`There's more than a few instances in this biography of UFC cult favourite Mark Hunt that make you shake your head in can't-make-this-stuff-up disbelief? - Inside Sport

A powerful story of sadness, hope, pride, honour and triumph from the real-life Rocky!

Raw, confronting and honest, UFC champion Mark Hunt's inspiring autobiography shows it is possible to defy the odds and carve a better life. Born into a Mormon Samoan family, Hunt details his harrowing early life, his troubled teen years, and his angry youth with no apparent future.

After being plucked from an Auckland street fight and dropped into his first kickboxing bout, Mark went on to achieve unprecedented success in Australian and New Zealand combat sports. In an ongoing career that has spanned the globe, Mark Hunt has been in some of the UFC, Pride and K-1's most memorable battles. But in some ways those fights pale in comparison to that which he has overcome out of the ring and cage.

As fearless with his opinions as he is in the Octagon, Mark pulls no punches in revealing the highs and lows of his extraordinary life.

    Very heartfelt and as real as it gets. It's a true testament that all things are possible through God. And Julie's impact is undoubtedly a major factor in Mark's success. May God continue to bless you and yours.

    I've been a fan of Mark Hunt's for a while now, but missed the earlier part of his career before he came to the UFC. This book fills in those gaps for the newer fans like me, and also tells the tragic story of his horrific childhood. While some of it is almost hard to read, it is an amazing story of survival, perseverance, and grace. Thanks for having the courage to tell your story Mark!
  • One of the most honest books ever written
