Journey to the UFC’s origins actually started from Chandler Henry’s friendship with Joe Pyfer. They became instant friends back in high school, and years later Journey to the UFC simply came together.

“It reminded me immediately of a Rocky movie or a superhero movie,” said Henry. “A superhero origin story where someone’s skill set that they have developed comes from such pain. And it really powers them to go forward and be a better person and triumph over their issues.”

Check out Eric’s full interview with director Chandler Henry, who cites Joe Pyfer’s “resilience” as one of the many elements that make Journey to the UFC a unique documentary.
