Not an "Mma" movie, but if you haven't seen Ghost Dog, it's a weird, cool, martial arts type movie. Forest Whitaker plays a NYC loner who lives by the samurai code. Darker Than Amber, a 70s private eye flick on youtube, has some brutal fight scenes. And, any biker movie from the 70s with William Smith, a legit badass who was a military lhw boxing champ. (He was also a spy pilot, Russian language expert and in the bodybuilding Hall Of Fame. Busy dude).

Great soundtrack too

Check out the TV series called Kingdom also. It was great!

Summary

Alvey Kulina (Frank Grillo) owns and runs a mixed martial arts gym called Navy St. Gym in Venice, California, with his girlfriend, Lisa (Kiele Sanchez). He helps people work out and trains fighters along with his sons, Nate (Nick Jonas) and Jay (Jonathan Tucker). Jay has a drug and alcohol problem, but puts it aside to start fighting again. Ryan Wheeler (Matt Lauria) used to be a great fighter until he was sent to prison after a few mistakes in his life. After Ryan's release, Alvey wants him to fight again and be his trainer as it would be good publicity for the gym. Lisa is initially opposed to this, as she and Ryan used to be engaged, but eventually accepts it for the sake of the gym. Alvey's estranged ex-wife, Christina (Joanna Going), is a drug addict and prostitute, with sporadic contact with Kulina and her sons.
