Sorry not to have come and visit.

I do not know, couldn't take myself back to those gates, you know?

Man, I can't believe it's you sitting in here.

How often did we dream about this while sitting in that cage, huh?

How's work? Nothing yet.

See what happens in these cages, and see what I'm talking about.

Ready for round two.

You ready?

You ready?

Fight!

Yes, they bring in 5000 dollars a week.

That's not counting the side action.

I have a system that breaks down each fighter's strengths and weaknesses. foolproof.

Thank you. I'll get you back.

Here. To the rise of the employ.

I know that guy. the black in the corner.

He a monster.

We were in high school together. He was a great wrestler.

He is.

He has a lot of respect around here.

Who was that? Who?

The big guy.

Ace Reed. He thinks he's Stringer Bell.

Who? Stringer Bell. From "The Wire."

He sells a lot of coke.

And the cops ? You've got to pay your taxes.

Hey, Rix, how do you feel ?

Always bet on Jim LA's horse.

He used to be a number one contender until he blew his leg.

Come on.

Hey, Larry! What's the deal?

Give me two out and one on Tim money

Come on! Come on!

Two hundred! This system right there! can't do, Jake. can't do.

You can't do what? I've not fucking greased up yet.

Ace's calling the chips, you have no more credit.

Oh, come on.

I should not even be paying you on this fight.

Sorry, Jake.

are you allright?

Yes Larry hasn't been the same since his wife left him ...

'cause he has a small pecker.

Truth hurts.

Your winner ...

Now with a record of 9 to 4 ...

Ray Smithies!

Justin, Justin!

Hey, tough break, man.

You know my boy, Dillon McGwire?

Sure. How you man doing, eh?

'm allright. you did well in there. just lost focus, man. just one second. you know how it is. just as wrestling. Except you get to punch the guy.

Well, it was a hell of a fight, man. -.

I warned you about the reverse, didn't I ? I thought ...

No, no, no. You don't think, you do.

You do what I say, then you win.

When you do what you think, you fuckin' lose.

Look what happened.

You had it in position, right? What did I say?

I said : "stay close, elbow !". didn't I ?

What did you do? You sat straight up and got reverse.

And threw away a lot of money here.

It cost me big.

Your cut.. Your cage fee's mine. You have a nice day.

Hey! We gonna work on that nose or what?

Come on, let's get out of here.

Good to see you, man.

Hang in there, Justin.

Wait, wait. Where are you going?

Curfew.

Oh, man. I know that was tough to watch, but ...

But, you know, Justin has a point.

You'd be a monster in that cage. didn't look much like wrestling to me...

You were All American, you were national champion. I mean ... we'd make a lot of scratch if you'd be fighting.

We? I saw scouts in there.

USMMA, Crush, UFC.

We could run for it. I could be your manager. I Could help you train.

It's not for me, man.

Ah, come on, man, it's just... it's wrestling mixed with a little bit of punching

You are the best wrestler in the world.

I gotta get going. it's cool, man. Stay and watch the fights.

Allright, see you in the morning?

I'll give you a lift to work.

Thanks, but I think ... Hey, hey, it's legit.

I'm just gonna take you down there.

Text me when you're ready.

Text ?

Forget it, Rip Van Winkle. A lot has changed since you've been inside.

Why just not be ready for 08h00 ?

Allright.

Hey.

Welcome back, kid.


Police! On the floor! What?

I said now!

You holding ha? ? No!

How are you doing, partner?

Remember me? I bet you do.

There it is.

Oh sorry ! That is Detective Spencer.

We thought we'd just come by and say welcome back.

Welcome, douche bag.

You know, I think it's great you and Jakey are still together after all these years.

You two are regular Bonnie and Clyde.

Tell me something ... those three extra years you had ... was it hard to be away from your boyfriend all that time?

I bet it was.

But that's what you get when you breaks a guy's neck.

I owe you

And if it swells too much, get it looked at.

Thanks. Thanks, Doc.

Was I right? Huh? was I right?

Tell me ...

Why'd you bite your tongue?

Football coaches down South ... teach your players to bite alngua before blocking punds.

The blood drives them crazy on adrenalin ... but also scares the shit out of the other team.

But I've got a pretty good feeling you knew that already.

Bring him by my place tomorrow.

What did I tell you?

One fight.

One fight and LA Jim wants to talk to you.

That's what I'm talking about, baby. That's what I'm talking about.

No laying, huh?

You're a mean son of a bitch.

I like it though.

I like that a lot.

Jake.

Get him another fight.

Quick.

Keep your head up straight.

Just two more and we're through. We clear ?

I said, are we clear ?

Wild man.

Take care of my horse, Jake.

See you soon.

Pope polish?

Trust me. This guy's the real deal.

Here. That's for your win last night.

Big time.

