THE HURT BUSINESS Takes On The World Of MMA In The New Documentary Trailer

I have to admit it's a little awkward promoting a documentary in which one of its subjects just landed in a controversial spotlight, and in lieu of this, surely, former UFC 200 prospect Jon "Bones" Jones has some steps to take to work on his own issues. However, consider, if you will, the gruesome and physically demanding nature of mixed martial arts, and the seemingly odd-yet-fitting sense of love felt by its practioners, prolific and upcoming.

That world is now center stage for writer and director Vlad Yudin (Generation Iron) with the upcoming release of his newest sports documentary, The Hurt Business. The film opens this September, and will undoubtedly include some of the very controveries embedded in the sport apart from the grueling hardships of being a professional fighter climbing the ladder.

From the producers of ‘Bowling for Columbine’, ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’ and ‘Generation Iron’, ‘The Hurt Business’ details the lives of various martial arts superstars, including Ronda Rousey and Jon Jones, competing in one of the fastest growing sports in the world and the struggles and triumphs that accompany all careers in cage fighting. Besides featuring legends, such as Georges St-Pierre, and up-and-comers in the sport the film covers the history of mixed martial arts fighting, from the coliseums of ancient Greece to modern day venues such as the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, all expertly narrated by Kevin Costner. Themes of injury both mental and physical are explored and the question is raised; is it worth it to sacrifice one’s mind and body for sport?
The latest trailer is making the rounds this month and so feel free to check it out below!
