By now, most people know that veteran combat sports broadcaster Mauro Ranallo has revealed a very personal side of himself in a new documentary that is about to launch via Showtime Sports.
“Bipolar Rock ‘N Roller” takes a look at Ranallo’s lifelong battle with mental illness. The film explores Ranallo’s career, including his work on the two biggest pay-per-view events in television history, and his relentless pursuit of a childhood dream despite seemingly insurmountable odds. Through the deeply personal portrait, Ranallo hopes that the film might inspire others to persevere in pursuing their dreams despite the challenges of a mental health condition.
In a recent interview on The MMA Hour, Ranallo went behind the scenes of the documentary and talked at length about what led him to do the documentary in the first place, how it has affected him, and what he hopes comes from exposing such a personal side of his life.