Hey, guys. Thanks for coming down.

No problem.

Why don't you and I take a walk ?

Murray has some papers for you to sign. Hey. saw you came from Drexel.

You are good.

Last night you were something ... different.

How long a strech did you do ? Ten years.

You know what I do ?

Train fighters. No.

I Train the best.

And the best all have that animal I saw in you last night.

But that's not enough.

See, right now you can get on the ground with anyone. you just can't get him there.

You've gotta learn how to stand up and fight.

Become a complete fighter.

'cos that's what separates the street rats from the best.

You gotta want it.

Or eventually ...

You won't walk out

Remember when everyone used to know his name?

"Dillon, you the man!"

You train with me and I'll get you back there.

What's in it for you ? Twenty percent.

You fight who I say when I say.

I don't think I'm in the fighter you are looking for.

Well, I don't know if you are either.

But after what I saw last night, and from what I know ...

I think you owe to yourself to find out.

When do we start ?

You've got a girl? No.

Go get one tonight.

'cause tomorrow, your legs are mine.

Girls are like kryptonite to legs.

7am tomorrow morning.

Make sure you eat something before.

What did he say?

Eat breakfast. What else?

And to get laid.

That's what I'm talking about!

Here. What's that?

You now belong LA Jim Inc. Management

Hey huh, how's the fishing?

Relax. it's just a job check.

A little like a prostate check, but without the lube.

I brought coffee.

What happened to your knuckles?

Loading boxes?

Yes. you've loaded boxes with your face, too?

So, do you need to talk to my boss or something?

No.

Just checking a box here.

How are you doing? Here?

Here, there, everywhere. How's the world?

It's fine.

It's different.

Did four in Iraq.

Came home, felt like I'd been to Mars and back.

Give it time.

Find something that matters. Hold on tight.

Look what it did for me, right?

Allright.

Back to work.

Next time? Yes

Watch out for them boxes.

Hi Sorry, sorry. I didn't want to surprise you. it's all right, i've got it. No, let me help you.

Gotta stop entering in the back like a criminal.

Shit, sorry.

Your uncle isn't here.

No, actually ...

I never got to say ...

Thank you.

I heard you won. Yes

I'm sorry that he did this to you. it's allright.

No it's not.

I'll just do it for him.

Hey, at least I wasn't asked to win a beauty pageant.

So, is it true what my brother told me?

You never lost? Yeah.

You must be pretty good.

You should come and watch.

I don't really like fighting.

Well, I gotta go. I have to catch the bus.

Good luck. Thank you.

How about Italian food? What ?

Do you like Italian food? Yes Because I'm about to close up here and there's this really great place up on Eliyson.

That place hasn't been up there for like, five years.

But there's this great place on Broad.


Hey, man, It's me. You're missing your party.

I know you're not working right now, because I know you're closed.

So, er, get your ass down here.

It is a celebration.

Look at this nut.

No work, no technique. The guy's an amateur.

What a hack.

They got this guy, Powell, fighting sticks so that they can build ...

A money horse. Hey! Turn that shit off!

It's the guy who stays on his feet who wins.

It's the guy can still punch while the other can't breathe.

Oh, I'm sorry,can I get you a lemonade or something?

Hit that fucking thing!

A hundred times! Let's go!

What do winners never do? Quit !

Hit it!

Now!

Aim for the head!

Now!


Get some rest.

That's good.

Now! this is it.

Now!

Ok, again!

Ace's gotta approve it.

Fuck Ace, ok?

I'm not playing on credit.

Take this.

That's two thousand dollars on my boy tomorrow.

You hold onto it. I win, you pay me what you owe me.

Ace doesn't need to know.

Leave it off the books.

Larry, you need these ears.

I know these fighters. I know what your odds should be. Come on.

You help me, I help you.

What's that? Oh My God.

What ?

O-M-G, that's what it means.

OMG, I just sent my first text.

You really want to give me an excuse?

What are you doing?

Hey, easy playboy. We didn't do anything !

While I'm here, I want to give congratulations on your big win. that's all.

I hear you're with LA Jim now. That's terrific.

Just want to make sure you don't get the big head.

You still a piece of shit.

Fuck it! Easy, killer.

What does that mean?

It means you should get ready To pay up.

Bring the pain, man.

It is the way he becomes a contender, you know that.

In two weeks, he goes down.

But in one month, he gets his shot.

CONDITIONAL OFFICE

Can I see the Phillips wrench ?

I already tried the connection.

Okay, try it now.

Try it now?

I was a Marine, you know?

I'm trying now.

I wiped the sand from the intake valve ...

Thanks. What's going on ?

This Allison Kaufman Crush MMA circuit.

Miss Kaufman, this is "the" LA Jim.

He turns pretenders into contenders.

Jim, I'm such a huge fan of yours.

