On 22nd June 2009, Never Surrender, available on DVD, will plunge audiences into the heart-stopping core of MMA with a turbulent tale of 'kill or be killed' as world champion Diego Carter discovers that the real fight begins outside of the octagon - and as the stakes rise higher than ever, do you fight for money, glory or for sheer blood lust?
