The mega powers of combat sports go head to head in the new MMA action film, Cagefighter, starring AEW World Heavyweight Champion, Jon Moxley (Condemned 3).
Cagefighter is a testosterone fueled fist to face action packed movie about a fighter named Reiss, played by Alex Montagnani, London based real life professional MMA fighter. Reiss is at the top of his game in the MMA world with five titles under his belt. Then crafty promoter Max Black (Gina Gershon) decides to spice things up and pit him against wrestler Randy Stone, played by actual wrestling champion Jon Moxley. Reiss underestimates the trash-talking wrestler and now he faces the ultimate challenge while fighting for his life.
Besides all the blood and bruises Cagefighter delivers a strong message of hope and shows that hard work and determination pays off. The film packs a serious punch as well as a few kicks! One could never guess this is Alex Montagnani’s first lead role; it seems acting comes natural to him. The movie stars some of the best entertainers in professional sports, like UFC legend Chuck Liddell, former UFC champion Luke Rockhold, and WWE’s Christian Cage (Jay Reso). The film’s antagonist, Jon Moxley (real name Jonathan Good), recently ranked #1 in Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s Top 500 Wrestlers of 2020.
