MMA 808: Inside Hawaii's Fight Game (Documentary)

Set to air in Hawaii, Oct. 4, 2008, 10:00pm (after the EliteXC card). It is literally preempting the 10:00pm KGMB nightly news broadcast.

A special one-hour documentary taking viewers behind the scenes of Hawaii's MMA fight game. Rare footage with B.J. Penn, Egan Inoue, Chris Leben, amateur fighters, women, and kids.

The documentary also addresses the political hurdles of regulation and stigmatizing of MMA athletes (YouTube promo, below).

Don't miss it. Accessible to anyone with internet capabilities on Oct. 5.


very cool!

That chick with the pink gloves is one sexy beast! Anyone lucky enough to get with that is one lucky guy...

Our DVR will be set. Thanks, MMAcademics!

Right On!

on the reals, this should be great for MMA as I am sure this will be an excelent piece on the sport. It's being produced by Edgy Lee, the same woman who brought that amazing documentary on ICE a couple years ago. She puts out top quality stuff and I think MMA will get a fair look on this show.

 ^^^Should be good then.

I have a cameo appearance in Edgy Lee's "The Hawaiians" (working with Keali'i Reichel in the recording studio). . . Kinda funny being the only Filipino guy in that movie : )
