Black Mesa Publishing and author Zac Robinson have partnered with Ranger Up Apparel Company to develop Ranger Up Presents Mixed Martial Arts IQ. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book will support Soldiers™ Angels and Hire Heroes USA.
Tampa, FL, March 29, 2010- Ranger Up Presents Mixed Martial Arts IQ is the second volume in the MMA IQ series. It consists of 250 questions and is filled with MMA trivia and history. Each set of ten questions represents a fight and upon completion the reader will have a 25-fight record.
Numerous UFC and MMA stars contributed to the book through interviews and sharing of photos, including: Matt Lindland, Chael Sonnen, Nate Quarry, Rich Franklin, Tim Kennedy, Brian Stann, Jorge Rivera, Tim Credeur, Pat Cote, Denis Kang, Gray Maynard, Jason Miller, and Mo Lawal. I doubt you could have found this many top athletes willing to participate from any other sport. It’s a credit to each one of these fine gentleman and the sport of MMA as a whole that they chose to be involved, says The Fight Professor, Stephen Quadros.
Ranger Up and Black Mesa publishing chose to support Soldiers™ Angels because its 225,000 plus members are committed to providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the U.S. Army, Marines, Air Force, Navy, Coast Guard, veterans, and their families.
The partnership also supports Hire Heroes USA because of its commitment to providing transition assistance to Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom veterans, specializing in the career placement of those injured or with any level of disability.
This is truly a unique partnership and unique book, says Fight! Magazine Editor in Chief Donovan Craig. It will certainly entertain MMA fans and it will make a difference in the lives of those who served.
Ranger Up Presents Mixed Martial Arts IQ can be purchased at a discounted rate at Blackmesabooks.com. It is also available at online retailers and in bookstores throughout the U.S.
