Fightville movie scene

Dustin Poirier reigns in Fightville.

The 2011 documentary Fightville chronicles the story of real-life Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighters and their struggles to make it to the top.

Directed by Petra Epperlein and Michael Tucker (How to Fold a Flag), Fightville reveals how MMA has taken hold in the American heartland, where modern-day gladiators battle with bare fists and feet in strip mall gyms and dusty rodeo arenas, desperate for glory and a shot at the big time. In Lafayette, Louisiana, far from the glamorous and lucrative world of Las Vegas bouts, pro hopefuls Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier (currently the world’s No. 3 contender) and Albert Stainback fight tooth and nail for their chance to snag the American Dream.

Fightville popped up at a handful of festivals over the past year (including South by Southwest and the Woodstock Film Festival) before a small roll-out to a couple of theaters in New York and Los Angeles.

No bonus features are on the DVD or Blu-ray for the unrated movie.
