Former UFC champion Brock Lesnar’s “Death Clutch: My Story of Determination, Domination and Survival,” which is co-written by Paul Heyman, hits store shelves on May 24.
The book covers the 33-year-old’s many sporting endeavors.
Lesnar, a former NCAA Division I national wrestling champion at the University of Minnesota, eventually became a superstar with World Wrestling Entertainment. He then continued his wrestling-entertainment exploits in Japan, briefly joined the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings, and then launched a new career as an MMA fighter.
In just his fourth pro fight, he won the UFC’s heavyweight title and quickly became the organization’s biggest pay-per-view debut. Despite losing the title to Cain Velasquez after a once-life-threatening bout of diverticulitis, he remains one of the most prominent and polarizing fighters in the sport.
Currently, he’s serving as a coach on “The Ultimate Fighter 13″ and meets fellow contender Junior Dos Santos in a season-ending bout at UFC 131 in June.
Although notoriously closed-guarded and rarely one to seek out publicity, Lesnar promises to speak openly about his pro-sports career and life outside of competition.
Lesnar and his friend, longtime wrestling insider Heyman, first teased the upcoming project in 2010.
The 208-page title retails for $25.99. The book follows recent releases from the likes of Chuck Liddell, Matt Hughes, Randy Couture and Brian Stann.
