    • Synopsis
    • In 2003 Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt fighter Wallid Ismail held his mixed martial arts and kickboxing ‘Jungle Fight’ deep within the Amazon Jungle. Today the charismatic ex-fighter (AKA ‘The Gracie Killer’) can call JUNGLE FIGHT Latin America’s biggest fight show! This documentary captures fifteen intense contests in Brazil at ‘Jungle Fight’ venues, including the first ever held in Rio’s notorious ‘City of God’, fights that represent the best in MMA. The film also traces Wallid’s origins in Amazonas, Northern Brazil, looks at his fighting career and profiles his current role as MMA promoter as he moves between the different worlds of Brazil and Hollywood.

      ‘Enter The Jungle’ features the raw new Brazilian fighters of today, some of whom are already ON their way to becoming the global MMA champions of tomorrow; fighters such as Fabricio Werdum, Sergio Moraes, Erick Silva, John Lineker, Illiarde Santos, Alexandre “Pulga” Pimentel and Ildemar Alcantara.
