The UFC celebrates it’s 20th anniversary this month and to mark the occasion they are set to air a new documentary, ‘Fighting For A Generation: 20 Years Of The UFC’ this Tuesday night on FOX Sports 1.
The two-hour long documentary will chart the UFC’s rise to popularity from it’s first shows in the early 90’s right through to the present day.
Over 60 notable figures were interviewed for the show, including it’s original creator, Art Davie, Senator, John McCain, who was at one point in time the sport’s biggest critic, boxing superstar and MMA enthusiast, Mike Tyson and of course the UFC’s modern-day president, Dana White.
“What me and the Fertitta brothers truly believe is that we have the most valuable sports franchise on earth,” White says in the documentary. “This thing is global and is just getting started. And you’ve heard me say it a million times, and I’ll say it again. I don’t care what color you are. I don’t care what country you come from and I don’t care what language you speak, we’re all human beings. Fighting is in our DNA, we all get it and we like it.”
The documentary airs less than a couple of weeks out from the UFC’s 20th birthday on November 12th. The promotion will celebrate with their 167th PPV on November 16th in Las Vegas with Georges St.Pierre and Johny Hendricks headlining one of the biggest events of the year.
