Once again, I’m on a personal quest to find any and all action flicks to watch while we are at home these days and today, I have the brand new teaser trailer for a MMA fight flick titled Cagefighter: Worlds Collide which is set to hold a special live streaming event premiere this May. Check out the bone smashing goods below!
The film features a great and hard hitting cast which includes MMA and UFC hall of famer Chuck Liddell as well as Jason Reso who is also known as WWE superstar and two-time world champion Christian. AEW resident bad ass John Moxley also stars along with MMA pro Alex Montagnani, Strikeforce champ Luke Rockhold and veteran actress Gina Gershon.
Official Synopsis: In Cagefighter: Worlds Collide, Reiss Gibbons (actor and BAMMA MMA fighter Alex Montagnani) is on the cusp of cementing himself as the greatest to ever step inside the LEGENDS cage. With five title defenses under his belt, a beautiful wife (Georgia Bradner), endless deals from his agent (Elijah Baker), and the support of his coach and mentor (UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell), Reiss has it all.
But when a savvy promoter (Gina Gershon) pits him against pro wrestling superstar, Randy Stone (AEW Champion, Jon Moxley) in the company’s first ever cross-promotional event, Reiss finds himself in the toughest fight of his life. Adding to the drama are a charismatic MMA podcaster ( WWE’s Jay “Christian” Reso) and a flashy MMA coach (former UFCchamp Luke Rockhold).
Cagefighter is special because it will have its world premiere on May 16th as a special live PPV streaming event outside of the North American territory that will be held on FITE.TV. The film will be available starting at 7:00 PM EDT.
Helmed by Jesse Quinones who also penned the script, the rest of the cast includes Brenna Coates, Georgia Bradner, Elijah Baker, Lowell Dean, Rigan Machado, Kwame Augustine, Andrew Valdez, Rupert Charmak, Jodie Riley, Ryland Alexander, Jordan Fiacco, Natalya Tsvetkova, Du’aine A. Samuels, Rob Hornsberger, Nathan Montgomery, Brad Pickett, Robb Rennebohm, Charles Scowsill, Logan Mainil, Devon Oman, Genevieve Fothergill, Adam Schaffer, and Mark Claxton. Quinones has directed two documentaries on the cagefighting subject as well as the film Calloused Hands so he knows a thing or two on the subject.
The trailer is rich with training footage and it is certainly an intersting and intriguing premise to have MMA and wrestling collide in a movie. With the level of talent involved the fight sequences should offer up authenticity for fight fans who tune in for the one night PPV event.
