After the recent sale of UFC for $4 billion, it’s safe to say that MMA is the fastest growing sport we’ve witnessed in the last two decades.
Names such as Ronda Rousey, Jon Jones and Conor McGregor are now part of the mainstream and everyone wants a piece of their world. Now the brilliant minds at Vladar Films are bringing you beyond the cage and into the lives of some of the greatest fighters in the sport, including Rousey, Jones and MMA legend Georges St-Pierre (GSP). They not only give you a taste of what these athletes go through to be the best, but also what they REALLY go through to be an MMA fighter.
From the producers of Bowling for Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11 and Generation Iron, THE HURT BUSINESS details the lives of various martial arts superstars, including Ronda Rousey and Jon Jones, competing in the fastest growing sport in the world and the struggles and triumphs that accompany all careers in cage fighting.Besides featuring both legends, such as Georges St-Pierre, and up-and-comers in the sport the film covers the history of mixed martial arts fighting, from the coliseums of ancient Greece to modern day venues such as the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, all expertly narrated by Kevin Costner.
Themes of injury both mental and physical are explored and the question is raised; is it worth it to sacrifice one’s mind and body for sport?
