As FIGHTER continues its global romp and if you haven't had a chance to see the film we wanted to share this note recently sent to MMACLASSICS.COM - “I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the great time I had at the premier of "Fighter", the documentary about Randy Couture on March 2 in Columbus. Everything was perfect. The movie, the staff and meeting Randy Couture was unreal. This was a once in a life time event and I thank everyone for giving me the opportunity to be a part of it.

Thanks again. Gary Adkins, Columbus Ohio”

'FIGHTER, a documentary', looks back to capture a slice of sports history as Randy "The Natural" Couture chases his first UFC™ Belt and beyond. The film "takes you deep into the world of Couture… a man who is now considered the personification of everything good about this sport"

Winner of the "BEST DOCUMENTARY" at the FAIF Film Festival in Hollywood, CA "BEST BIOGRAPHY" at the NYFVI Film festival in New York, NY, and "BEST SPORTS DOCUMENTARY" at the NYIIF Festival in Los Angeles, CA 'FIGHTER' provides a riveting myriad of perspectives while taking an irreverent yet brutally honest look inside the minds of MMA fighters.
