I was interested in Occupation Fighter after I saw the trailer, but I had no clue how much it would alter my view of MMA. Of course you assume being an MMA fighter must be absurdly hard, but the extent to which their discipline and hardship goes is nearly unimaginable.
Not even just in the cage, but long before the actual fight takes place these fighters are challenging themselves physically, mentally and emotionally to an insane level! After seeing Occupation: Fighter my respect for MMA fighters has grown thoroughly and my view of the entire sport has changed a lot! These are some truly amazing individuals and if you have even the slightest interest in the UFC, WEC, Strikeforce or just MMA in general this documentary will be quite enjoyable!Occupation: Fighter

This is a fantastic film about the pain and pride and dedication it takes to live the life of an MMA fighter. It is masterfully shot and edited to create a beautiful and yet painful story. I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone as it is a film any person can relate to. You don't have to be an MMA fan to appreciate the struggles and achievements Chad George experiences throughout the film. Watch it and you won't be disappointed.

This movie is amazing! Before watching this film, I had no idea what the life of an MMA fighter was like. After watching the film, I felt so inspired to make a difference in my own life. Although, I am not a fighter, the principles that are brought up, such as effort and dedication, really inspired me to make a difference in my life. Everyone should watch this film!

i have to say this documentary is the real deal!. Well put together, no lies, no scripts watch as it all unfolds, the start, the grueling training, the dieting, weight cuts, family, friends emotions, fights, this has it all. Kept me very interested and loved watching the MMA training scenes and MMA stars that come thru the gym on a daily basis. Chad George takes you thru the journey of an MMA fighter's epic climb to the top. Amazing documentary!

This is a well done documentary that takes you behind the scenes and into the personal space of a young mixed martial artist. It's kind of an emotional journey and is a fairly true representation of what fight life is like. There are no frills, and it's not glossed over.

Film is well made and goes into the life of Chad George. You don't need to know anything about MMA before watching this film, as it delves into the personality and lifestyle that comes with such an intensive sport. A great way for the viewer to come to appreciate the art and rigor behind MMA training and competition.

There's no substitute for a good behind-the-scenes documentary. "Occupation:Fighter" isn't simply a behind-the-scenes look at MMA, but also a mini-exposition on what the lives of the fighters we see on TV or an arena might be like. MMA, and in this case UFC, are still evolving on the world stage, and has only been legal and above board in the USA for a few very short years. I gained striking insight from just a few moments of dialogue of just how new--and yet undeveloped--the sport is.

If you are looking for a cavalcade of UFC notables and a variety of talking head interviews, this is not it. If you are looking for a focus on one fighter, and through them an introduction to how the sport of MMA (via UFC) works in their personal lives and in the public sphere, you can start here.

This really gives some true insight into the life of a professional fighter, through the good times and the bad. Chad is an inspiration to aspiring fighters like myself.
