Frank Shamrock is probably the most interesting person in MMA. There are so many defining layers to him. He may not be the most outspoken fighter in the sport, but when he has something to say, he means it with all his heart. What other former UFC champion has the guts to take a stance on what he believes is the right direction in which MMA should be portrayed and never waiver, even if it means being banished from the UFC. If you are at all interested in martial arts or an inspirational story this book is a must. 5 STARS!

Frank Shamrock really takes you behind the scenes of all his difficulties growing up, his problems with his brother Ken, and with the UFC. I didn't kmow as much about Frank as I do about other mma fighters because the UFC kind of pretends he don't exist. He's never been on a countdown show or Primetime special; but through this book we get to learn about him. Frank is one of the top UFC and mma fighters of all time and I'd highly recomend buying this book to learn about him.

I believe you only live once, yet I still have a gut feeling that our souls may be re-incarnated from another era. If that is the case, Frank Shamrock was definitely a warrior in another life. Although he struggled as a young child and teenager, I believe his circumstances are what drove him to be a better person, an advocate for bullying and maintain a dedicated level of business etiquette that defines him and his brand. MMA allowed him to create the man he is today, the wonderful father, husband and brother he strives for in the future. Love you, Brother.

Won't be the last time I read this book...

I'd always seen Frank Shamrock as a cocky, confident and physically-gifted MMA fighter.. on top of the world

Had no notion his early life was so messed up

"Uncaged" should be a by-word for perseverance and the strength of human spirit

One snappy Marine Corps salute!

In this autobiography Frank Shamrock tells in all honesty about his disturbing life as he grew up. He admits the mistakes he has made in life and makes the reader aware of the ordeals he had to endure as a child. He truely became a legend against the odds, and the reader gets to understand how insignificant his career losses is compared to how he was thrown into the deep end as a fighter, winning and losing fights on his way to becoming a great fighter. One is not guaranteed to admire Frank as a person by reading his autobiography, but you will admire his feat of not losing a fight in a decade. This autobiography is can be used as a motivational book on how to succeed against the odds.

Great book..not the best writing but what does one expect from a fighter. I liked Frank Shamrock before but this solidified it. If there becomes a mma hall of fame,he is at the top of choices.

this book ranks up there with Chuck's, Jens', Big John's and Pat Miletich's (Blood in the Cage) books. An honest rendering of the best and worst times in his life.
