I agree with this, to a point.
I enjoyed the movie and, throughout the whole thing, I really thought it was showing MMA in a decent light. Showing the fighters as people, instead of barbaric participants in "human cockfighting" like some of the public still thinks.

Things took a quick turn and I was seriously disappointed with how they handled the final fight. No ref would ever let a fight continue when a fighter's injured like that.
I understand it was for dramatic effect and it fit the character's personality, but in terms of a realistic portrayal of pro MMA fighting, that final scene really sunk my confidence in recommending the movie to non MMA-fans.
