Martial arts AUDIObooks
So, I enjoy listening to audiobooks; at home, on the road, or even during training. So, I have been looking for non-fiction audio books about (mixed) martial arts, but found none - or better, none that was good.
Can anybody recommend me something like this? I'd also settle for some good speech that I can download.

I should say, apart from generic books about Zen, or the all-time *tactics* classics, like "The Art of War", or "The Book of Five Rings", the only audiobooks I have found so far are:
"Cinderella Man: James Braddock, Max Baer, and the Greatest Upset in Boxing History" which was simply phantastic.
Then, I also found "Blood in the Cage: Mixed Martial Arts, Pat Miletich, and the Furious Rise of the UFC", which was a complete waste of my money and time.

They're not really about martial arts, but the latter-day (Brian Herbert) Dune books have some pretty bitchin' fight scenes in them. Plus they're read by Scott Brick, who's voice is made of magic.The fool thinks himself immortal,
If he hold back from battle;
But old age will grant him no truce,
Even if spears spare him.

Thanks, pal, but I am really only looking for non-fiction when it comes to martial arts.
Listened to the first Dune audiobook as well, though, and really, really can recommend it. Some stories, you can't stomach listening to, but that one was perfect as an audiobook.
Currently listening to "When the Killing's Done", by T. C. Boyle, which is also quite fine as a treat for your ears - but has nothing at all to do with martial arts, of course.
