This is absolutely one of the best sport-movies I have seen so far. The constant variation of the shots from matches and several moments that made me feel for the competitors, helps to mak this a nearly perfect sport-movie. With already knowing how the sport MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) work out, it didn´t took long before I was into the movie. But the characteristics of a good sport movie is not how good they are in their sport, it´s what happends outside the game and how it affects the the characters and the outcome of the story. And Thats why this movie is so good. I think the best performance in the movie is of Nick Nolte. I would not be suprised if he got nominated or took home the Oscar for best supporting role.
