                  Anybody understand why he says "Lucha Libre" in Spanish when referring to Brazilian street fights? I kinda don't get that.

                      Bois is so woke, pronouncing Rio, “he-o.” Just such cultural sensitivity wokeness.

                      It’s called “checking” a leg kick, if you’re concerned about things like that, as opposed to virtue signaling.

                                  Jon Bois and 'The Chart Party Method' need to be taught in Design & Media courses. It's so ridiculously effective. (Even without the smooth jazz.)

                                      I’m finally watching this.

                                      All I know is that it is a documentary series on MMA
                                      I hope it includes catch wrestling as part of its tradition

                                                          You did strike a nice balance between ranting about the evils of wealth and power, with insulting comments about the average dude working 9 to 5. So well done there.

                                                            Could have done without the cynical pessimistic political manifesto. By your reckoning life in the US is apparently much worse now than it was in say the 70s or any time really. As someone who has lived through all those decades in between, (while being too young to remember all but the last few years of the 70s admittedly) while there are always some ups and downs, the average quality of life, average level of tolerance etc have trended upwards in that time.

                                                            You come across, in this video at least, as the type of person who is just miserable all the time, and blames it on everything else.

                                                            If you're unhappy with the state of the world today and how it's just been going downhill for decades, I can't imagine how unfaithful you would have been with the state of the world in day the 60s and 70s. Which coincidentally are the decades just prior to all the ones you spent the documentary ripping.

Left out that Anderson entered his first fight against Sonnen with a broken rib or that he destroyed Sonnen in the rematch. His only loss at 185 since Weidman was a decision to Bisping who many thought Silva won. Recently he lost to Israel via decision as well. Anderson is also 40 something years old. His drug test failure came after being treated by a doctor to aid in his recovery after shattering his tibia because of the checked kicked by Weidman. Weidman in no way knew he was going to cause such an injury. You make it sound like Weidman intentionally broke Silva's leg which is Fantasy Island stuff. Anderson's other loss which was at 205 was against Daniel Cormier on short notice. Daniel Cormier is also one of the very best and his only losses are to Jon Jones.
