WE'RE GOING TO HAVE HIM OUT IN A SECOND. BEFORE WE BRING HIM OUT HERE THOUGH LET'S RUN A CLIP OF THE SERIES.

>> AROUND THE WORLD FIGHTING FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN IS TRUTH. AN INSTINCT TO FIGHT, TO SURVIVE, TO PROTECT. BUT THIS ISN'T A SHOW ABOUT FIGHTING. THIS IS A SHOW ABOUT PEOPLE WHO FIGHT. I'M FRANK GRILLO, AN ACTOR AND LIFELONG FIGHT ENTHUSIAST.

>> THIS IS LIKE FOLKLORE FOR ME. CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MUCH RESPECT I HAVE [ SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE ].

>> WRESTLER IS SUPPOSED TO BE FAIR TO HONOR THE PRIDE AND DIGNITY OF THE COMMUNITY.

>> REPRESENTS FREEDOM.

>> IT'S A REAL APPRECIATION FOR WHAT THESE PROFESSIONALS GO THROUGH.

>> WE USE MARTIAL ARTS AS A PLATFORM FOR BRINGING DIFFERENT MINORITY GROUPS TOGETHER.

>> THESE KIDS FOUND EACH ONLY FOR THIS.

>> FIGHTING, HOW DID IT BECOME SO CLEAR. EVERYBODY BLEEDS THE SAME. EVERYBODY SWEATS THE SAME. EVERYONE HAS TO HAVE RELEASE. AND I THINK THAT IN THE END MOST PRISONS ARE THE SAME.

>> LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, GIVE IT TO MR. FRANK GRILLO HERE.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

>> WOW. THIS SHOW, I SAID IT ONCE WILL SAY IT A MILLION TIMES IT'S CHILD CONGRATULATIONS.

>> THANK YOU.

>> WHAT AN ACHIEVEMENT IT'S AMAZING.

>> I'M JUST A PIECE OF IT. IT'S AN IDEA I HAD. I'M A PIECE OF THE SHOW. SO MANY PEOPLE I TRAVELLED WITH THE DIRECTOR WHO ALSO EDITED IT AND PRODUCERS WHO FOUND THE PEOPLE AND THE STORIES. IT WAS A COLLECTIVE EFFORT AND BIT HERCULEAN AND I HAVE TO TELL YOU I'M HUMBLED AND SURPRISED BY REACTION. IT WAS SO CLOSE TO ME, LOVE DOING IT BUT THE AT END OF THE DAY DON'T KNOW IF IT WILL TOUCH PEOPLE. BUT THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF PEOPLE, AND I'M LIKE, REALLY, WHY DID YOU LIKE IT? AND WHAT ABOUT IT YEAH THERE'S A THROUGH LINE HERE.

>> AS WE SEEN IN THE TRAILER YOU'VE BEEN A FIGHT ENTHUSIAST YOUR WHOLE LIFE. I WANT TO GET IN WHAT YOU SAID BUT RIGHT NOW LET'S GET INTO THIS RESPONSE THING. YOU'RE A FIGHT ENTHUSIAST WITH A APPRECIATION FOR THIS. THE WAY YOU SHOT THIS AND THE WAY YOU FRAMED IT, IT'S A STORY RESONATING BEYOND JUST FIGHT ENTHUSIASTS.

>> YEAH THAT'S WHAT'S HAPPENED. YOUNG WOMEN ARE REALLY AMAZING. WHEN YOU FIGHT THERE'S ONLY TRUTH BECAUSE THAT'S IT. BUT I THINK WHEN YOU FIND STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE WHO STRUGGLE WHICH MANY OF US DO IN MANY WAYS THAT YOU FIND A PURPOSE IN THAT, AS HUMAN BEINGS CAN RELATE.

>> THERE'S A LOT TO RELATE TO EVEN IF NEVER HAVE THROWN A PUNCH SO MANY THINGS ON A HUMAN LEVEL.

>> AGREED.

>> WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM?

