Word of the Matt Lindland documentary Fighting Politics is making the rounds. There is no official release date for the piece which tries to bring to light why Lindland, who was a top five fighter in the UFC's middleweight division as recent as 2005, was dumped by the organization.
By the looks of the trailer, Loretta Hunt from Sherdog suggests that it was based primarily on Lindland not having the right look and wearing a Sportsbook.com t-shirt into the cage. Josh Gross from SI.com goes onto say that the UFC isn't legitimate because it doesn't have Lindland on its roster.
There are also multiple voices heard saying that Lindland is the No. 1 middleweight in the world. That's a quite a leap since most MMA media types have Anderson Silva, in the same weight class, as the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world (Fedor Emelianenko is my No. 1).
