An intimate and gripping journey into the world of mixed martial arts, as Jon Fitch prepares for the fight of his life against perennial UFC Champ Georges St. Pierre. While Fitch focuses on his training, the story weaves through the daily triumphs and challenges of the other fighters at the American Kickboxing Academy (AKA). Fighters battle their inner demons and financial hardship, striving to make it in this world of blood, sweat and tears. The stakes are high as Fitch prepares for the most climactic moment of his life, which culminates in an epic battle of heart and the human spirit.
What a great film!
If you're a UFC fan, it's the best ever made. If you're a documentary film lover then you're going to really enjoy this story. Gives you a real glimpse into not only what it takes to succeed as a UFC fighter, but how much effort and determination we can muster when we dig deep down and give it our all.
Although Jon Fitch gets a lot of flak for his fighting style, he has always been one of my favorite fighters because of his technique and heart. I enjoyed the documentary and have been waiting for its release for quite some time, however it was more a documentary about AKA than Jon Fitch. Would have been nice to see a little bit more of his training and more interviews with Fitch himself. Also it would have been nice if the UFC allowed them to use footage of his fight. Anyway it was still worth the wait, and the music is really good.
Best MMA film
I was never really a Fitch fan but this film really shows that he is the hardest working fighter in MMA. Freaking great film! TWO THUMBS UP!
