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.

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!

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.

A great story about overcoming life's craziness. I have been a fan of Frank's since Pancrase. It was great to read his thoughts on many of the historic fights he was in, though I found those chapters and descriptions to be too short...esp when he slammed Igor Zinoviev. The overall prose is pretty good. The narrative of the last chapter or two starts to run out of steam. Perhaps Frank was running out of things to talk about. Nonetheless, this is an inspiring read and I highly recommend it.

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.

Frank Shamrocks story is incredible. He lived a life that most of us have never fathomed. This book is very well written. Frank's writing style is articulate and thoughtful. This is one of the best autobiographies by a sportsman that I have read.

Frank Shamrock is a great inspiration of how hard work can make you a legend, not just in asport, but in life. The book was very honest and tells the entire life story of one of the best warriors that ever graced the martial arts world.
