Hollywood is normally not a vehicle used to educate and enlighten people. Hollywood is normally a vehicle used to shock people, offend people and propogate popular beliefs with the sole intentions getting asses in the theatres and thus maximing your $$$.
Now today we read that the New York Post describes the UFC movie as...
"...combatants engage in bloody, bare-knuckle brawls in an octagon-shaped ring."
Please, oh please tell me they got their facts wrong.
Zuffa's got a dilemma here. Who's going to want to produce a movie showing the beauty of MMA? Would anyone (aside from us) want to watch it? Probably not. If they produce a movie like the New York Post describes above, they'll turn a quick buck but it may set our sport back another 10 years.
Violence is NOT a viable long term strategy. I sincerly believe that and will continue to say that in my posts, my articles and on my website until I am blue in the face.
