Fighting in the Age of Loneliness: Supercut edition

This is entirely thanks to you. We have reached one-million subscribers and that feels very wild to finally get to say. We'll have more in store, but to start things off wanted to show our appreciation by offering the repackaged Fighting in the Age of Loneliness in its entirety.
Jon Bois and Felix Biederman put together this documentary a few years ago, beginning the process in 2017 and publishing it in November 2018. A lot of you weren't around back then, a lot of you might not have watched all of our stuff back then, a lot of you might need an excuse to kill two hours right now. Jon's work has meant so much to our team and to our audience for a long time now so we felt there was no better way to say "thank you" than with this special project.
We truly can't express our gratitude enough. The community here that you have helped us build means the world to us, and it's something we never even expected could really be achieved. This won't be the last time we say it, but thank you.

    • Did you really say "and it never leaved some people" instead of it never left some people when you were talking about the recession of 2008?

  • That pointless merging of American politics and MMA fighting just tarnished this video. Why mention Reagan when he had nothing to do with MMA? Or Clinton and Political Correctness? You ruined a great documentary by peppering in your own political ideological view, without tying it to the narrative. It's not like I even disagree with your politics. It's just that it has nothing to do with the story, so I found myself rolling my eyes and trying to skip ahead. I get you are trying to be "poetic" but it just sounds like "pouting" - get over it, and focus on the fighting man.

  • I just think how great it would be if you actually investigated the root of all the real evil and self destructiveworld problems that leads to this crap.. Israel and the attack of the USS Liberty would be a good start...the doc 911 missing links would be good to watch if it's still around

  • To be honest, I stopped watching the UFC a long time ago, and I can’t stand Dana, but other than that, this was an excellent documentary! Seeing some of the early footage again reminds me of the time when I would buy EVERY pay-per-view regardless of the card. When fights were a big deal, and the fighters actually stood out from one another. Now it seems as if there’s an event every other week and the fighters are just a carbon copy of each other.

  • In all seriousness, this is one of the most well put together and comprehensive documentaries I’ve ever seen. Your production value is so high for what likely amounts to 1 or 2 passionate guys using final cut lol. Even the way in which you bounce around and contextualize everything is seriously amazing, I felt that 2006 nostalgia hard. and also just very tasteful. I will forever be a subscriber and a fan

    • If your dumbass had actually watched the docu, you would have seen that POLITICS and POLITICIANS were the ones who tried to wedge their grubby hands into the sport. So Jon and Felix have every right to talk about it. And what do ya know? It was a Republican who tried to get his hands into it and tried to make it illegal. Good ol John McCain, a guy y'all worshipped till that orange ball of spray tan said he didn't like him, then you turned on him instantly.

  • I truly thought Silva was unbeatable. I didn't like him cuz he was Brazilian and I wanted an American champ, but when he finally lost I didn't want to believe it for some reason lol. When he lost again I felt a strange sadness, that the invincible spider was gone - either due to his ego/legend being disproven or age.

  • I’m not fuct too. I don’t need the kardashians or mma or talk shows or any entertainment to rally my spirit to survive or fame or belonging. I just need to understand the unhinged wannabes, and to understand that runnning with the pack is just what those types need. The fans and participants just need to feel like they belong. We all want that but really we don’t need it do we.

  • What I expected: Psychological analysis of the rise of fighting in the reduced sense of agency in man starting in the 1990s / the hyper commercialized and increasingly isolated nature of culture in technologically advanced western society, fully realized by the portrayal showed in fight club. It could show how the bond and respect fighters can gain in the sport through training together is a light in the lonely technologically oversaturated and emotionally substanceless darkness, and the UFC's conflict of interest in being part of that commercialization What I got: 70% excellent mma history / analysis of the different storylines of the fighters and companies, particularly the unethical practices in pride, and 30% typical chapo political wankfest

  • Mostly great video, but why were you so lenient on Jon Jones? That man was one of the dirtiest fighters in the sport. He intentionally gauged at eyes, kicked at the balls, and went for career-ending knee kicks whenever he could. The man was an absolute scumbag in the ring and you oddly never mentioned it. You instead tried to make him sympathetic, but the man was truly awful and unsportsmanlike.
