On a banner day in mixed martial arts, Gross Point Blank reflects on the UFC’s important new anti-doping policy.
Joined in studio by filmmaker Bobby Razak, GPB also focused on SI.com’s long-form article and short film on Mark “The Smashing Machine” Kerr. The soft-spoken retired fighter joined GPB to recount stories, respond to accusations, and share what’s new in his life as he fights to pick himself up off the canvas and stay sober.
Finally, Razak’s latest film, “Fallen Soldier,” will be released June 9 on Vimeo. The potent subject matter follows the tragic tale of former middleweight champion boxer Gerald McClellan and the aftermath of a horrifying fight in London against Nigel Benn that left him blind and incapable of fending for himself. Lisa McLellan, Gerald’s sister, has taken care of her sibling for the past 20 years and is prominently featured in the film. She joined the show to discuss “G Man” and the life they lead today.
