Wednesday, a new MMA movie arrived on the scene in the form of “Bruised.”

Directed by and starring Oscar winner Halle Berry, “Bruised” is the story of former UFC fighter Jackie Justice, who had a breakdown during a fight and left the MMA world behind. With life seeming to get the better of her, Jackie finds herself in position to take a big fight – against the “Lady Killer” played by UFC champion Valentina Shevchenko – and turn things around.

We’ve rolled this list out before, but with a high-profile film like “Bruised” now available on Netflix, it seems like as good a time as any to offer it up again.

Let’s take a look, then, at the best (but mostly worst) MMA movies around.

(And if we left some off the list, don’t be offended. For the record, if a movie was purely karate or kickboxing or boxing, etc., we left it off – we’re looking for reasonably modern-era mixed martial arts cagefighting kind of stuff to make the cut for this list. Sorry, old Bruce Lee and Jean Claude Van Damme flicks. We’ll save you for a different list.)
