FIGHTVILLE takes us inside the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), a controversial sport that over the past decade has developed from a brutal gladiatorial sideshow into a billion-dollar international industry. But FIGHTVILLE looks beyond the bright lights of the Las Vegas main event, focusing instead on the personal dreams and destinies of a group of fighters, promoters and trainers deep within the American South. They include current MMA phenom Dustin "The Diamond" Poirier and veteran trainer "Crazy" Tim Credeur. Training at strip mall gyms and spilling their blood in local rodeo arenas, very few of the fighters who enter the cage will become champions. A reflection of the American Dream itself, FIGHTVILLE shows us the personal and physical sacrifices required of those who do.
