UWFi Bushido

UWFi Bushido Now streaming all 75 hour-long episodes of Bushido: Way of the Warrior featuring legends like Kazushi Sakuraba, Gary Albright, Dan Severn, Kiyoshi Tamura, and Bad News Allen! UWFi was a proto-MMA organization that aimed to show that real, tough, submission wrestling could draw large crowds again. Their aim was to bring back credibility and respect back to the world of professional wrestling. Combining elements of kickboxing, Sambo, jiu-jitsu, and catch-as-catch-can wrestling into a new exciting, dangerous and deadly promotion, they began moving professional wrestling away from the theatrics and back toward sport. The promotion was also lent guidance by shoot-style professional wrestling legends Lou Thesz (acting commissioner of the UWFi), Billy Robinson (head coach), and Danny Hodge (coach).
