Director Pat Kondelis is not a stranger to telling stories where crime and sports intersect, and his latest documentary on “Lightning“ Lee Murray is no exception.
And when it comes to extraordinary stories in the MMA world, there’s an argument to be made that the biggest jaw-dropper of them all is the infamous Securitas heist, which involved Lee Murray.
Murray’s story has been a fascinating one not just due to the heist and its aftermath, but also because of the potential he had, the arguments of what could have been, and his current predicament.
In his latest documentary titled Catching Lighting, Kondelis and company delve into Lee’s upbringing, fighting career, an in-depth look at the heist itself, and the aftermath of it all. The four-part series was released on Showtime in April, with exclusive interviews and a ton of detail.
Kondelis was kind enough to spare some of his time to speak with Bloody Elbow regarding the project and the complexities of the Lee Murray persona.
