Fight Me: Dwayne Johnson To Portray UFC Champ Mark Kerr in Upcoming Biopic

Over the last few years, Dwayne Johnson has run the gamut of starring roles. Mostly, he's been making a name for himself in the explosive action genre but has also done quite his fair share of family type adventure films and has also found a niche with his own brand of side eyed comedy. Now, the actor and former pro wrestler is looking to expand his resume as he's taking on a new biopic that will track the rise of MMA and UFC Champion Mark Kerr. At a recent event, The Rock had this to say about the upcoming project and how he feels about taking on the role which will be quite the change for him. 

Mark Kerr’s story is such an incredible storyLike all of us, and like a lot of these fighters, he battled these demons — these demons of addiction, these demons of mental health, these demons of getting out and the pressure of fighting in front of 50,000 people and what that does to somebody. Here’s a guy who has gone through it all, hit rock bottom, but the best part about Mark Kerr is that, like all of us in this room and all these fighters, these warriors, is that everyday, we get up and we want to do a little bit better tomorrow than we did today.
