An attempt to purchase beer becomes a nightmare for underage friends Chase, Jake and Dillon when Chase ends up dead, Jake gets shot in the back, and Dillon - a championship wrestler - goes to prison for manslaughter. Released after ten years, Dillon's greeted by Jake, who lines him up with a job and introduces him to the world of minor league MMA fighting. Due to Jake's outstanding gambling debt, Dillon agrees to three fights to cover it and literally save Jake's life but finds himself caught between gangsters, dirty cops, a shady promoter, a snide parole officer and Jake's disapproving sister.

Among his many injuries, Jake gets shot in the mouth, putting a hole through his cheek. Though sutured up and leaving only a small scratch (remarkable in itself), the blast alone would have burned his mouth, yet the injury fails to impede Jake's diction in any degree. See more
I train the best, and the best all have that animal that I saw in you last night, but that's not enough. See, right now you can go on the ground with anyone. You just can't get 'em there. You're gonna learn how to stand up and fight, become a complete fighter. Yeah, that's what separates the street rats from the best. You're gonna want it, or eventually... you won't walk out.
