NEW YORK, March 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Church First Films, Deep C Digital, and Stonecutter Media LTD. announced today that the riveting new MMA film VICTORY BY SUBMISSION will be releasing on demand nationwide on cable, satellite, and telco providers April 6, 2021. Featuring former Strikeforce lightweight champion and UFC and Bellator fighter Josh Thomson and former Strikeforce fighter Casey Olson, the film chronicles the trials and tribulations of up-and-coming MMA fighter Tommy Hendricks as he struggles in his commitments to his career, his family, and his calling.
Written and directed by Alan Autry (IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT), the film stars Brett Prieto, Rachel Hendrix, Alan Autry, Lee Majors, Eric Roberts, and Fred Williamson. All filming was shot on location in Fresno, CA. The film is executive produced by Alan Autry of Autry Media Partners.
“Everyone knows about the UFC and Bellator, the big leagues of MMA,” said Autry of the film. “This is about the long, arduous, difficult, and sometimes destructive path to achieve the ultimate honor in the sport – a fight on television and on the national stage. It’s about the hours spent fighting and training in local gyms and arenas, striving to be the best fighter you can be. It’s about the struggle that no one sees.”
