Dhafir Harris, aka Dada 5000, the fighter/promoter made famous by the Netflix documentary Dawg Fight, will now be broadcasting his bare-knuckled, backyard-style fights in a non-threatening and easy to use pay-per-view format.

Broadcasting from his website.,, Harris already has 8 fights scheduled, each event costing $9.99. The first fight was June 5th. 

The pay-per-view fights promise to be just as extreme as the fights from the documentary, the only difference is there will be a medical staff on call and it'll be held in a slightly nicer location. 

Dawg Fight, which was directed by Billy Corben (Cocaine Cowboys and ESPN's 30 for 30 episode, "The U"), was released last May on Netflix, put a spotlight on the bareknuckle brawling subculture of the South Miami suburb known as West Perrine. The story followed Dada 5000, as he navigatde the wold of illegal backyard fighting.
