Pit Fighters: Baptism by Fire

Here below, I’m proud to encourage someone – Bowie Ibarra –  with the same interests as mine: Combat Sports.

I presents you his book about Pit Fighters and the good 
ole early UFC days. When the UFC was great!


Five fighters. Five styles. One goal.

It’s the 1990’s, the advent of mainstream money fights.

They are masters of their respective arts: Kung-Fu, Western Boxing, Sambo, Lucha Libre, street fighting.

Their paths cross in the south Texas town of San Uvalde, assembling as a stable of fighters under the banner of a risk-taking entrepreneur. Combining their diverse backgrounds and unique skills, the men form a team united in one goal: glory in the new sport of mixed martial arts.

But will their unity and skills be enough to overcome their individual shortcomings, demons, and doubts when they are locked in a cage and tested by some of the deadliest fighters in the world? There will be only one supreme champion, and it will take more than skill, guts, and determination to succeed among a special and ancient breed of warriors: Pit Fighters.

From the Author

I’ve always loved combat sports.  From boxing to pro-wrestling to martial arts. When ‘Street Fighter II’ came to the Pizza Hut in my hometown of Uvalde, I loved it.  And who could forget ‘Bloodsport’ or ‘Enter the Dragon’?

This book is an ode to one of my all-time loves of my life:  fights!  The story was a complete joy to write, and I’m excited to share it with you today.

If you’re a fan of any and all combat sports, I hope you’ll give it a chance.