>> I'M VERY FORTUNATE TO TRAVEL TO DIFFERENT PLACES AND MEET AMAZING PEOPLE. I WAS A HUGE ANTHONY BOURDAIN FAN, CONTINUE TO BE, REST IN PEACE, I WOULD GO HOME AND JUST WATCH ANTHONY, I FOUND MYSELF NOT WATCHING TELEVISION WOULD JUST TRAVEL WITH HIM, HE'S A BRILLIANT WRITER AND THE WAY HE CONNECTED ME WITH PEOPLE IN IRAN AND BEIRUT, IT DOESN'T HAPPEN ON OUR NEWS ANYWAY, AND WHEREVER I GO IN THE WORLD IF I AM DOING A MOVIE OR TRAVELING, I FIND A GYM AND AM IMMEDIATELY ACCEPTED INTO THE FIGHT CULTURE. BECAUSE I FIGHT. THERE'S AN HONESTY THERE. THROUGH THOSE RELATIONSHIPS I WOULD LEARN ABOUT THE CULTURE. I SAID, YOU KNOW, I'M GOING TO TALK TO NETFLIX. IT'S KIND OF AN EASY, FIGHT CULTURE. AND WE WERE ON A PLANE NOT LONG AFTER THAT.

>> PRETTY AMAZING. WHAT'S FUNNY ABOUT THAT, YOU WALK INTO SOME OF THE TOUGHEST ROOMS AND BIGGEST DUDES AND READY TO GO. YOU SAY THIS IS INTIMIDATED BUT YOU'RE READY TO GO. ONLY TIME YOU SHOW FEAR IS IN THE MARKET FRUIT AND THERE'S --

>> HAVE YOU EVER SMELLED SOMETHING THAT TASTES GOOD BUT SMELLS BAD, IT'S BAD.

>> SOMEONE WHO LOVES TO TRY OTHER FOOD AND BROADEN HORIZONS YOU'RE NOT GOOD WITH FOOD.

>> I'M NOT A BIG EATER OF I EAT ONE MEAL A DAY, I EAT THE SAME FOOD ALL THE TIE. I ENVY PEOPLE WHO ARE FOODIES. I LOVE FOOD CULTURE. I'M ITALIAN AND I DON'T EAT PASTA, YOU KNOW, BUT I LOVE FOOD CULTURE. YEAH, SO, IT'S FUNNY. LOVE ANTHONY BOURDAIN AND I DON'T LIKE FOOD.

>> THIS IS GOING TO SADDEN ME, WHAT'S YOUR ONE MEAL, THE THING YOU EAT ALL THE TIME?

>> SO I EAT MOSTLY SALMON.

>> AH.

>> I KNOW, I KNOW. I'M A HORRIBLE PERSON. I KNOW. I'M TERRIBLE.

>> IT PAYS DIVIDENDS. YOU LOOK INCREDIBLE

>> YEAH WHATEVER WHO SEES ME NAKED IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER.

>> WHEN WE DO ANYTHING ON THIS STAGE THIS COULD GO ANYWHERE RIGHT NOW. SO YOU HAD THE CONVERSATION, YOU CONCEIVED OF THIS IDEA, YOU'RE ON THE PLANE, WHAT KIND OF HOMEWORK DID YOU DO LEADING UP IT TO IT, YOU HAD A LOT OF TOUGH DOES DECISIONS IN THE PRE PRODUCTION PROCESS.

>> GREAT PRODUCERS, ASSOCIATE PRODUCERS OR PRODUCERS FOR JUST ONE SHOW BECAUSE THEY HAD CONNECTIONS. THEY FOUND, APPROVED ALL THESE STYLES AND PLACE AND THEY FOUND THESE STORY THAT'S WOULD BE INTERESTING. BUT LIKE ANY DOCUMENTARY WHAT YOU START WITH IS NOT WHAT YOU FINISH WITH. AT SOME POINT THE DOCUMENTARY SUBJECTS TAKE OVER AND YOU NO LONGER ARE GOING THAT WAY. BECAUSE YOU THINK THAT'S THE STORY. BECAUSE NOW THIS GUY IS REALLY TELLING THE STORY THAT YOU WANT THE AUDIENCE TO SEE. SO IT WAS A LOT OF KIND OF LET'S SHOW UP AND SEE WHAT'S THERE AND LET'S SHOOT AND THEN FIND THE NARRATIVE. YOU KNOW.

