The movie features several competitors – including big names like Ronda Rousey, George St. Pierre and Jon Jones – as they attempt to deal with the highs and lows of the industry and touches on subjects such as depression and brain damage, seeking to answer the question of whether or not it’s worth destroying your mind and body for sport. It also covers the history and development of the sport and is narrated by none other than Kevin Costner:
