Not a fan of mixed martial arts (MMA) and hardly follow the sport, but I found this documentary fascinating and insightful.
Both my brothers train in MMA styles at their gyms, but they do not fight competitively. After watching this documentary, I'm very glad of it. I also learned a greater appreciation for what MMA entails.
Never saccharine or emotionally manipulative, the film presents an honest depiction of MMA fighters at different levels in the sport, their training, and some of their personal struggles. I found the personal reasons for the fighters' pursuit of the sport to be very compelling.
Also provides information about the MMA culture, its increasing popularity, and its path to recognition as a sport.
