Solid Documentary
7 November 2018 | by beakermccabe-57332See all my reviews

I found this a very interesting documentary. It makes the fighters human. I have been a longtime fan of both boxing and MMA, but truthfully I don't believe I looked at the individuals in these sports to the aspect of the "why" they are fighters. What motivates them to do what they do?

I am not sure that this will draw in those who aren't fans of the sport. Although it is an interesting film, to truly enjoy it I do believe that you do need to be a fan of the sport to appreciate it completely.

Overall, if you like any of the fighting sports, this is a worthy watch.
