If you’re an MMA fan, chances are you’ve heard of Tapout, a clothing brand that helped transform the sport from the controversial spectacle it began as into the international sensation it is today. The Tapout brand was founded by a extraordinary man named Charles “Mask” Lewis—the first non-fighter to be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame— in the year 1997, and the new documentary Mask celebrates that founder’s incredible life.
See a trailer for the documentary below.
After years of work, and months of anticipation, the full Mask documentary was finally released today (April 3,) and is available on pretty much every major streaming platform out there, including Xbox One, PS4, Amazon, iTunes and Netflix.
Ahead of the film’s official debut, director Bobby Razak hosted an exclusive pre-screening in Los Angeles, which was attended by BJPENN.COM’s Randy Garcia.
At the conclusion of this screening, Razak partook in a quick Q&A, providing some extra context on his relationship with Mask, and on detailing the film’s inception. See video of this Q&A, which comes courtesy of Jule “Third Eye” Hall, below.
