Not idea. But why would you want to see it?

It's basically a Matt Lindland pity and self worship flick about how he's the best middleweight in the world and the UFC screwed him because he got kicked out for violating company policies.

Yawn.

I'd like to see it aswell. I saw the clip with Chael Sonnen talking abouts Matt release. He made a real good point about the UFC picking their spots when it comes to enforcing policies or not, which is very true considering they release Matt for wearing a sponsor that wasn't allowed, yet they were quite happy to allow GSP to continue to wear his Affliction clothing when they had put a ban on it.

GSP never wore affliction when it was on the banned list.

Really? I remember him wearing something on his shorts at UFC 79 when Affliction were just starting their promotion. Either way, it makes little difference, if he had I doubt the UFC would've released him if he had.

No, affliction paid him not to wear any other sponsors though and he still got his shout outs at the press conference...

That would explain the plain black shorts then.

yeah I know a lot of the **** in the documentary is exaggerated, but its still interesting. I still want to hear what everyone has to say and listen to some interesting behind-the-scene stories.

this documentary was kinda weird. at times I wasn't sure if it was about the history of the UFC or Lindland. It was kind of a pointless documentary and they tried to stretch their point of view quite a bit.

but I still liked it because of some of the interesting stories.

I found the film making pretty amateurish, but there was some good stuff. I enjoyed the background on Lindland's wrestling career, and some of the commentary of fighters, especially from Chael Sonnen, even though it was pretty clear that he had to self-sensor to an extent. The background on Team Quest was interesting as well, even if nothing was new there.
