Fighters Favourites: Christmas Movie

For a lot of families, there are certain traditions they carry out each holiday season. One of those traditions may be watching their favourite Christmas movie. But whether it’s part of tradition, or just simply one of their favourite movies to watch this time of year, everybody has a favourite Christmas movie!

Here are the favourite Christmas movies of 10 MMA fighters from Alberta and B.C.:

Sean Michael: Home Alone

“It’s one of those movies that’s funny throughout. All the stuff he puts the burglars through is epic. You can watch the movie whenever and with whoever, even by yourself, and it’s still good.”

Taylor Bull: The Nightmare Before Christmas

“Bad Santa is always a favourite for myself, but I think everybody should get warmed up with post-Halloween with The Nightmare before Christmas. It’s creative and animated. I’m a huge cartoon buff, so claymation is just as cool to me.”

Cleveland Bentley: Elf

“I like just how ridiculous of a person Will Ferrell is. That movie is gold.”

Sheldon Doll: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

“Cousin Eddie is a champ.”

Cole Campbell: How The Grinch Stole Christmas

“It’s my favourite because Jim Carrey was my favourite actor as a kid. Not to mention, it’s a classic.”

Sam Franchi: Elf

“I just like it because it’s hilarious.”

Jesse Arnett: Elf

“Simply, Will Ferrell is funny.”

Maged Hammo: Home Alone

“It reminds me of myself when I was Kevin McCallister’s age in the movie. I would be alone roaming the city. It’s just a funny movie in general.”

Gagan Gill: Home Alone

“I could watch this movie every Christmas and never get sick of it.”

Jamey-Lyn Horth Wessels: Elf

“I just love Will Ferrell, plus Step Brothers is hands down my favourite.”
