Video: Legend FC Documentary - 'Legendary: The Rise Of MMA In Asia'

Watch Part 1 of the documentary 'Legendary: The Rise Of MMA In Asia'

Here's an interesting documentary called 'Legendary: The Rise Of MMA In Asia', which provides an inside look at Legend FC, a promotion which hosts shows mostly in Macau and Hong Kong.

Filmed around Legend Fighting Championship 7 at Macau's City of Dreams, "Legendary" takes a look at the rise of MMA in the Asia-Pacific against the backdrop of the February 2012 Legend Welterweight Championship fight between Bae Myung Ho and Li Jingliang.

Filmmakers Euan McKirdy and James Wong interview some of the fighters, coaches, organizers, journalists, and other people who are hard at work developing the Asia-Pacific into MMA's newest frontier and largest potential market.

From the exhaustion of the weigh-in to the tension of pre-fight preparations to the fights themselves, McKirdy and Wong give fans a new level of access and insight into the rise of MMA in Asia.

The video is well made, and I highly suggest watching it:

Legend FC's next event is on June 16th, and it will have Li Jingliang who was featured on this video, taking on top prospect, Dan Pauling as the co-headliner. Also on the card is a 4-man bantamweight tournament, and a title eliminator for Jadamba Narantungalag's belt. Check out the current fight card here, and a promo for the event after the jump.
