'WINNING, LOSING, HARDSHIP...IT HAS EVERYTHING...IT WILL OPEN MANY EYES IN A POSITIVE WAY.'
- BAS RUTTEN, UFC HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION
CAGED - PREMIERE SCREENING JULY 6 ON SBS TELEVISION
Caged follows a year in the lives of three cage fighters and a coach in Sydney’s Western suburbs and regional NSW. Some carry the hopes of their communities and families on their shoulders; others might have followed a life of crime if not for the discipline of the contest – but all of them are passionate about battling the media’s portrayal of cage-fighting as an ultra-violent free-for-all.
