Poster for Mark Hunt: The Fight of His Life

The autobiographical rags-to-riches story of Mark Hunt, the New Zealand MMA fighter who overcame staggering odds to become a UFC champion. More

"Charting an almost Rocky-like trajectory, director Peter Brook Bell highlights Hunt’s career as it twists and turns in all directions. Focally, Hunt overcoming a horrendous childhood dealing with an abusive father, jail time and an adolescence spent on society's margins. No-one takes him seriously, bringing him in as a last-minute stand-in for kickboxing fights. Yet, despite this unpromising beginning, he almost immediately rises to global stardom. But with his increasing success also comes self-sabotage, challenging his own ascent at every step. By the time he joined the fledging MMA circuit, he was already washed up." (New Zealand International Film Festival 2021)
