Why do humans love watching each other fight? 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 cameras venture beyond the octagon and offer viewers the daily lives of Jones (UFC light-heavyweight champion), Rousey (the first and recent UFC women’s bantamweight champion) and Rashad “Suga” Evans (former UFC light-heavyweight 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, narrated by Kevin Costner, 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 also analyse the grim prevalence of brain trauma and the implications of MMA’s increased popularity. So given the enormous risks, why are so many people drawn to the ring?

“The Hurt Business” is the latest film from director Vlad Yudin, who has also explored the strange world of bodybuilding in two films: “CT Fletcher: My Magnificent Obsession” and “Generation Iron“.
