Don't know where it has been available so far but Junkie says Showtime will be showing it soon and that it's based around Dustin Poirier. Doubt it's up for download yet but as soon as someone sees it let me know :thumb:

The MMAJunkie article:




Showtime Networks Inc. has acquired the documentary "FIGHTVILLE," officials today announced.



The MMA-themed film focuses on regional MMA, specifically Gil Guillory's USA-MMA organization, and current UFC fighter Dustin Poirier's quick rise in the ranks before his call to the big show.



The film has earned rave reviews for personalizing MMA and addressing many of the sports' many preconceptions.



"FIGHTVILLE," which is directed by Michael Tucker and Petra Epperlein, also features trainer/UFC vet Tim Credeur. The film has been a hit on the film-festival circuit (including the Hot Docs film festival in Toronto this past weekend) and earned positive reviews both from MMA and mainstream outlets.



No broadcast times have been announced for the Showtime airings.



"We are thrilled to have Showtime as our partner for 'FIGHTVILLE,'" says Epperlein stated. "Mixed martial arts is the fastest growing sport in the world, and Showtime is a major force in combat sports and truly represents the best in original programming."



Showtime, of course, also is home to Strikeforce and the former broadcast partner for EliteXC.



A DVD release of the film also is expected this year.
