Isaac Richards Documentary – Former pro footballer, chasing his MMA dreams

Isaac Richards had a promising football career ahead of him but an urge to do something else made him leave his professional contract with A-League side Adelaide United to chase his dreams in MMA.

That transition was documented by Ethos Documentaries who followed his journey right up to his first bout.

Started Martial Arts training after watching Mr Miyagi and Daniel-son in Karate Kid back in 1987. By the time MMA arrived many years later, I was hooked. Coverage of local MMA was via scarce posts on forums like the Underground and Sherdog. I embarked on covering the sport in 2002 and since then have written thousands of articles for both print and online media, before branching out and starting Fight News Australia in 2010. Outside the site, I dream of riding in an F1 car or a Jet Fighter. Anyone have a spare one lying around?
