(mbc.net) Before moving to Orlando, Jake Tyler (Sean Faris) was the star of his football team.  At his new high school, however, he's an outcast from Iowa with a short fuse.  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.
