Legend FC have released a mini-documentary with a behind the scenes look at Asian-MMA, filmed at the Legend: 7 event in Macau.
The Hong Kong based promotion boast a decent level of Asian-MMA talent, and happily, unlike RUFF they accept fighters who do not hold Chinese or Hong Kong passports or work visas, meaning that Australian, English and American ex-pat talent training from the likes of Epic in Hong Kong, Phuket Top Team in Thailand, Evolve in Singapore, and all the other great camps in East Asia have a chance to fight there.
Here is the mini-doco in their own words:
“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.”
