Storyline

West Perrine, Florida is a suburban ghetto in Southwest Miami-Dade County. Over 73% of its residents are African-American and more than a third of them are unemployed. Violent crimes occur on a daily basis in this neighborhood of less than two square miles, where much of its adult male population winds up dead or in prison before their 30th birthday. But there is hope in the hood... Dhafir "Dada 5000" Harris (6'3", 270lbs., bench presses 670lbs) grew up blocks away from Perrine's MMA sensation, Kimbo Slice, and spent a year traveling the world as Kimbo's bodyguard. When Kimbo's manager buried video of Dada's spectacular backyard fight debut, for fear of Dada overshadowing his rising superstar, Dada leaves Kimbo's crew and makes a life-changing decision: Dada builds a ring in his momma's backyard and transforms himself into the Don King of illegal backyard fights in Perrine. No doctors, no ambulance. Just two men in a 12'x12' ring battling in a savage bare-knuckle fight to the finish. ... Written by rakontur

Complete bullcrap
18 May 2015 | by Lone Wolf and CubSee all my reviews

This Dada dude is only promoting himself. He's (badly) trying to sell us on the idea, that he is some kind of philanthropist, helping the people in his poor community; but he is simply using and abusing said community to further his illegal backyard cockfights -relentlessly Inciting already hurt fighters to keep on. One of the most laughable statements is, that he is making no money off of it. Yeah, right. I can't believe Netflix is carrying this disgrace. MMA came a long way, but this is a throwback to the stone age. Formally amateurish and with regards to content despicable.

No wonder Kimbo cut him off.
