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.
