Aloha members of Bloody Elbow,

For the past six months, I have been working with PacificNetwork.tv to create a documentary on MMA in Hawaii.  Titled "MMA 808: Inside Hawaii's Fight Game," our one hour documentary takes a behind the scenes look at Hawaii's mixed martial arts industry. 

"MMA 808" tracks amateur MMA fighter, Steven Saito, into his first full MMA match, mentored by Chris Leben and Travis Ewing.  It follows the 42 year old Egan Inoue and his family through Inoue's come-back match with Hans Marerro, a competitor 20 years Inoue's junior.  And it showcases the story of B.J. Penn and his family as they built their family gym in Hilo, Hawaii. 

In addition, "MMA 808" pays significant attention to women in the sport, youth in MMA, the pros and cons of regulation, MMA's influence on street/internet violence, and civic responsibility.  Also included are exclusive interviews with UFC President, Dana White, and ESPN's Jon Anik of MMA Live.  It was a lot to pack into one hour! 

We hope this documentary pushes the MMA industry in some positive directions, not only in Hawaii, but internationally.  Feel free to write me here for questions and comments (feedback is greatly appreciated).  Thanks to Luke Thomas, BloodyElbow.com Editor in Chief, for your help and support.  Also of note, this documentary preempted the entire broadcast of the CBS 10:00pm news across the entire state of Hawaii this past Saturday night.  Yes, we canceled the news!  Kind of crazy...