I saw you fight Gracie Back in Newport Beach.

What can I do for you? I represent Crush.

We've been watching Dillon for a while... And we think ... he's gonna be a huge star.

They want him to fight "Titan" Powell.

We think it would be such a cool fight.

In one month in Baton Rouge.

Dillon's first fight where he bites his tongue has more than ... a million hits on YouTube.

No. What ?

Of course we provide a 50000 dollar contract for the fight.

He fights Titov. Then the next step ... and then the next, until it is ready.

Until he's ready? The guy is destroying guys right now.

He is not ready.

He fights who I say, when I say.

Jim.

Seventy thousand dollars?

I'm not gonna ask again. Good Go talk to him, please.

Just give me a minute. I'll sort this out and you'll be ...

... fighting Powell in a month.

I only have to fight one more time.

Yes, but D. .. I only owe one more fight.

And then what? you're going back to stacking boxes for Lenny? better than getting my face beated, yes.

Look, man, Ace and Jim are the only ones making money off your blood.

When are we going to make us some?

We have to turn the Philly Kid into a global scheme ...

The Philly Kid is dead!

He died in prison.

And "we"?

You mean you.

I took those fights to pay off your debt.

You understand that? you debt.

I fight once more time and that's where it ends.

One more fight.

Where did you get 8000 dollars? You the IRS?

Put it all on my boy to break Titov in half.

Where did it come from? Come on, man.

It's clean.

God, I love that sweeper move.

I didn't see this coming.

How does it look Doc? Like he's been drugged.

What ?

Probably Rohypnol or some type of tranquilizer.

Come on, no way !...

I've been stitching fighters for 30 years, I know when someone's micked.

Russian immigrants, they are ... they're dirty and everybody knows it.

Probably had some shit in his gloves.

It would take a shotgun to bring my animal down, right, D?

Three to one! All he does is win!

He's got a big fight.

I already stitched his eye, but you're gonna have to keep him awake ... at least for the next eight hours because of the risk of concussion.

Keep him awake? I can do that. I am a champ of it.

How did I do?

You did what you do.

That's why I chose to train you.

You did good, kid.

Hey! You're falling asleep ?

You're awake?

You know what we should've done ?

We should've invited that dirty Russian.

Tina ! Come here !

Hello, guys. Give me a hug.

This is the champ' right here. This is the champ'.

Hey. We need to keep him up four hours.

Ok Keep him up, come on!

D, get up and dance with her! Come here, champ'.

Another drink.


Wow, man.

What do you think are you doing?

Gimme the keys. Are you even awake ?

Stop messling around and give me the keys.

You can't even open your eyes. Yes, get in the car, drunko.

Come here !

You're really becoming to be a pain in my ass !

Two hundred thousand dollars ! That's what I'm due !

What are you talking about?

Shut up!

You were supposed to lose that fight!

But L.A. Jim, he dropped the ball.

So I had to eliminate him. 'Cause he was unreliable.

I can't have unreliable.

So now, I'm here to appeal directly to the source.

You boys owe me two hundred thousand dollars.

Wait. Wait, wait, wait. I've got 10 thousand.

You think I don't know everything?

You've got 24. Which is mine.

Which means you still owe me 176 000.

I owe you shit!

Come here.

Open your mouth.

Open it.

Think.

So we're clear ...

You're taking the Titan to fight ...

... and you're gonna lose.

In the second.

Say it.

Say it!

Yes! Yes, I'm gonna lose!

good to hear.

I am owed.


You'll be fine.

She'll be allright.

I'm gonna need some more hot water ... and towels.

Take it easy, kid.

Come here.

Take her with you.


I'm gonna make this right.


You're a fucking monster.

Let him out.

Guards!


If it wasn't for your brother ...

I would be dead.

Every week they came at me.

I became a monster.

Now that's that all I have left.

It's all that I can feel.

You're not a monster.

I can feel the good in you. Even if you can't.

And if I can' do this?

We can.

I check the county morgue, I find his name?

Yes.

What was it? Jim Jacoby.

Also known as L.A. Jim .

And the cops ? Marks.

Ray Marks?

You know, he called me in the morning.

He said he was investigating a murder.

Committed by a drug dealer named Ace Reed.

He asked me to keep an eye on you, see if you seemed jumpy.

Maybe like you would be leaving town.

I'm telling you the truth.

And if he frames Ace, it will be with this gun.

I need your help.

Shell casing on a cop is not gonna be enough.

I'll give more.

Let's say this is all true.

Why don't you run?

You know how many assholes jump their parole every month?

Maybe you run, maybe I'm too tired to find you.

-I can't leave. Why not?

I can't leave her.

I can't leave her.

I'm 3 to 1 in Biloxi.

If you put 300 000 on me ... 300 grand ?

You did your run already.

Besides, my money's safe away in the bank.

