Linking you to the Mixed Martial Arts news you want, and the stupid commentary you don't.

Golly gee, lets make an MMA movie!

This is the first time I've mentioned this on the site, but I've been reading about this for a few months now. Imperia Entertainment is making a motion picture called "Never Submit", about a young fighter's journey through the world of mixed martial arts. That might sound pretty exciting to you until you take a closer look at Imperia Entertainment and the quality of their website. Their other films include the movie 'Whiskers', about an intelligent seal:

Whiskers is a family film about an intelligent seal, in danger of being euthanized for scientific study, who is released by a researcher’s young daughter. As he is pursued by the “bad guys,” Whiskers has various adventures with a family, and the young girl, who finds her first love through Whiskers. Whiskers is produced by Academy Award Winner Jordan Klein (“Flipper,” “Jaws,” “Splash”).

Pardon me if I don't look forward to this abomination of a movie. Everyone knows that Hollywood got MMA right back in the 80's with Bloodsport, Bloodsport 2, Bloodsport 3, and who can forget Bloodsport 4 : The Dark Kumite? Now of course Bloodsport 4 was made in 1999, but it's production values and wardrobe are right out of the 80's so I included it here.

Moving along, MMAFighting has announced that Imperia has signed on Pride fighters Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and Wanderlei "The Axe Murderer" Silva"
"Shogun is a charismatic guy with a great smile who looks great on film. He will be playing a Brazilian fighter in the movie"

I hope that Shogun is up to the task of acting out this difficult role. Let's hope he's not a 'successful' Brazilian fighter, because I don't think Shogun could handle such a stretch of the imagination.
