Alexander Gustafsson was raised in Arboga, a small town in Sweden by his father, a farmer.
His troubled and complicated youth led to him often ending up in fights as a teenager and aged 18 he was sentenced to prison for aggravated assault. One year later when he was released he decided to turn his life around; finding mixed martial arts, moving to another city and leaving the trouble behind him.
He has widely credited MMA as being the movement that finally changed his life for the better.
This is his first book.
