I don't usually watch movies with women inside the ring hurting one another. But this movie pique my interest because of the unique approach of incorporating a love story into the world of ring fighting. Can't wait to see this movie.


What does the Fox say?
You wrote a good review but to be honest, the love story doesn't interest me. I only watch MMA dramas for the fight scenes. I don't care about the story line. Just show me the bruises. LOL.

I am a fan of Women's MMA from the time of Ronda Rousey to the time the era of Amanda Nunes and up to now. These women are underappreciated compared to their male compatriots. I am happy there is a movie that represents these women now.


I love that they cast a woman who looks like a regular lady instead of a Hollywood Barbie Bombshell.
