The premier for the documentary is just weeks away and we would like to ask Bullshido for a favor.
Mel Gibson also has a film at SXSW and we are 400 views behind him on Youtube. Please let's show some support for our sport and blow him out the water as far as social networking is concerned.
Please go to youtube and facebook and "like" the video and ask all your friends to do the same. Throw it out there on any thing you can find to get people to view the trailer.
Seriously now listen and listen well.
Sirc makes some idiot fucking post and it gets 5000+ hits. This is a film about an MMA fighter and a chance for people to show some support for a group of guys and I only see 500 views. Come on now I brag on y'all all the time let's get off our asses and make some noise about this film.
So help me God when I have the time I will make sure to visit every god dam dojo on this site and open up a full can of whoop ass on members of this site.
As per usual I am not making a dime off of any of this its a matter of pride.
I am gripped by the agony of indecision.....
On one hand, Coach Josh and Gladiators Academy are some of the finest people and the Coach has been a great help in my training and life in general. I should support them!
On the other hand, how can I go against Riggs? How can I go against William Wallace? How can I go against Mad frigging Max?
Because none of those guys will show up and whip your ass
I'll grant it's fairly unlikely, BUT this is Mel Gibson we're talking about.
Have you considered the idea of dressing Sirc up in a Beaver puppet costume for a little counter-memeing?
Film looks Good Josh.
If i was a few thousand miles nearer i would come to a viewing.
Will post on facebook.
Done. Good luck with the screening.

It also gave a great peek behind the curtain to see some of the hard choices made by everyone in the sport every day. I think that this movie can undo a good bit of the fighters as meatheads stereotype that TUF has propagated over the last few years. The movie is straight up inspirational. Y'all all need to see it.
Excellent movie. It portrayed the fighters and coaches as intelligent people who understand and can express how important the role that MMA fulfills in keeping the warrior tradition alive in modern society.
Overall the production value was much higher than I thought it would be. The film was beautifully shot and edited. Naszir is right, the film has a certain purity in it's stripped down to the simplest parts imagery. A sink full of bloody brown paper towels and a card table with strips of tape, empty plastic cups and hand wraps all strewn about in pre-fight haste captures the feel of amateur fight night.
I'm generally not a big fan of documentaries, but I'd see this one again.
