    Actually, the book comes with a strap, so you can wear it with pride.

    I was thinking of buying Chuck Lidells book at Barnes Nobles the other day. I decided not to waste the cash yet and see if it's worth the read.
     
  11. I'm gonna get it. I'll let you know how it is.

    Only about 1/4 the way through, havn't had much time to sit down and take a big chunk out of it, but it's pretty good so far.

    Tims book would be a long read about how his belt gave him superpowers during sex, and he only lost because he wasn't wearing it during the fight.

    Matt's book made Tim Sylvia sound like an insecure annoying overall nice guy and made him seem more of an arrogant prick.

    Chucks book isn't bad. Quick read. He writes like he talks so it takes a bit to get used to that.

    Unless you are a really big Chuck fan the begining isn't really that interesting, but near the end about the behind the scenes UFC stuff is really cool.

    Im currently using it as a mouse pad :run:
