Despite recently retiring from the sport following two losses to Quinton Jackson and Alexander Gustafsson, the story of Matt “The Hammer” Hammill is an intriguing one. Born deaf, he would become a world-class amateur wrestler with a silver medal in Greco-Roman wrestling and a gold medal in freestyle wrestling from the 2001 Summer Deaflympics.
Becoming famous after a stint on the third season of The Ultimate Fighter, Hamill became a long-time UFC mainstay and now a film, based on his life, has a trailer that’s just been released.
