In partnership with SBNation, Felix Biederman – of Chapo Trap House fame – has written and narrated a five part documentary on mixed martial arts. The series looks to cover the evolution of the sport and its strange place in the world.
This first episode examines the roots of MMA, the evolution of Jiu Jitsu, and the development of Vale Tudo fights in Brazil. And it touches on the meteoric rise of Chris Weidman and his defeat of Brazilian MMA legend Anderson Silva.
Check it out, and stay tuned for the next four episodes, coming out this week.
