An up-close but superficial portrait of aspiring MMA stars as they fight their way through the Cajun Country regional circuit.

"Fightville" feels authentic about this world, where success may be measured in wins, but the balance of unrelenting brutality and self-discipline needed for those wins is a trickier equation.
The filmmakers take a mostly effective Hoop Dreams approach in showing how young hopefuls test the limits of their abilities and their economic situation.
Audience Reviews for Fightville
Boring individuals talk about their aspirations to reach the top of a boring sport. Perfect to fall asleep to.
"We build better men." A documentary that focuses on a group of young athletes in southern Louisiana as they work toward achieving their goals of becoming professional mixed martial arts fighters.
Fightville is an MMA documentary that follows the semi-pro careers of a pair of fighters, a fight trainer(Tim Credeur) and a promoter for the organization in which they fight. Although amateurish in nature, the film is fairly entertaining with a slight but possibly underdeveloped human interest side. With a run time of only 85 minutes, this is a must see documentary for MMA lovers.
