    Zuffa comes in around UFC 30. Gee I guess Dana didn't invent the sport.

    Is this a full documentary, or is that it? I only ask because I want more and a doc on the early history of the UFC would be sweet.

    It would be awesome. Unfortunately, I think Zuffa is trying to make sure fans/governing bodes do not see the UFC as a bunch of mulleted rednecks in wife beater and tennis shoes knocking each other senseless.

    They control the real content, so they are the gatekeepers on something like this. Zuffa would basically have to decide if producing something like this would generate profits sizeable enough to outweigh perception risks it would generate.
