List Rules Movies must feature mixed martial arts fighting

Over the past decade, MMA fights have risen from the underground into a legitimate sport, spawning countless pay-per-view events and a reality TV show. Two fighters in an octagon ring is considered by many to be the closest sport we have to a refined street brawl. The fighting movies on this list cover all genres, although most of them are action and dramas. As MMA becomes more entrenched in our sports culture, we can expect to see even more good MMA fight movies making their way into our theaters.

These are films that focus on the sport of mixed martial arts as a central theme. We've also included a few other fighting movies, because they're awesome. What are the best MMA movies? What's your favorite fight movie? If there are any MMA films you believe we missed, please feel free to add them to the list yourself.
