Jon Fitch and the 'Such Great Heights' trailer
Rewind your MMA brains about four years to a time when Jon Fitch had a title shot against UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. That would be UFC 87 on Aug. 9, 2008, and GSP won by -- surprise -- a unanimous decision.
This documentary, "Such Great Heights," tells the story of Fitch's training for that title shot. It also gives you an inside look at American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) in San Jose, Calif., and exposes you to various fighters at different stages of their careers, including a young Cain Velasquez.
The trailer is embedded above, and the full-length documentary comes out via On-Demand and iTunes nationwide on June 12.