Why do I need another shot on a horse...

... that probably can't even win? For the same reason I do.

To get out.

Marks, he's gonna pin L.A. Jim on you.

Is that right ?

So how are we gonna skin this cat ?

300 000 on me to win ... and I want two of your guys ... and you must stay away from the fight.

You must win the fight.

You'll need more than a shell casing.

Yes, but tell me in the I.A doesn't have a phonebook these guys.


Can not hide forever.

I want these photos on the web site tonight ...

And get them to Allan in L.A. for the local TV press conference.


32, 33 ...

34, 35, 36, 37 ...

He is still circling...

Right there, see how he puts his head down when he shoots ?

Watch this, watch this.

Boom! Right there.

Ladies and gentlemen, our judge has called a stop to the action ... in 2 minutes and 47 seconds in the very final round ... declaring its winner ...

Johnny Rattlehouse Toothless!

So, tell us about your new golden boy, Dillon McGwire.

This really fight of a lifetime for Dillon McGwire.

He was in need of a second chance and Crush decided to give it to him.

One minute!

Right.

Remember, stay low, try to work your way on the inside.

He will want some big shots. Watch him ... get ready to move. Right?

Whatever happens, make sure she gets out.

On the count of three!

Let's make some noise!

One, two, three!

What the champions never do?

Quit.

He was a wrestling specialist... weighing one ninety ripple-y ... good muscle-y pounds ...

Wait, friends.

Wait for it.

I see you at the end of the second round.

Ladies and gentlemen, a round of applause ...

Dillon McGwire!

And here comes Dillon McGwire, the All American that was once considered ... one of the best amateur wrestlers in the world.

This guy's a huge underdog tonight ... but he doesn't seem to recognize that.

Look at the glare in his eyes. This guy is totally dawdling.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, introducing his opponent ... seeking to maintain its title.

Weighing tonight one hundred... and 88 pounds ...

The Bayou Bomber ...

Titan Powell!

You know what, this guy scares the hell out of me every time I see him.

You talk with him outside the ring and he's the nicest guy possible.

But when he gets inside this cage, he's a complete monster.

Hey, do not worry about it, it's all show.

Despite the reputation of Titan ...

I think we will see a very evenly balanced fight tonight.

Neither of these guys is the kind to give an inch.

And both of the guys are coming in undefeated tonight.

But I just don't think Dillon McGwire has ever dealt ... with the type of power that Titan's gonna bring with his punches tonight.

FEEL MY PAIN

Okay, gentlemen. three three minutes rounds.

Keep it clean. somebody taps, they're gone.

Disengage, and go to your corners.

When the bell rings, come out ready to fight.

Touch gloves.

First round.

Chump.

Fighters ready!

Ready?

Fight!


Powell is going up for the guillotine early here.

Dillon McGwire may be in trouble.

Titan Powell is completely manhandling it.

Get off!

Let it go.

Spilt, spilt.

Ready?

Fight!

Get out, D!


Here, here, here.

Hey. Hey.

Here are two twenties.

You can take that to that guy over there? Thank you.

It's allright. he's good.

Take.

Hey! Keep your hands up, he's fast!

This is a beauty pageant for them.

Sure, if he goes to the floor again he's gonna want to throw in a guillotine.

Open him up. Make him fucking pay.

Get at him !

Ready?

Fight!

I'm gonna break you, fish.

Come !


A spectacular move !

Powell is seeking the guillotine again.

D, get out ! don't take this.


Powell is rocked!


A punch in the eye, maybe two, before it closes completely.

If the eye closes more, I stop this fight.

Why not stop earlier this round? Look at Powell, he can barely stand...


Ready?

Fight!


Dillon McGwire took Powell in a neck key.

This may be the end.

Good job, D!

great gig.

Thanks. Great fight.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have just witnessed history.

The giant has fallen tonight ...

McGwire!

Go.

We have the suspect ...

Hey, man. Hey!

Come on, asshole.

You have the right to remain silent.

I know my rights.

Anything you say or do can be used against you and ...

McGwire I'll kill you! You hear me?!

Take all of Titan Powell's off the website.

I wanna bring McGwire front and center.

Get on the phone with New York, let them know we just had the fight of the century ... broadcast to millions of homes and that this train is leaving the station ... with or without them.

Dillon, that was amazing. I'm talking six figures.

What is going on ? Where is he ?

Who? Seriously, Jake ...

I need to put an interview on the website before Tokyo wakes up.

Yeah... I don't think he's gonna make it.

He just fought the fight of his life ...

We need to cash in.

We did.


Mr. Delano.

All debts paid.

Oh, Jakey.

I knew that'd work out.

Gentlemen.

I don't wanna know.

Mail for you, Ryan. Thanks.

GONE FISHING. PRESS THE BUTTON.
