In “Blindside”, SuckerPunch shows you a side of the fighters’ lives you don’t normally see.
In this episode we show you Sadollah’s TUF7 audition reel. While he entered the show with an 0-0 pro record Sadollah, known to the country as “The Ultimate Underdog” is obviously used to winning.

    blowing the dust of pads with a kick was funny 🙂 At a guess, I would say the name of the song is “None shall pass”? No idea who it is though.

    Did you really send the out-takes at the end…if you did that was verrrra clever. Who organized the video Highlight reel and the building of this audition….?

    Tyburn- To answer your questions, We put this video together for amir, and yes we sent it in with the out-takes…. we felt it captured Amirs personality:)

    that is some cool stuff, after seeing all those fights. i can say that im proud to workout with amir and i can say (not just saying this cause i train with the man) that he just move up on my top fighters list. saying he’s on my top fighters list is saying a lot because ive seen a lot of fights and ive worked out with alot of fighters. he’s on the road to being great and he has a great training here at the combat sports center.

    You are very welcome SGT…but it was just a lucky guess 🙂

    …THAT is why you are President of Suckerpunch. You see as I watched that I remembered thinking, well the video shows he can fight, shows what he looks like and shows what he sounds like. Its about as long as you’d want it to be if you were looking through hundreds a day

    But what would have flagged it for me was, in less then ten seconds at the end you showed he had a sense of humour, and also a character that wouldnt be out of place. Thats VERY clever because it comes across as being accidental…but its so NOT. Thats why I asked if you sent the out-takes. How else could you demonstrate his character in a non imposing and non freakish way? genius…absolute Genious…and yes I DID think about that later in the night on the way to the shops. I was thinking…would the director really be that…I dont know…clever.

    Bet you it was those last ten seconds that made for the UFC decision. not only that, they will think that Amir must also have a good basis of support to produce a reel like that. Evidently, despite no professional matches, he had the looks, the sounds, the wins, the support, the character…

    …and they werent wrong were they. Coz HE WON 😛

    Thanks guys! I remember when this video was made I was very happy with it, especially considering they put it together in about 72 hours.
