My Fight Your Fight by Ronda Rousey
'It was over in a blur. It took 14 seconds. Ronda Rousey, the Olympic medallist and reigning UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion, retained her mixed martial arts title in a brief flurry of fists, knees and chokeholds.'
In the span of a few years, Ronda Rousey has become the U.F.C.'s biggest star, an undefeated champion and an all-time great. She is as dominant, and in her own way as intimidating, as Mike Tyson was during his late-nineteen-eighties heyday.
In this inspiring autobiography, Ronda Rousey recalls her remarkable journey to the top of U.F.C, a brutal male-dominated world. Reliving the fights and the training, she describes how she overcame the suicide of her father, bullying, eating disorders, drink and drugs problems, as well as sexism. The first female UFC fighter, her supreme athletic ability is now being recognised more widely. She has been profiled by the New Yorker and the New York Times, and was recently voted the most dominant athlete in the world by Business Insider magazine, ahead of LeBron James and Cristiano Ronaldo. She is also starring in major Hollywood films, including most recently Fast and Furious 7.
In My Fight Your Fight Ronda Rousey also offers advice to the reader. She shares the habits that create champions, including her extreme diet regimen during fight week, her gruelling and unexpected workouts and the shocking mind games she plays before knocking out every opponent she's ever faced.
