UFC's Dustin Poirier and the 'Fightville' trailer

UFC featherweight Dustin Poirier (12-1) is a winner of five straight fights. He faces his toughest test May 15 at UFC on Fuel against the "Korean Zombie" Chan Sung Jung.

But before that, we'll learn what type of box office draw Poirier has. (Truthfully, not that much since it's a documentary and is in limited release in New York and Los Angeles on April 20 along with same-day VOD and digital download.)

Still, "Fightville" should intrigue MMA fans. Here's a snipper of the promotional copy says about the documentary from Petra Epperlein and Tucker:

"But far from Las Vegas, in sweat-soaked gyms and low-rent arenas across America, the big lights are but a dream. Here, men fight to test their mettle, fortified with the mythic promise that an ordinary man can transform into a champion."

Watch the "Fightville" trailer embedded above to get a sense of the Southern Louisiana gym scene. Search for "Fightville" movie times here.
