PostPosted by #Foxxc# » Tue Feb 14, 2012 10:57 pm

Hey guys,

Usually I paste the text to my articles in here for you guys to read but this time around I will be posting just the articles because I need to get as many hits on this as possible.

There's talk of if this series is successful of me expanding on this series, turning it into an E-Book and selling it on Amazon which would be huge but I need a bunch of hits on it so here is the link to part one -- Please give it a read, bonus points if you spread the link :)

Appreciated guys, plus it's better to read it on the site, you get pretty pictures that way :)

Part I: Inception of Judo & Kimura vs. Gracie

Part II: Inoki vs. Ali & JMMAs formative years

Part III: Pride early days & decline of Pancrase

Cool stuff mate, I +1'd it and "Liked"/Shared it.

A rather intresting read, I'd be happy to illegally download it if a book ever does come out. Keep on rockin'!
