Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Never Surrender: ‘Just a Wall to Wall Adrenaline Rush’


Holy crap, you guys. Here’s the first trailer for Never Surrender, which stars Georges St. Pierre, Anderson Silva, BJ Penn, Heath Herring, and Quinton Jackson. Judging from the preview, the movie seems to be about UFC stars kicking people. But according to the plot summary on IMDb, there’s more to it than that:

Never Surrender is an erotically charged [Ed. note: seriously?], controversial action-thriller set in the world of underground street fighting where an MMA fighter who has been drawn into the world by an erotic [Ed. note: there's that word again!] and sexy promoter, quickly realizes that there is no way out, other than death.

Erotic and sexy, huh? Might this mysterious promoter be based on Gary Shaw, perhaps? Never Surrender is written and directed by Hector Echavarria, and will hit theaters in the Spring. Someday a smart filmmaker will make a good movie about above-ground street fighting, but for now this will have to do.

After the jump: A new promo for WEC 37, where Frank Mir talks about what a beast Miguel Torres is. The clip they show at 0:39-0:42 is just one of the reasons that Torres’s most recent fight against Yoshiro Maeda was immediately hailed as a fight-of-the-year candidate.

Ong Bak does have better fight scenes, cause it's a great muay thai movie. The protector is the shit as well.

Ong Bak probably has better fight scenes. and the song was terrible. sounds like a WWE entrance song.

the idea of seeing mma stars in one movie is exciting, but this one just might suck worse than van damme's street fighter

I am not impressed by your acting Yea Gene Siskel i hear that GSP is reminicsend of JCVD a lot by people who arent huge MMA fans.

The song playing during the trailer wasn’t too bad, but the movie itself looks like it’s gonna suck harder than Tito Ortiz’s wife!"

You fucking son of a fucking bitch. THE MUSIC WAS BAD. BAD.

Still laughing at Jim Smith's Cabbage Patch Doll slam.... it's oh so true. I said that the first time I saw him. Him and George Foreman both look like live Cabbage Patch Kids! And GSP reminds me of Jean-Claude Van Damme. I bet his acting is probably worse, though. But I digress...

This movie is 110% guaranteed to be pure suckage from start to finish. I've never seen a movie trailer as lame as this. In fact I think it will be straight-to-video. I highly doubt it will make it to theaters.

Wow looks like Anderson Silva, Gsp and rampage are all gonna be in an other movie called death warrior, where "Five of the best mixed martial arts champions from around the world are forced to play a deadly game, a game to the death." Sounds even worst. I thought at first this was a joke actually, I still want them to be jokes.... common wtf is going threw these guys head...
gvd- November 19, 2008 at 4:24 am
Oh my fucking god that video is hilarious. Between the bad music, shitty fake fighting and Silva's "badass" face I couldn't stop laughing. ps. how does Herring come into this picture..? Too bad they couldn't get Fedor. He could watch everyone fight with a sleepy expression on his face, step into the ring and bitch slap someone to death. FOR THAT i would watch this movie.
UFC fan- November 19, 2008 at 3:28 am
wow, couldn't even get thru the whole promo, that sucks huge, and the music is annoying.
I want no part of that garbage.
"never surrender" coming soon to a trash heap near you.

From one of my favorite movies, A Bronx Tale, There is nothing sadder in life than wasted talent... this movie is a huge waste of talent. That makes me sad.

Torres should be carrying the Bad Ass Mother Fucker wallet.

That is abosolutely horrible. Nothing makes me sick than seeing MMA fighters (whose real fighting in the cage I enjoy) get together and promote shitty hollywood acting. Sure, they're getting paid but that's just ridiculous, to ridicule one's own sport with the terrible fight sequences...I'm speechless. Never back down was so horrible I didn't bother to see it, and this looks even worse. Fucking shame.
neversurrenderisfuckinglame- November 19, 2008 at 1:43 am
this is the worst fucking piece of steaming shit i've ever seen. those fighters' agents should be shot for letting them participate in this cockgobbling of a movie. might as well be 1985 and fucking jean claude van douche starring in it...puts mma back 20 years.
Bill C.- November 19, 2008 at 1:29 am
What's with all the kicking in the trailer? If someone had never seen MMA before watching this trailer, they would think that fighters do nothing in the cage other than roundhouse kicks.
CB- November 18, 2008 at 11:18 pm
Are we sure this isn't just a music video for...whatever shitty band sings that shitty song?
jomamma- November 18, 2008 at 11:14 pm
that just looks sad.
yay for the payday.
Dru Down- November 18, 2008 at 10:32 pm
NealTaflinger said it all- BJ looked like he was embarrassed to be in this movie. Was this even real, or some sort of elaborate joke? I mean, Heath Herring's opponent was wearing slacks and a belt in the cage.

I hope they all got paid, cause its gonna take a big-time PR effort to recover from this disgrace.

Thumbs up on the chick banging herself in the tub, though. If you'll all excuse me, I'll be headed to Youporn.

That's what MMA needs. More Moonsaults.

poo5y- November 18, 2008 at 9:25 pm
well theres time terribly spent, couple things I would like to point out... that girl in the pool seems to have nippleless breasts, and whats with rampage's "snarl" face? he clearly just smelled BJ's fart that was forced out by one of those twirling kicks.
mmmiles- November 18, 2008 at 9:18 pm
Please don't do this. I don't want to become embarrassed about MMA.

K.E.G.- November 18, 2008 at 9:05 pm
I heard the three way sex scene between Penn, Silva, and St. Pierre was shot beautifuly but the one with Rampage and Herring was just fucked up to see. Either way this movie looks erotic.
1glove- November 18, 2008 at 8:58 pm
What I like about MMA is that it is REAL. I hate fake wrestling and I hate bad action movies. Why do I want to watch the best fighters in the world pretend to fight? These guys can fight, but they all suck at acting.

Lmao! @Boner I ca't believe that wasn't said sooner.

As for the film... I see an Oscar coming Penn's way.
