Embedded to the right is a full and official sneak preview of CNBC’s “Ultimate Fighting: From Blood Sport to Big Time” documentary that premieres tomorrow, December 13 @ 10 pm ET.

The original documentary takes “a no-holds barred look at the business behind the nation’s fastest growing sports franchise,” telling the story behind the rise of the Ultimate Fighting Championship as both a business and cultural phenomenon. From the preview video, the program apparently heavily features former UFC middleweight champion Rich “Ace” Franklin.

The one hour program is reported by CNBC’s Scott Wapner, and re-airs the same night at 1AM ET in case you can’t make the first showing (or you’re a poor soul still stuck without Tivo).

Looks worth checking out for sure.

Smart move to have Rich as the spokes person. ^_^

It really shows how large the UFC and the sport of MMA has grown that a business channel of all things has done an hour long introspective show examining the history and growth of the UFC. Can't wait to see their perspective of it.


They also have this little Slideshow teaser from the show on their site.

Airs tonight 10pm est on CNBC.
