DK Publishing announced Tuesday they will produce the officially licensed encyclopedia to the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The “UFC Encyclopedia” will capture all facets of the Octagon, detailing the history of the organization from its beginnings in 1993.

“We began discussing a project of this scale with the UFC a few years ago and we are thrilled that we are finally able to bring a book like this to life for MMA fans,” stated Mike Degler, Publisher of the UFC Encyclopedia. “The UFC has an incredibly rich eighteen-year history, and we have been given unprecedented access to all of it. The UFC Encyclopedia will be a must-have for any MMA fan, as well as an informative and comprehensive tribute to the world’s fastest growing sport.”

The book, which is scheduled for publication on October 3rd 2011, will give fanboys unparalleled insights into the UFC universe in 400 full-color pages. The Encyclopedia will include unprecedented access to the organization’s fighters through profile and action photos, detailed biographies, records, vital stats and more.

“Very few people keep their thumbs on the pulse of the UFC like Tom Gerbasi, the author for the UFC Encyclopedia,” says Christian Sumner, Project Lead for the UFC Encyclopedia. “His event coverage will make readers feel like they were cageside, and his detailed fighter profiles are punctuated by quotes that he’s gathered through years of interviews.

“This kind of in-depth and behind-the-scenes access is what every UFC follower is looking for, and we are proud to be playing a part in bringing it to the fans!”

DK Publishing has secured a world language deal and expects to publish the book in numerous territories and languages.
