Before becoming known professionally as "The Legend" and winning almost every mixed martial arts title in existence, Frank Shamrock was Frank Alicio Juarez III the scrappy, chubby kid from rural California who was in and out of juvenile detention starting from the age of 11.
In Uncaged, Shamrock bares all as he describes a childhood filled with abuse, neglect and petty crime that led to an equally troubled young adulthood. Beginning with his early childhood living with his hippie mother and abusive stepfather in a shed behind their house, Shamrock goes on to detail his salvation under the foster father who took him in when no one else would, his descent into drugs, alcohol and increasingly serious crimes which would land him in state prison and his eventual rebirth as a cage fighter who would go on to dominate the entire sport for the next two decades. Chronicling his fights inside and outside of the ring, Uncaged offers never-before-told details behind the people and events that enabled him to become a champion as well as his problems with the Ultimate Fighting Championship and the reasons behind his retirement.
Using refreshing candor to tell this thrilling story of sex, violence, crime and redemption, Uncaged offers an unprecedented look inside the world of mixed martial arts fighting while revealing the numerous pitfalls Shamrock encountered in his life and how he successfully overcame them to become a champion in every sense of the word.
