MMA fan, I cannot recommend this book enough. I laughed out loud at every page. Griffin has a delightful, sarcastic wit. His attitude is not for the faint of heart, for sure, but if you are a tough person raising tough athletes, you cannot go wrong with this book!
