MMA Documentary Fightville set to have Canadian Premiere on Eve of UFC129 in Toronto

MMA Documentary Fightville to Premiere at Hot Docs on April 28, 20011

Leading up to UFC 129 Fight Week, we wanted to let MMA Fans know that FIGHTVILLE, the new film MMA featuring UFC fighters Tim Credeur and Dustin Poirier, has been chosen as one of the opening night films for Hot Docs, the largest documentary festival in N. America. The film will have its Canadian premiere on April 28th at the Winter Garden theatre on the eve of UFC Fan Expo. UFC fighters Tim Credeur and Dustin Poirier will be at the screening to meet with press and fans.

The film focuses on the world of an up-and-coming feeder promotion called USA-MMA run by Gil Guillory in Lafayette, Louisiana--a place where fighting, for many, is as much ritual as it is sport. In FIGHTVILLE, adversity is a lifestyle, life is a contest and the area around Lafayette, which includes a neighborhood that is the namesake of the film, has no shortage of fighters. Many of them train with veteran UFC fighter Tim Credeur at his Gladiators Academy, where more than just making champions, he seeks to “build better men”. One of those fighters, Dustin Poirier, quickly became the focus of the film, after a series of dramatic victories. “The first time I saw Dustin fight, I was immediately taken with him. You could just tell that the kid was going places,” says co-director Mike Tucker. And go places he did, Poirier, defying all odds, recently defeated Josh Grispi at his UFC debut. “Dustin defines dedication for me. More than just fighting, FIGHTVILLE is about what it takes to be the best at anything,” says Tucker.

UPDATE: MMA Fans can also see a special screening of Fightville at Action Fest in Asheville, NC on April 9-10. UFC Fighter Dustin Poirier will be on hand to meet fans.
