Announced by Variety in February 2024, the movie will see the two acclaimed actresses stepping into the Octagon, portraying fighters with contrasting backgrounds and motivations.

Directed by James M. Johnston, "Strawweight" will delve into the captivating journey of two women navigating the competitive realm of UFC.
