Watch the highlights from UFC Iran 10 -- you read that right, UFC in Iran

Look, we don't know if we're victim to some elaborate troll job. If we are, kudos to the trickster for pulling one over on us. There's this guy, let's just call him the 'Iranian Dana White' that has insisted  he's been running a healthy MMA organization in Iran appropriately called 'UFC.' He goes by 'Ali dehghani sheeva' and he bravely laughs in the face of intellectual property infringement. Dehgani has been posting on The Underground for years and what was once thought of as some delusional troll job now has a video backing it. Dehgani released a 'highlight reel' of his most recent event, UFC Iran 10, and has even released a picture of the current UFC Iran champion holding the highly coveted belt. You can even view the poster of the event right here, complete with a picture of the UFC logo and an Iranian flag thrown in for good measure. Of course, you can check out the 'official' UFC Iran site to fulfill all your daily Iranian MMA news needs.

This morning I received an email from the promoter of UFC Iran with a highlight video of his most recent event -- which was held last year. I guess technology is a little slow out there. In the constant pursuit of providing you with more international MMA, we present to you UFC Iran 10 - the highlight reel.

I don't know what to say other than that I am incredibly grateful that I do NOT live in Iran.

My country is a beautiful place. Don't be fooled by what Western media shows you. Trust me. What the media shows you here would be the equivalent of, if a reporter went deep into the heart of Mississippi and showed you the bottom of the bottom from the South. Then your whole perception of America would be the South. We all know that is not the case.

I'm a big supporter of the UFC, but it's funny how they essentially worked to be to MMA what Kleenex is to Tissue Paper. In this sense it's easy to see why this would happen. Why promote MMA in Iran when UFC makes so much more sense to the common person?

C'mon Zeus, I browsed their website for a little bit and they definitely stepped their game up when it comes to special FX. They have an entire arsenal of free fights on youtube as well:
