(Matt Hughes “taking it” from GSP.)
We just got the NY Times bestseller list in, and MADE IN AMERICA is #21! Thanks to all the fans for making this happen.
I did in fact go to the New York Times website and did not see the former UFC welterweight champ’s book listed there. I was ready to scream bullshit, or cry wolf, or whatever else it is someone roars when they think they’ve been duped – or want to start a revolution. Then an edit popped up on Matt’s blog and it appears he may have pulled it off.
EDIT: If you go to the NY Times website, you will see a list posted there that is dated January 20th, 2008 and MADE IN AMERICA is not on that list. That list only reflects sales for the week ending January 5th. My book should be on the list for the week ending January 12th, which hasn’t been posted to their website yet; but it should be in a week or two.
A book by an MMA fighter cracking the top 25 of the NY Times Best Seller List? Scandalous. It only paves the way for Chuck Liddell‘s book, “Iceman: My Fighting Life”, to smash literary records and find a place in the Oprah Winfrey Book Club. I can’t wait to see Chuck crying like a baby while sitting on the Oscar nominee’s sofa – which smells suspiciously like Tom Cruise’s urine.
Okay, I don’t want to really see that shit. Ever. Regardless, look for more MMA stars to start crapping out books. And they don’t even have to be stars. Hell, Tank Abbott is writing one. God, this could get ugly real fast.
