This is an excellent documentary covering the rise of the UFC. This was made during the Randy Couture legal fiasco and it covers that, but the most interesting parts are the interviews with UFC founders Rorian Gracie and Bob Meyrowitz.

The legendary champion of the Gracie family, this documentary goes inside the life of Rickson Gracie. Focusing on the 1995 Vale Tudo World Championship, American heavyweight kickboxer Todd “Hollywood” Hays and Japanese shootfighting heavyweight champion Koichiro Kimura look to knock-off the legend. This is such a great documentary, if you have yet to see it, I urge you to check it out.
