    There have been many great films about great boxers... Jake LaMotta, Mickey Ward, Ali, etc.

    Which fighter would you like to see accurately portrayed in a film?

    imo Fedor would be a great movie. An extremely rich career with ups and downs and a fighter who has a lesser known personal life. Observing his career motivations and the reasons he didn't go to UFC would be an interesting movie for the general public. If it was done well, it would bring a lot of attention to an unpopular legend.

    Frank Mir biopic would be amazing

    The talented youngster that didn't train and ran through his competition
    The humbling beat down from Freeman
    Reinvention against Tank leading to the UFC title win via arm break against Sylvia
    The motorcycle accident, being told he may never walk again
    The Dan Christison fight where he came in overweight and fat
    The 'in shape' fight but reality check vs Vera
    'The last chance' vs Hardonk in the premlims at 74. Mrs Mir's reaction is still amazing to that sub
    The upset vs Lesnar
    Regaining the UFC heavyweight championship against his idol, being the first ever to knock out big nog.

    The steroid denial, before the positive test for oral turinabol came out

    I'd like to see one on Brian Bowles or any other fighter that became a real fuck up. I like trainwrecks

    Tim Kennedy

    Kills lots of women and children in Iraq
    Comes back to USA but is itching to kill somebody
    Joins UFC to take out his frustration
    Gets wrecked, retires and develops PTSD
    Becomes an alcoholic
    Goes back to Iraq to shoot more kids
    But this time he has a change of heart when he is about to shoot a cute little Iraqi girl
    He opens up an orphanage there
    He is playing with the kids outside when a new kid comes and asks him if he is the great Tim Kennedy
    Tim says he indeed is and the kid proceeds to tell him that he should have won the Yoel fight by DQ
    Tim is all teary eyed and hugs the kid
    The kid says "No Mas" and blows himself up

    The End

    *No animals were harmed in the making of this film but we can't say the same for Iraqi kids.*

    Mirko (CroCop) Filipovic

    Starts out with him as a young teenager starting out in track and field, training in Karate in his backyard using scraps to form a punching bag.
    Then delves into his joining the Croatian Army, where he learned kickboxing. And enters amateur events.
    Then we go into him joining the Lucko anti-terrorist organization. (This alone would be a movie).
    Then into his K-1 professional kickboxing career that spans 8 years and two semifinals, and one K-1 Championship.
    Then onto his career into Pride FC where he becomes one of the world's most fearsome strikers in history, capturing the Open Weight Pride Grand Prix 2006.
    And then to a tumultuous career in the UFC....
    ..and finally back to Japan where he enters RIZIN.

    A rather remarkable career when you look at it, constantly fighting...constantly joining organizations.

    From a strictly entertainment point of view. Jones would probably be good. It could even have lots of gratuitous nudity. Drama, and the dichotomy of the real guy. As opposed to the image he tried to portray for so long. And the story is still being written.