>> WERE THERE MOMENTS YOU FOUND DIFFICULT TO BE IN OR NAVIGATE BECAUSE MAYBE CULTURAL DIFFERENCES OR PERSPECTIVE AS A FATHER.

>> I HAVE A 14, 10-YEAR-OLD AND 21-YEAR-OLD ALL BOYS, ALL ARE IN SPORTS AND THEY ABOVE. SPORTS AND THEY BOX AND TO GO TO THESE PLACES BEYOND POVERTY AND SEE THE SUFFERING OF THESE KIDS, NONE OF THEM HAVE MANY OPPORTUNITIES IF ANY OPPORTUNITIES ASIDE FROM SOME OF THE FIGHTING, AND IT'S HEART BREAKING. IT REALLY IS HEART BREAKING. WHEN YOU'RE A FATHER YOU'RE A PARENT OF THE WORLD. YOU BECOME A PARENT. THOSE ARE THE TOUGHEST THINGS OF THE BOY WHO LOSES IN THAILAND, I DIDN'T KNOW HE WAS BEING BERATED BY THE COACH, I THOUGHT IT WAS A PEP TALK AND TALKED TO THE TRANSLATOR AND SAID WHAT DID HE SAY, HE SAID OH, HE DESTROYED HIM.

>> BRUTAL.

>> HE'S 15 YEARS OLD HE'S A BABY I HUGGED HIM AND SAID YOU'RE A CHAP. CHAMPION. CHAMPION. AFTER THAT HE BROKE DOWN AND WAS CRYING. THAT'S WHAT I REMEMBER THE MOST THE KIDS ALL OVER THE PLACE. GOT TO BE ROUGH TO FIGHT BACK FEELING OF HELPLESSNESS BUT SOUNDS LIKE YOU'RE HUMAN IN THAT MOMENT. YOU WANT TO OFFER HELP. BUT THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN REALLY, I'M NOT GOING TO CHANGE WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THEM FINANCIALLY. I MEAN I CAN'T. BUT, YOU KNOW, EVEN IN SENEGAL THE STADIUM COLLAPSES THE NIGHT BEFORE THE FIGHT AND WE WANT TO GATHER EVERYBODY AND TELL THEM YOU'RE THE FIGHTERS, THE CHAMPIONS, TELL THE GOVERNMENT THEY NEED TO MAKE CHANGES, THE STADIUM SHOULD NEVER COLLAPSE, THESE PEOPLE SHOULD NEVER DIE. AND THEY SIMPLY LOOKED AT US LIKE WE'RE CRAZY AND SAID IT'S IN -- GOD'S HANDS. SO WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO. IT WILL PASS. HOPEFULLY IT WON'T HAPPEN AGAIN. WITH YOU IF IT DOES IT'S NOT FOR US TO DO IT, IT'S FOR GOD TO DO IT. AND YOU HAVE TO PUT YOUR HANDS UP AND GO WAIT I CAN'T WAIT INTERFERE CULTURALLY HERE. YEAH.

>> YEAH NOT EVEN AS A FILMMAKER BUT IN GENERAL YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT YEARS AND YEARS, HUNDREDS OF YEARS IN TRADITION AND CULTURE AND -- THOUSANDS, EXACTLY. AND YOU'RE COMING IN AS THIS OUTSIDER TO DOCUMENT IT AND NATURALLY YOU BRING ALL YOUR LIFE EXPERIENCE. WHAT'S IT DONE, LET'S GO BACK THE OTHER WAY, NOW YOU'VE SEEN THAT AND HAVE TO GET BACK INTO THE REGULAR WORLD HOW HAS IT IMPACTED YOUR PERSPECTIVE ON THINGS.

