    • Synopsis
    • Mixed martial arts megastars Ronda Rousey and Jon “Bones” Jones are joined by a number of the sport’s biggest names in The Hurt Business. Director Vlad Yudin's (GENERATION IRON) cameras venture beyond the octagon and offer viewers the daily lives of Jones (UFC light-heavyweight champion) and Rousey (the first and current UFC women’s bantamweight champion). Such never-before-seen access grants a unique perspective on the various lifestyles and career trajectories that exist in the fight business.

      The film also features renowned MMA brawlers such as Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz, Georges St-Pierre, Kenny Florian, Urijah Faber, Ken Shamrock and Bas Rutten. Interviews with psychologists, neurologists, sociologists and government officials analyze the grim prevalence of brain trauma and the implications of MMA’s increased popularity.
