Brian J. D’Souza grew up in the picturesque rural area of Caledon, Ontario. There, his voracious appetite for reading fed his imagination and seeded many dreams that power him forward to this very day. He attended Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts.
He is the author of Pound for Pound: The Modern Gladiators of Mixed Martial Arts. During his research, he traveled from the gyms of Montreal to the academias of Curitiba, Brazil to the MMA training grounds of Los Angeles and many locales in between to capture the spirit and heart of the modern gladiators of MMA. He has written for ESPN.com, FoxSports.com, MSN.ca, FIGHT! Magazine, Sportsnet Magazine and CagePotato.com, among others.