>> SUCH A GREAT QUESTION. IN AMERICA WE LIVE IN A GATED COMMUNITY. A BIG, GATED, SAFE PLACE FOR THE MOST PART. I LAS VEGAS IN CALIFORNIA BY MALIBU WHERE PEOPLE HAVE FIVE CARS. THEY'RE WORRIED ABOUT WHAT THEIR SIXTH CAR IS GOING TO BE. YOU GO BACK HOME AND I LOOK AROUND AND I'M LIKE I HAVE TOO MUCH. I HAVE TOO MUCH. IT'S A LITTLE BIT EMBARRASSING. SO SOME OF THESE PLACES HAVE COMPLETELY CHANGED MY DNA, THE WAY I FEEL ABOUT HOW I WANT TO LIVE MY LIFE AND HOW I WANT MY KIDS TO LIVE THEIR LIFE. I THINK THAT'S WHAT TRAVEL DOES IN GENERAL. I REALLY DO. I THINK TRAVELING IS IMPORTANT. NOT JUST TO GO TO PLACES THAT ARE FILLED WITH TOURIST, TO GO TO ROME OR PARIS, IT'S TO GO TO THESE PLACES THAT I'VE BEEN TO WHERE THERE AREN'T MANY TOURISTS AND SEE HOW PEOPLE LIVE, TO UNDERSTAND YOURSELF.

>> ARE ANY OF YOUR KIDS INTO FIGHTING THE WAY YOU ARE, HAVE THEY TAKEN TO IT.

>> MY 21-YEAR-OLD SON REMY HAS BEEN BOXING. I STARTED HIM WHEN HE WAS A LITTLE KID AT MENDEZ BOXING WHERE I USED TO GO IN NEW YORK NOW HE'S 21 SPARRING THREE TIMES A WEEK AND ABOUT TO FINISH FILM SCHOOL. IT MADE HIM A BETTER MAN. HE'S COMPASSIONATE, A SWEET, SWEET, SWEET YOUNG MAN AND DOESN'T WALK AROUND AFRAID. THAT'S A PROBLEM. A LOT OF MEN DON'T KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE PUNCHED IN THE FACE. I OFTEN SAY THIS, SO THEY WALK AROUND INTIMIDATING PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY'RE AFRAID. THAT'S THE WORSE THING. THAT'S WHERE BULLYING COMES FROM. SO I WANT MY KIDS TO BE ABLE TO -- NOT TO FIGHT -- BUT TO DEPEND THEMSELVES IF THEY ARE FORCED TO.

>> YOU PISSED YOU DIDN'T BRING HIM WITH YOU.

>> YOU KNOW HE CAME WITH ME ON A MOVIE I DID IN CHINA AND I TOOK HIP TO THAILAND, AND TRAINED MUAY THAI FOR THREE WEEKS IN PHUKET SO WE'LL GO ANOTHER SEASON.

>> HOW WAS THE TRAINING LIKE HE'S BEST, BETTER THAN HIS OLD MAN.

>> NOT YET. ONLY A MATTER OF TIME I CAN KEEP GOING. I'M 136 YEARS OLD.

>> LOOK WHAT SALMON DOES TO YOU, FANTASTIC. WHAT ARE SOME OF THE PLACES FOR SEASON TWO YOU'D LIKE TO GO.

>> YEAH, WE'VE -- WE'RE KIND OF TOSSING IT AROUND IN THE EVENT THAT NETFLIX WANTS TO DO ANOTHER SEASON. WE WANT TO GO TO EITHER THE REGION OF THE WORLD WHERE KHABIB IS FROM WHO BEAT CONOR McGREGOR. IT'S IFFY BUT THEY'RE ANCIENT GREKO WRESTLING, CHAMPIONS AND A LOT OF UFC GUYS COME OUT OF THAT REGION. MY FRIEND WHO IS A COACH WOULD GO WITH ME. THERE'S A SPORT THEY DO IN FLORENCE WHICH IS LYING RUGBY ON HORSEBACK. I'D LIKE TO EXPLORE THE NAVY SEAL COMMUNITY BECAUSE THAT'S A FIGHT CULTURE. SO IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE DEFINED TO A SPECIFIC PLACE. IT COULD BE THE CULTURE OF FIGHT. LIKE ISRAEL.

