UFC 25 video: 'Worth the Wait: The Story of Daniel Cormier'

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 Tuesday, the promotion released the 17th film in the series, “WORTH THE WAIT: The Story of Daniel Cormier.”

The official description, courtesy of the UFC:

In 2009, Daniel Cormier transitioned from Olympic Wrestler to MMA rookie, launching a second act in combat sports and difficult journey to the top of UFC.
