Bollocks.
It's true. One of the original investors in UFC 1 was a filmmaker named John Milius. Milius was responsible for either writing or directing a lot great "guy movies" such as Magnum Force with Dirty Harry and Conan the Barbarian. This is pure speculation on my part - but I attribute the alligator filled moat idea to Milius.