>> EXACTLY. THAT'S WHAT IT'S REALLY ABOUT, YES YOU'RE GOING TO DIFFERENT GEOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS BUT TALKING TO INDIVIDUALS AND GETTING DEEP INTO THE CULTURE AND THEIR WHOLE LIFE AND ANCESTRY. IN EPISODE THREE WE'RE SEEING TRADITIONAL VERSUS THE NEW -- DID YOU KNOW THAT STORY WAS GOING TO BE THERE?

>> NO AND IN THE BEGINNING BECAUSE HE WAS TRAINING THE REALLY, REALLY IMPOVERISHED KIDS IN THE COUNTRY SIDE THERE MANY MYANMAR AND WE THOUGHT HE WAS POOR AS WELL THAT HE LIVED THERE AND IT TURNED OUT THAT PO LIVED IN A BUILDING HIS PARENTS BOUGHT FOR THEM. HIS KIDS WERE EATING RICE AND HE'D GO TRAIN. IT WAS A BIT WEIRD. I DIDN'T KNOW HOW I FELT ABOUT HIM, I SAID I DON'T WANT TO GET IN THE WAY OF THIS, BECAUSE IT'S HAPPENING REALTIME, AND HE'S PART OF THE FIGHT COMMUNITY AND LOT OF GUYS DON'T LIKE HIM. AND THEN THERE WAS THE ELDER GUY WHO WAS A TRADITIONALIST, HE LIVED LIKE A MONK WITH HIS LITTLE DESK, YOU KNOW, THAT SPORT IS HEAD BUTTS AND WHO KNOWS WHERE THAT GOES. I DON'T THINK IT LEAVES MYANMAR. BUT IT IS A GOOD CULTURALLY A GOOD THING TO SEE, THE OLD AND THE NEW. YEAH.

>> WE'RE GOING TO RUN OUT IN TIME IN A SECOND AND I PROMISED THE AUDIENCE COULD QUESTION, WE'LL GO THERE IN A BIT. BUT SERIES HAS BEEN OUT A BIT, LOT OF PEOPLE WATCHED IT, GOING TO ASK ABOUT EPISODE FOUR, I'M SURE YOU HAD A REASON NOT SHOWING A CONCLUSIVE END TO THE FIGHT. PEOPLE WERE LIKE WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO ME.

>> I KNOW IT'S TERRIBLE. I KIND OF ACQUIESCED TO PAT McKINLLY WHO SAID I DON'T CARE WHO WINS SHS IT'S NOT ABOUT THAT, WE KNOW THE JOURNEY THE GUYS TOOK TO GET HERE, AND WHAT THE COUNTRY HAD TO DEAL WITH THE COLLAPSING OF THE STADIUM AND AWFUL THE POLITIC ALL OF THE POLITICS AND IT DOESN'T MATTER, THEY BOTH WON.

>> I KNOW FROM A STORE TELLING STANDPOINT, BUT YOU MENTIONED IT EARLY.

>> THE DIRECTOR I FIGHT MATT HUGHES AND HE DID ALL OF THE MUSE I. THE GUY'S A GENIUS. AN ABSOLUTE GENIUS.

>> ON THIS HE DID THE MUSIC.

>> HE DOES ALL OF THE MUSIC ON KINGDOM ON THIS.

>> AMAZING. THAT'S ONE OF THE ONLY THINGS, NOT THAT I WATCHED A MILLION FIGHT DOCUMENTARY BUT IN GENERAL THE POP CULTURE PERCEPTION OF THE FIGHT WORLD HEAVY GUITAR, AGGRESSIVE, THIS WAS SUCH A CHILL SOUND TRACK AND IT WORKED WITH A LOT MORE BLUESY TONES.

>> YOU GO THE OTHER WAY AND IT BECOMES MORE EMOTIONAL.

>> YEAH.

>> IT BECOMES LESS OF THAT NOISE IN YOUR HEAD THAT YOU ATTRIBUTE A FIGHTER WALKING OUT TO A FIGHT WITH. BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO HEAR THAT. I DON'T FEEL ANYTHING. YOU KNOW. IT'S MORE CEREBRAL. LISTEN, I DID A MOVIE FOR NETFLIX WEE MAN HE CUT THAT AND DID ALL OF THE MUSIC IN THAT. I'M SURPRISED HE STILL WORKS WITH ME BECAUSE HE CAN DO ANYTHING HE WANTS TO.

