There is a new documentary about the story of Matt Lindland and his dealings with the politics of the UFC which ultimately led to him being ousted from the company even though he was still one of the top fighters in the world.
Lindland is a 21-5 Team Quest middleweight who still ranks on most everyone’s top ten including a rank of number seven with WAMMA. Despite alleged objections and threats from Dana White, the film has been submitted to over twenty major Film Festivals.
Here is a synopsis of the film taken from www.fightingpolitics.com:
Cage Fighter Matt “The Law” Lindland had to earn his nickname the hard way, through perseverance and a good lawyer. Back in 2000 Matt was in one of the biggest political sports messes ever, resulting in his case on the steps of the supreme court. His success in the Sport of Mixed Martial Arts came to an abrupt halt as politics came knocking on his door again. This is his story.
