Female / Woman / Girl / Mixed Fight, Wrestling, Martial Arts, MMA, & Boxing Films

by girlfightmovie | created - 02 Sep 2014 | updated - 2 weeks ago | Public

AKA: Girl Fight, Bitch Fight, Femmes Fatales

As a producer of my own short fighting film, http://www.girlfightmovie.com, I have become a resource for everything combat here on IMDB. This list covers any and all fight scenes with females from movies, TV, and animation that held a tournament of some kind, even if it were for just a few scenes (like Bitch Slap). It does not cover War films like Battle Royale & The Hunger Games or Quest/Assassin films like BloodRayne, Resident Evil, and La Femme Nikita.

Suggestions, additions, etc., please comment below.

Please see these lists for movies not related to female tournament fighters:

the best movie female mixed fight & dangerous and violent women, http://www.imdb.com/list/ls000156457/

Females Fighting, http://www.imdb.com/list/ls000006647/



Battle Royale Films: (Movies where opponents, mostly known, hunt down each like other prey) * The Hunger Games * Battle Royale and its sequel * The Tournament * Scott Pilgrim vs the World (a few females in fights, but never as a tournament)

* Girlfight (2011) (this is an anti-bully film, the fight is shown as a plot device)

Bloodrayne Resident Evil La Femme Nikita Mortal Kombat: The Journey Begins (There is no tournament in this film). Never Back Down (except for a quick montage girls do not actually fight in a tournament setting) Any adult film