>> I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH YOU CAN SAY ABOUT THE ADAPTATION OF THE RAID.

>> YEAH WE ARE, ABOUT TO GO INTO PREPRODUCTION ON THE RAID. WE HAVE OUR VERSION OF THE RAID.

>> I GOT TO ASK YOU, A FILM THAT'S HELD IN SUCH HIGH REGARD, YOU MUST FEEL AN IMMENSE AMOUNT OF PRESSURE AND RESPONSIBILITY TO THAT.

>> YEAH.

>> BECAUSE IT'S ONE OF THOSE FILMS THAT ISN'T EVEN THAT OLD BUT IS ALREADY A CLASSIC.

>> LISTEN WE'VE PAINSTAKINGLY REWRITTEN THE SCRIPT SO IT'S A NEW VERSION. ONE OF THE PRODUCERS DIRECTED THE ORIGINAL. WE ALL SAT DOWN AND SAID IT'S NOT GOING TO BE A REMAKE, I'M GOING TO GET KILLED FOR THIS, IT'S GOING TO BE A RETELLING OF A VERY SIMILAR SITUATION. THE STORY IS HEAVY ON THE TWO BROTHERS. IT'S MORE STORY. LISTEN, I'M NOT EVEN GOING TO GET NEAR THE RAID BECAUSE IT'S A DIFFERENT THING. BUT MY PARTNER HAS DIRECTED NARK AND SMOKING ACES AND THE GRAY. IT'S IN GOOD HANDS. SO, YEAH.

>> IF THERE'S ANYONE WITH LEGITIMATE PASSION, IF I AM TO TRUST ANYBODY TO DO IT I TRUST WHAT YOU ARE DOING WITH IT.

>> THANK YOU.

>> LET'S GET SOME QUESTIONS.

>> HI, IF YOU WEREN'T WHO YOU ARE WHO WOULD YOU BE.

>> I WOULD BE ROBERT DOWNEY JR.

>> NOT EVEN IN THE MOVIE.

>> NO I JUST WANT TO BE ROBERT DOWNEY JR. HA, HA.

>> WE GOT COUPLE MORE? GOT MORE MICROPHONES. NEXT QUESTION RIGHT HERE. AND WE'LL COME BACK.

>> HI GUYS. SO A FEW YEARS BACK THERE WAS A SHOW ON CABLE CALLED HUMAN WEAPON WHERE TWO MMA FIGHTERS DID ALMOST EXACTLY SAME THING YOU DID FOR FIGHT WORLD WHERE THEY TRAVELLED, LEARNED AND TESTED THEMSELVES AGAINST FIGHTERS THERE.

>> YEAH.

>> SO DID THAT SHOW INFLUENCE OR INSPIRE YOU?

>> NO IT DIDN'T. IT DIDN'T AT ALL. I JUST REMEMBER IT NOW THAT YOU'RE SAYING IT. I REMEMBER WATCHING IT. THAT WAS MORE GEARED TOWARDS WHAT THE FIGHT STYLES WERE AND IF THEY COULD COMPETE. ALMOST MORE OF A TUTORIAL ABOUT WHAT IT WAS. THIS IS FAR DIFFERENT IN THE SENSE THAT I'M MUCH MORE INTERESTED IN THE CULTURE OF FIGHT THAN THE ACTUAL FIGHT ITSELF. BUT THAT WAS A GREAT SHOW, I REMEMBER WATCHING IT AND I ENJOYED IT. IT WAS A LOT OF FUN TO WATCH.

>> THANK YOU FOR THAT QUESTION. THERE'S A GREAT LINE, THE TRAILER, IT'S NOT ABOUT FIGHTING IT'S ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO FIGHT.

>> YEAH.

>> IT'S A GREAT LINE TO SUM IT. EXACTLY IT.

>> IT'S TRUE.

>> WE GOT ONE MORE RIGHT BACK OVER HERE.

