Hello lordfauntleroy-ga,

I?m pretty sure that you are referring to the HBO documentary ?The
Smashing Machine: The Life and Times of Mark Kerr?.  It is available
for purchase on DVD.

HBO Documentaries 
The Smashing Machine
?Mark "the smashing machine" Kerr is a modern-day gladiator, a
wrestler who has no limits, no restrictions. But the scars on his body
are nothing compared to those he carries inside, as Mark must
sacrifice his relationships, his health -- and nearly his life -- to
stay on top.?

Smashing Machine Part 1
?The Smashing Machine was a documentary first aired in the US by major
TV channel HBO. It focuses primarily on prolific mixed martial arts
fighter Mark Kerr, and also features former UFC and Pride Champion
Mark Coleman.

The film is unnerving; a bleak journey through the life of one of the
top names in the sport and portrays the anxiety, fear and drug
addiction that came so close to consuming Kerr's life.?

SFUK Reviews
Smashing Machine Part 2
?The on-off relationship between Dawn and Kerr is now back on,
although Bas is blunt in making his opinion known that she is a
hindrance to his training and will affect his performance. Kerr
explains that he needs the emotional support after a fight, but within
months cracks are once again starting to appear. Domestic problems
surface and major problems ensue only weeks from his next fight in
Japan (the second round of the Pride GP). Whether these are factors in
Kerr's loss is uncertain, but it solves one problem in that it
eliminates Kerr from the tournament, and any chance of meeting old
friend and one time training partner Mark Coleman.

Even as he walks back to his dressing room in defeat, the emotional
Kerr is supportive of Coleman and encourages him to go on and win.
Coleman is victorious, taking $200,000 in the process.?
