A must see for all UFC fans!!!!
25 February 2005 | by AA16MA-2See all my reviews

And that most DEFINITELY includes myself! Now I do not have to wait 2 months to pay $30 to see a cool ufc fight because at 10:00 PM every Monday night now,I can see one at the end of this very interesting documentary.Plus,we now have a close-up look at the training that these MMA guys go through.We see the certain work out methods of how one individual loses at least 20 pounds in less than 24 hours (very grueling indeed); I mean...WOW,and I thought my old school tae kwon do training was difficult.Also,the tension between the different trainees can be sometimes just freakin hilarious (like watching the WWF you know).

But like I said,it's a very interesting show and I will never miss one episode if I can help it.I just hope the show lasts a long time.