>> OKAY. MY QUESTION IS WHAT MOVIE HAS CHANGED YOUR LIFE THE MOST?

>> OH, THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION. YOU KNOW, AS FAR AS CHANGING MY PERSONAL LIFE THE MOST, I DID A MOVIE LONG AGO CALLED "WARRIOR” WITH TOM HARDY WHO IS NOW VENOM AND JOE EDGETON WHO IS WONDERFUL DIRECTOR ACTOR AND NOW DIRECTOR. IT WAS ABOUT MMA. I PLAYED THE COACH. THAT MOVIE EXPOSED ME TO PEOPLE WHO HAD NO IDEA WHO I WAS IN THE FILM BUSINESS AND IT CHANGED THE COURSE OF MY CAREER. GREAT QUESTION.

>> THANK YOU FOR THAT. WE'RE GOING TO WRAP IT UP IN JUST A SECOND. I WAS THINKING BECAUSE WE GOT THE MARVEL QUESTION, YOU SAID, DOING SOME RESEARCH, WHEN YOU TYPE YOUR NAME IN, YOU SAID ONE PASSING COMMENT LIKE A DAY AGO AND THERE'S 13 STORIES ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK --

>> -- I KNOW I'M GOING TO GET IN TROUBLE. DO IT. SAY IT.

>> PEOPLE CAN LOOK IT UP AND SEE WHO CARES.

>> YEAH.

>> HERE YOU ARE FAIRLY REMOVED FROM THAT WORLD AT THIS POINT, DONE A PHENOMENAL JOB AND YET YOU CAN SAY THE TINIEST THING AND IT'S A SPARK. DOES THAT BLOW YOUR MIND.

>> IT'S AMAZING. I'M NOT USED TO THAT. I NEVER HAVE TO MONITOR MYSELF THAT WAY. IN THE SECOND MOVIE I'M IN IT FOR 20 MINUTES IN THE THIRD MOVIE I'M IN IT FOR 11 SECONDS. PEOPLE WILL SAY WHO DOES HE THINK HE IS ANSWERING THAT QUESTION, I DON'T THINK I'M ANYBODY. MAYBE IT WILL BE AN AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN WHO IS CAPTAIN AMERICA. I HEAR ALL KINDS OF THINGS, LIKE YOU HEAR THINGS. LISTEN, I'M SURE IT'S GOING TO GO ALL OVER THE PLACE AND I WILL GET A CALL FROM MY AGENT GOING HEY MARVEL IS CALLING US, LIKE, I DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING.

>> ALL I COULD THINK OF, I SEARCHED YOUR NAME AND TEN DIFFERENT HEADLINES, I'M LIKE POOR GUY.

>> THEY'LL CALL ME BAD NAMES LIKE YOU'RE A LOSER, YOU WOULDN'T EVEN IN THE MOVIE. OKAY WHY ARE YOU WATCHING ME.

>> YOU SAID ONE THING ABOUT WHAT YOU MIGHT LIKE TO SEE AND THE INTERNET BLUE UP.

>> I THOUGHT MY FRIEND MACKEY MIGHT BECOME CAPTAIN AMERICA.

>> COOL THOUGHT.

>> YOU COULD BE CAPTAIN AMERICA.

>> THAT'S VERY GENEROUS BUT THERE'S ONE PERSON WILLING HERE -- STOP ME FROM DOING THAT.

>> I'LL NEVER BE CAPTAIN AMERICA, THAT'S FOR SURE. HA, HA.

>> FRANK, YOU KNOW, THE IT IS ALWAYS SO AWESOME TO HAVE YOU ON THE SHOW.

>> APPRECIATE IT.

>> THE INCREDIBLE SERIES "FIGHT WORLD" ON NETFLIX CHECK IT OUT. IT'S UNBELIEVABLE. CONGRATULATIONS ON EVERYTHING GOING ON. LOOK FORWARD TO NEXT TIME YOU COME BACK.

>> APPRECIATE IT.

>> EVERYBODY MAKE SOME NOISE FOR FRANK RIGHT HERE. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] [ MUSIC ] [ MUSIC ] SOUNDS GREAT. THANK FOR YOUR HELP.
