Thanks, been meaning to watch this for a while, even though it hasn't been given the best reviews.

I watched most of it (couldn't stand to sit through all of it). I'm a big GSP fan and this was just a huge disappointment. Had a lot of potential but they ignored the really interesting stuff.

i.e.Zahabi (owner Tri Star gym) talks really briefly once about how they used to be a bunch of guys who just did this for fun and then suddenly it was their job. I was thinking "Yeah, that is neat, never thought about that. Talk more about that." Boom, they cut to something else, never mention it again.

They basically just went through the motions combined with the fact that they have zero UFC footage to work with and it is a big let down.

Why was Anderson allowed to use footage from the UFC and GSP wasn't? Was it due to Tapout being the main promoter of this documentary? UFC footage would take it a lot more interesting.

Thanks for posting it, but a lot of people will wish they hadn't bothered, I sure do.

Just awful. Shallow, no real insight at all into fighters or MMA in general, and the lack of UFC footage is just a gaping hole in the film, whatever the reason.

To think it took this guy almost 4 years to waste 90 minutes of my life I won't get back.

I watched that whole thing... It was alright. Certainly not as bad as some people are making it out to be. It did lack UFC footage though.

it was as much about David loiseux (sp?) as it was about GSP.
