Well, the time has come, folks. RAW COMBAT is ready and available for mass consumption. Go to Barnes & Noble, or Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Raw-Combat-Underground-World-Martial/dp/0806535040), and pick one up. And if you do read it, feel free to shoot me an email with your feedback - we'll discuss it here. I spared you all the play-by-play of the publishing process, but if anyone is curious, here's a handy-dandy thread on my favorite website about it: http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/mma.cfm?go=forum_framed.posts&forum=2&thread=1817488&page=1&pc=227.
You know, I've published over a thousand articles on MMA in the years I've been covering the sport, but somehow getting a book out there feels... different. I daresay, it feels "fucking awesome".
