Serious respect for these athletes. I was once a nonbeliever, but after many hundreds of episodes of The JRE, I am now a true believer. That said, I kind of expect Liev Schreiber to narrate all sports docs since I started watching them on HBO.

Big fan of UFC and the Joe Rogan Experience myself, can't get enough. This documentary looks worth watching due to the number of stars such as Georges St-Pierre, Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell discussing the sport behind the scenes.
