'Fightville' MMA documentary with UFCs Dustin Poirier: Release date details and video trailer

New York, NY (March 1st, 2012) - Deep in the heart of Louisiana, far from mixed martial arts' highest stage, a group of young athletes train and compete in the proving grounds of MMA. Filmed over two years, FIGHTVILLE, a groundbreaking documentary, follows the lives of several fighters including breakout UFC star Dustin "The Diamond" Poirier and his mentor UFC veteran "Crazy" Tim Credeur as they compete in the regional circuit.

Directed by the accomplished filmmaking duo of Petra Epperlein and Michael Tucker, FIGHTVILLE examines the art and sport of mixed martial arts. While the film focuses on the Louisiana fight scene, FIGHTVILLE is a microcosm of life, a physical manifestation of the American Dream and the relentless dedication required of all who hope to attain it.

"This is not just another film about MMA," says Tucker. "This is a film about what it takes to be the best at anything and we hope that FIGHTVILLE will introduce a new audience to the beauty and passion of the sport."

FIGHTVILLE will premiere in theatres and on demand on April 20th, just three weeks before Poirier headlines UFC on Fuel when he takes on "The Korean Zombie" Chan Sung Jung on May 15th.
