I also think Ken and Royce are about the only two that would make sense for a movie. And I dont think people turned on Ken because he past his prime and can no longer deliver. They turned on him because he made him self out to be a complete ass on TUF 3. I was somewhat of a Ken fan before that but now I cant stand the guy.

In 2 years when BJ gets his ass handed to him by my man Abaddi for the lightweight title, Abaddi will instantly have a movie made about him. Then he'll be starring in his first movie: Aladdin and the Sultan's Treasure. He'll be playing Aladdin, of course. He's gonna be bigger than Justin Timberlake.

the Ali movie didn't come out for 20 years past his retirement. MMa is just an infant right now. The sport is well on its way to being mainstream but it will never catch on with certain types of people. 95% of fans are 14-35 year old males that are wantabe badasses. We live in our own little worlds and think that Tito Ortiz is a household name. Face it, he is not. There should be something in the works for a new Ace Ventura movie with Jim Carrey going undercover as a 'cage fighter.' Rich Franklin to do the stunts.

I know he is not a UFC fighter anymore but how about a movie about Carlos Newton! Doing some serious marshall arts when he was a kid, had to deal with child abuse, trained some Israeli soldiers. The movie should show him surviving a 280 pound Jean Riviere (Newton was 205 at the time) in his first MMA fight. Then the movie could end with Newton winning the welterweight title against Pat Militech! I think it would make an interesting movie!

These were my thoughts exactly. I dont see a possibility of a blockbuster movie about an MMA fighter for probobly 50 years. No athlete in MMA is even close to being as decorated as Ali. If there are self-claimed "MMA fans" who have no clue who Fedor is, probobly the greatest of all-time, then MMA is not big enough to sell to the general public. Sorry guys but no matter how much we would all love an MMA movie it just wouldn't sell and producers know that.
