A few days ago, a book popped up on Amazon.com called ‘Octagon’ by David Lynch. No real description, no details. Just that it ships in December and it costs roundabout 1200 bucks. Wait, what? The 1200$ thing might be a mistake … the book has actually been removed off of the North American Amazon sites, probably pending clarification. Although I really wouldn’t be surprised if this book still runs in the hundreds of dollars: it’s going to be a gorgeous coffee table book full of the best MMA photography ever done.
You may or may not remember the name David Lynch … that shitty show hosted by Joe Rogan did a bit on him and his work. Above you can see some of it … before and after pictures of UFC fighters. You can go to his page to check out more of his stuff, including the images that make up the cover of the book: real photos of the bloodstained mat post-event.
I’ll definitely be buying one of these … provided of course it costs less than 500 bucks. Otherwise I plan on stealing a copy from the local Indigo. Those fat fucks can’t run as fast as me.
