I love this documentary as it show my favorite fighter GSP, but I do have a problem with the condition it arrived in, I bought it new from Amazon, and the case came with a chunk missing out of it, some of the inside was messed up, and there were scratches over the case, luckily the DVD was intact. But I don't know what happened to the case.

Now here's a funny story- I'm not a fan of the UFC at all. I like a lot of the fighters within the company, but I'm not exactly a fan of mixed martial arts when it comes down to it. After I heard Georges St. Pierre on The Joe Rogan Experience, I became interested in the guy because of how nice and humble he was. Up until then, I'd only read about him now and then, with many people praising him for being one of the best in the business and a definite future hall of famer, and I didn't know anything about his attitude. Georges really impressed me, and was a great change from the usual in-your-face screaming you see from a lot of younger MMA guys. When I found out there was a kind of documentary that featured him, I thought it'd be a good chance to learn more about him and see his exact training routine(s). Unfortunately, The Striking Truth ended up being nothing but a lot of short training footage, pre and post-fight footage and some good stuff with him and David Loiseau talking about their lives and how they got to where they are now. There was also something very weird about how it was put together that I'll get into later.

The Striking Truth covers a lot of ground regarding GSP and David's careers. GSP started out as a karate student, then as he developed an interest in MMA, started to up his game more. We get to see some good footage of him as a young kid practicing katas in the dojo, and it's funny seeing him as such a scrawny teen. It was nice to find out that he and David have been longtime friends, with David being the one who got him to come to the gym where he trained to fight. There are some clips of George's early pre-UFC fights here, including one where he has a huge company name painted on his back as an advertisement.

This is good look at the early career of GSP and David Loiseau. For whatever reason they discuss and have interviews with the fighters, but you see very little of their UFC fights. It is still a very good look at how easy it is to be derailed from a promising career, the business side of the sport, and dealing with setbacks. lots of good training clips.

I enjoyed this documentary because it really allowed the fighters to tell their story, while providing the historical context of each of their careers along the way. In essence, they captured the fighters' journeys from where they started to reach where they are or were at the time this was made.

This approach was effective at telling the story and keeping my attention. Good video.

I have never spent much time reading or watching anything he has been involved with. So, the film was an entertaining way to learn more about him. How he came to know David Loiseau, and train with him. His relationship with his parents, and how he has taken care of them financially. How he dealt with the losses to Hughes and Serra. There was also some footage and pics of him training kyokushin karate growing up, and some of his earliest MMA fights.

David "The Crow" Loiseau is the other fighter, as you doubtless know. I was unaware of the extent of his relationship with GSP, so it was interesting to hear about that. I was never I fan of his, but it is hard not to like the guy after watching this.

I watched it free through Prime, so cannot complain about anything to do with the purchasing process.

It gives a nice journey into the lives of two amazing fighters and their triumphs and struggles as UFC fighters. It's not easy being a fighter in the UFC -- and that's the truth.
