Directed by the accomplished filmmaking duo of Petra Epperlein and Michael Tucker, FIGHTVILLE examines the art and sport of mixed martial arts. While the film focuses on the Louisiana fight scene, FIGHTVILLE is a microcosm of life, a physical manifestation of the American Dream and the relentless dedication required of all who hope to attain it.
“This is not just another film about MMA,” says Tucker. “This is a film about what it takes to be the best at anything and we hope that FIGHTVILLE will introduce a new audience to the beauty and passion of the sport.”
FIGHTVILLE will premiere in theatres and on demand on April 20th, just three weeks before Poirier headlines UFC on Fuel when he takes on “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung on May 15th.
