Films and TV shape and influence us every day so anytime that something new is introduced to us we take note of it.
MMA has grown by leaps and bounds over the past few years.
We have seen MMA influence movies, TV, popular culture and much more. It is a true mark of growth on the sports part to be featured in films and TV.
Movie directors and producers have realized that rather than staged stunt fighting that people respond to realistic combat.
You will see that some movies even carried the mark of Mixed Martial Arts before the sport was fully realized.
With film and TV using MMA as a storyline to base stories off of it is only a matter of time before MMA is fully main stream with audiences.
