An on-line fight video circulating amongst his classmates solidifies his tough guy image, and soon Ryan (Cam Gigandet),the school's resident bully hopes to knock him down a notch.
Ryan pummels Jake in their first bout, but an onlooker named Max (Evan Peters)believes the Iowan could succeed as a mixed martial artist, and introduces him to his trainer: Jean Roqua (DjimonHounsou), who attempts to channel Jake's anger into a career.
Never Back Down won an MTV Movie Award, and grossed $41 million at the box office, doubling its budget.
