The UFC is taking one last week off before getting into the swing of their 2022 schedule, so the MMA Depressed us is taking the opportunity to dive back into one of their favorite holiday traditions. That’s right, we’re watching yet another Randy Couture film. Promising the badass thrills of Michael Jai White as 'Payne', alongside the wall-n-maul prowess of one of the UFC’s most legendary champs, Randy Couture as 'Toro', who could say no to the March 5, 2019 action blockbuster ‘The Hard Way’— co-starring former Brit pop-rocker, from the band Bros (pronounced ‘bross’), Luke Ross? playing 'Mason'. Along with the lovely Madalina Anea playing 'Lacy Love'... We certainly couldn’t. For all interested in watching along with us, ‘The Hard Way’ is available on a number of platforms, including Netflix. But more importantly, there’s also a copy hanging out free on YouTube. As always, we’re starting at the beginning of the video. So, anyone following along just needs to hit play when Zane says “go”. A brief synopsis of the film states: "After learning his brother died on a mission in Romania, a former soldier teams up with two allies to hunt down a mysterious enemy and exact revenge." Directed by: Keoni Waxman, Written by: Thomas J. Churchill & Keoni Waxman. Filmed in: Bucharest, Romania. Produced by: Actionhouse Pictures - Hollywood Media Bridge. The film had an estimated $3.5 Million budget. Run time: 1 hour, 34 minutes. Not to be confused with the other 'The Hard Way' film starring Michael J. Fox & James Woods released during that same year.
