Journalist Eugene Robinson's new book, Fight, takes a close look at the culture of street brawling and competitive fighting.

It's got a how-to on grappling and surviving broken bones, and it pays tribute to brawling legends of past and present.

Farai Chideya talks with Robinson, who is also a competitive fighter, about his own passion for blood sport.
