MEMOIR

The Most Fun You’ll Have at a Cage Fight is the story of Chad Douglas, a Boeing scientist by day and amateur mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter by night. It has action. It has intrigue. It has wit. It has something called TURN ON: A Love Drink.

 For two years, Rory Douglas wrote a column for McSweeney’s called Notes from a Spectator at Amateur Mixed Martial Arts Events tracking his brother’s career as a fighter. The Most Fun You’ll Have at a Cage Fight is an expanded memoir and MMA primer, exploring the world of amateur MMA in the Seattle suburbs.

 Also making appearances in this book: 

  • A history of mankind’s quest to uncover the toughest person on earth, and how that quest produced mixed martial arts as we know it.
  • The mothers who loyally watch their sons get punched in the face.
  • The secret to losing 20 pounds in two days.
  • A girl’s eye getting lodged a quarter inch deeper in its socket.
  • Someone saying, “That foot stomp was monstrous. Gave me a hard-on.”
  • Fighter Phoenix Jones, who retired from MMA to become a real-life, crime-fighting superhero.

All this—and more!—while pursuing the big question of why one person would volunteer to fight another person in a cage, for free.

The Most Fun You’ll Have at a Cage Fight is a real-life sports story about what happens when a normal person attempts to become a professional athlete, and an exploration of exploding interest and participation in MMA. This isn’t just Chad’s narrative—this guide also presents the stories of a community of fighters, coaches, and fans who have all been drawn to MMA for vastly different reasons.
