Why I Fight: The Documentary.
I wanted to take a quick moment to let all of the fans of GrapplersPlanet know about a documentary I’ve been working on for over a year and a half now.
It’s a documentary entitled “Why I Fight“, and it’s following the lives of 3 young, professional MMA fighters (Evan DeLong, Brady Hovermale and James Porter) in an attempt to show them honestly, as the people they are in contrast to how most people presume fighters to be. Coach/Promoter Bill Kilgore said in the documentary “They’ve had all the same experiences as any other young 20 year old man, the only difference is some weekends they get in the cage and punch each other in the face…that’s it.”
This project has been a labor of love for me, traveling to as many of their fights as I could possibly make it to. But I’ve accomplished all I’m able to accomplish at this point. I’ve launched a Kickstarter to help finish this project out. The money is going primarily towards hiring a professional editor to really help put this story together the way that it deserves.
It’s a project that fight fans and non-fight fans alike will enjoy experiencing. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions using the contact page at www.whyifightmovie.com
