Most travelers to new places usually aren’t looking for a fight. Frank Grillo definitely is.
“Fightworld,” a new Netflix docu-series, follows Grillo, an actor and self-described “fight enthusiast,” as he goes globe-trotting to explore fighting styles and the cultures behind them.
Says Grillo: “It’s very similar to what Anthony Bourdain did, but instead of food, it was fighters.”
Grillo travels to places such as Mexico, Thailand and Senegal, locations chosen based on his familiarity with those country’s various fighting disciplines such as Muay Thai, wrestling and boxing.
He explains: “I know these things well, so I could go there and immediately embed myself.”
