Story of a Little Boy and the UFC Heavyweight Champion

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 Friday, the promotion released the 20th film in the series, “TAKE ME WITH YOU: The Story of a Little Boy and the UFC Heavyweight Champion.”

The official description, courtesy of the UFC:

In 2012, then-UFC heavyweight champ, Junior Dos Santos, brought a 9-year-old boy from a nearby favela to Las Vegas for an unforgettable adventure.
