UFC officials recently announced that the promotion’s Emmy-nominated short film series, “UFC 25 Years in Short,” is no longer exclusive to UFC Fight Pass.
Originally released in 2018, the compilation of 25 short films was produced to celebrate the UFC’s 25th anniversary. In April, the docuseries received a Sports Emmy Award nomination in the “Outstanding Edited Sports Special or Series” category.
“‘UFC 25 Years in Short’ premiered on UFC Fight Pass in fall of 2018, so the time is right to showcase it to a new audience,” UFC senior vice president of production and programming Chris Kartzmark stated.
On Wednesday, the promotion released the third film in the series, “ULTIMATE ACCESSORY: The Story of the UFC Championship Belt.”
The official description, courtesy of the UFC:
First introduced in 1995, UFC championship belts have become the sport’s ultimate accessory. This is the surprising history of the prize sought by all MMA fighters.
