Just saw this. It painted MMA in a very negative light. It also had Mark Schultz watching UFC in 1987 for an event that took place in 1996. Specifically the Gary Goodridge/Paul Herrera fight where Goodridge elbowed him into oblivion.
Is it really a "spoiler" if it's a well known true story though? I mean I know not EVERYONE knows the story but growing up as a wrestler in the Midwest, you'd find more people who did know it than didn't.
Fair enough.I either never heard of, or forgot about this story until the movie was being released.
Mark Schultz has been pretty adamant in saying that the movie is pretty much a fictional story and is quite a way's off from the real story. He does also say it's a great movie though. Just not totally based on his and Dave's story.
Yea I saw it and the time line is really distorted. I also thought it implied mark went on to become an MMA fighter when he only fought once
