After much anticipation surrounding the film’s official release, this week marks the premiere of “The Striking Truth” documentary featuring an inside look at the lives and contrasting career paths of Canadian Mixed Martial Arts fighters Georges St-Pierre and David “The Crow” Loiseau. The film focuses on the careers of both fighters over the past four years, dating back to UFC 58: USA vs. Canada where Loiseau challenged Rich Franklin for the UFC Middleweight title and GSP battled against BJ Penn in the co-main event.
Featuring a contrasting look at St-Pierre’s rise to the top of the UFC Welterweight division, in comparison to Loiseau’s personal challenges in the fight industry, “The Striking Truth” red carpet premiere rolls into Las Vegas on December 2nd, 2010, just a week before GSP’s title defense at UFC 124 in his hometown of Montreal, Quebec, Canada against Josh Koscheck.
The project is directed and produced by Steven J. Wong, executive produced and written by James Hergott, and action directed by Bobby Razak. Check out the trailer below.
