The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) has nominated UFC 25 Years in Short as Outstanding Edited Sports Special or Series, in the 40th Annual Sports Emmy® Awards. “Breaking Barriers,” one episode in the series, was cut by partner/editor Einar Thorsteinsson of bicoastal Union Editorial. With additional editorial by Jed Stuber, the project was written and produced by Matt Ogens (repped for spots by Bullitt), a frequent collaborator with Union, which provided post production services has well. “Breaking Barriers” is the story of Ronda Rousey blazing a trail for female fighters and the obstacles they had to literally and metaphorically break through to be taken seriously. The film owes its intense visual flair to Ogens and DP Samson Chan, complemented by powerful original music, courtesy of Greg Kuehn.

This is the official trailer for “Breaking Barriers,” which debuted in December 2018 on UFC Fight Pass. 

"Breaking Barriers" was produced by Joshua Roth, with Executive Producer Dana White, and Executive Producers Craig Borsari, Chris Kartzmark and Adam Condal.
