Plot & Details

A former NCAA wrestling champion becomes a successful MMA fighter after being sent to prison for killing a cop, and battles a corrupt system after realizing he's been set up to take a big fall. Dillon McCabe (Wes Chatham) was a natural-born fighter. But the very same night Dillon won the NCAA wrestling title, he got mixed up in an incident that resulted in the death of a police officer. Subsequently released from prison after 10 years, Dillon returns to his Baton Rouge mean-street roots and learns that one of his oldest friends has crossed a ruthless loan shark. In no time, the ex-con is rising through the ranks of the local fighting circuit on a mission to raise the money that will save his friend. But upon learning that the entire system has been rigged against him, Dillon realizes that his biggest fight is yet to come.
