Davie’s book is a behind-the-scenes, tell-all memoir about the four years it took to launch the first UFC. The title comes from film star Chuck Norris’ response when he was asked to be a commentator at the first UFC event held on November 12, 1993. Davie’s book covers the rejection by the traditional martial arts establishment, cable giants HBO, Showtime and ESPN and the lengthy, arduous process of recruiting fighters. IS THIS LEGAL? is featured extensively in the media during International Fight Week / UFC Fan Expo.
