'Fightville' made it's way on to the big screen last night in Lafayette . It was a special night at the Grand 16 and special screening for everyone who was a part of the film. 'Fightville' is a documentary about MMA fighting in Acadiana featuring, Gil Guillory, Dustin Poirier, Tim Credeur and more. The movie will open in select theatres on April 20.

Over the last decade, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) has grown from a controversial no-holds-barred gladiatorial sideshow into a billion dollar phenomenon eclipsing boxing as the dominant combat sport in the world. But far from Las Vegas, in sweat-soaked gyms and low-rent arenas across America, the big lights are but a dream. Here, men fight to test their mettle, fortified with the mythic promise that an ordinary man can transform into a champion.

FIGHTVILLE is about the art and sport of fighting: a microcosm of life, a physical manifestation of that other brutal contest called the American Dream, where men are not born, but built through self determination, hard work and faith. It may be a myth, but in FIGHTVILLE, that’s what champions are made of.
