I dont think this is going to be the feature film. The show is an hour long (minus commercials), but the film is 90 minutes.
The DVD is worth buying. It has a lot of great extras.

If you have yet to see the do*****entary film 'The Smashing Machine' about mixed martial arts fighter and wrestler Mark Kerr, you will soon have another chance beginning this Friday, Jan. 14, and for free.
As we have been reporting, this film, which originally appeared at the 2002 TriBeCa Film Festival and later on HBO's 'America Undercover,' will now be featured on the 'Untold' series on Spike TV. The first showing will be in a two-hour slot on Friday, Jan. 14, beginning at 9 PM. As always, check your local listings.
The original film ran about 92 minutes. This version has had some minor editing to make it fit into the two-hour time slot which includes commercial breaks. But we have been told by a spokeswoman for Spike TV that the dialog from the original version has been left intact, and that only a few minutes of scenes were edited out for time purposes, such as some outdoor shots.
Here is the schedule for the showings of 'The Smashing Machine' on Spike TV in the U.S. (all times Eastern):
Untold, 'The Smashing Machine', Spike TV, Friday, January 14, 2005, 9 PM
Untold, 'The Smashing Machine', Spike TV, Sunday, January 16, 2005, 9 AM
Untold, 'The Smashing Machine', Spike TV, Monday, January 17, 2005, 12 AM
"the dialog from the original version has been left intact, and that only a few minutes of scenes were edited out for time purposes, such as some outdoor shots."
That's all I needed to know. I'm definitely making time to watch it now.
I really enjoyed Life in the Cage as well as The Smashing Machine. MMA documentaries rule.
the best part on the DVD extras is mos def bas KTFO'ing ricco with a straight left to the face after kerr asks Bas to hurt him...
I like the "Fight Day" extra on the DVD...
yeah, the extras are great. There is like a 20 or 30 minute documentary on Renzo and Bas KOing Ricco during training. Great DVD!
