Over the last decade, Mixed Martial Arts has grown from a controversial no-holds-barred gladiatorial sideshow into a billion dollar phenomenon. MMA has eclipsed boxing as THE dominant combat sport in the world and has taken a huge chunk of the viewing audience away from the scripted world of professional wrestling.
Now far removed from its beginnings as a Las Vegas attraction & the sweat-soaked gyms and low-rent arenas across America it grew from, the big lights are a realistic dream. In Fightville, men fight to test their mettle, fortified with promise that an ordinary man can transform himself into a champion.
Directed by Petra Epperlein and Michael Tucker, Fightville takes us to Southern Louisiana, where a group of young athletes, including future MMA powerhouse Dustin Poirier, strive towards personal and professional greatness.
Check out the trailer below, Fightville hits selected cinemas April 20th.
