FIGHT FICTION: SUCKERPUNCH!

FIGHT FICTION: SUCKERPUNCH!

JEREMY BROWN

MIXED MARTIAL ARTS FICTION . . . I STILL PREFER BOXING, BUT I CAME TO APPRECIATE MMA FIGHTING AFTER SEEING THE RECENT FEATUR FILM WARRIOR AND THEN READING SAM SHERIDAN'S NON-FICTION WORK HEART OF A FIGHTER . . .

No head butts, groin strikes, eye gouges, or fishhooks. He’d go along with it, but heavyweight mixed martial artist Aaron “Woodshed” Wallace thinks they’re taking all the fun out of fighting.

Stuck on no-name cards for tiny organizations, Woody is trying to put his shady past behind him with help from his trainer and mentor, Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt Gil Hobbes. When Banzai Eddie Takanori—president of MMA’s largest organization, Warrior Inc.—offers Woody a short-notice fight against a highly favored poster boy, Woody sees his shot at salvation. By the time Woody figures out he’s just a pawn in a high-stakes game between psychopaths, he’s in way too deep.

Good thing he knows how to take a punch.
