"Over the last twenty years, the sport of mixed martial arts has grown from a controversial spectacle into a billion dollar phenomenon. As the stakes have risen for MMA, so have the numbers of aspiring athletes grinding to reach the top. Some chase the mythic promise that an ordinary man can transform into a champion. Most fight simply to test their mettle. Fightville documents MMA as a microcosm of life, a physical manifestation of that brutal contest called the American Dream. In Fightville, men are not born, but built through self-determination, hard work and faith". ––Directors Petra Epperlein & Michael Tucker.
Fightville opens in New York, LA, and on itunes, Friday April 20th.
