The mixed martial arts movie titled Never Submit which is said to be under production and includes MMA celebrities including Randy Couture, Andrei Arlovski, and Nate Quarry, appears to have run into legal problems, according to a message from James Hergott’s publicist. Hergott is the president of Hergott Productions, Inc./Muffin Club Entertainment Inc., and was an independent contractor to Imperia Entertainment, the company producing Never Submit. Hergott has filed claim in federal court asking for an immediate stoppage of work on the project until monies owed to Hergott have been paid.
The suit bears some similarity in the one brought by Ed Fishman against PrideFC, where Fishman is suing for funds that he claims are contractually owed him for his work as a consultant to PrideFC.
The FightWorks Podcast has attempted to contact Never Submit representatives and will keep you updated.
