Garrett Holeve is a 26-year-old with Down syndrome. His cognitive ability is about half of what an average 26-year-old’s is, and he has the reading and math skills of an elementary-schooler.

He started pursuing MMA first with his father, a former boxer, and then with Rodrigo Ramos, a professional fighter in Florida, where Holeve lives. “You’ve got to be brain damaged to think I want my son punched in the face,” Garrett’s father, Mitch, explains in the documentary. But he doesn’t discourage his son’s passion, either.
