His amateur Mixed Martial Arts videos go viral grabbing the attention of the world's top MMA federation. Hector is then given a dream come true opportunity to go up against the MMA World Champion; a vicious fighter whose last opponent is in critical condition in the same hospital as his son.

Get up, get up.

- F***ing fight, huh?!

- Damn!

Yeah! Yeah! Come on!

I guess I'll try number three!

Watch it, get him!

Let go! Let go!

Our winner!

- You got that?

- Not of all if it, I...

Okay. I'm going to collect our money.

I'll give you 10% tomorrow.

Don't even worry about that Champ.

You need the money

and you are good for it,

I trust you. Besides, I made

like, an extra 40 on the fight.

I told you to stop betting.

I know, look, just go

get your money, okay?

Yeah, sure. Say hi

to Maria for me, okay?

Sh*t! She's gonna kill me.

Great fight, Champ! Great fight tonight!

- Thank you, Tony.

- I want to talk.

I gotta few ideas,

- some things coming up...

- You got my money?

Oh, yeah, yeah. Right here.

You know I was thinking that kid, uh,

that Black Scorpion out of Compton.

He's a little vicious bastard

but I think you could take his ass.

Why don't we set that up for next week?

You're short, Tony.

You're short 40 bucks.

Yeah I know. I had some, uh,

some unexpected expenses

this week. But I'll tell you what,

I'm going to make it up to you, alright?

Tony, I was really coming

about money, man. I need those 40.

I'll tell you what, kid.

I'm gonna add an additional 20

onto next week, huh? After the fight.

How's that sound?

- Tony... Yeah, yeah okay.

- Huh? Let's go have a drink.

What are you drinking?

- Ice. Get me ice, a lot of ice.

- Ice?!

- You gonna drink ice?

- Get me a diet coke, whatever.

Why don't you have a real drink?

Thank you, Tony.

Champ Cage the Destroyer Fury

knocked out his opponent in 3 seconds,

which became the new fasted time

in MMA history.

The UXC is running out

of opponents for the Champ

and the president, John Stone,

is looking for challengers.

Cage Fury, man. World MMA Champion.

It's my dream to fight with him.

Dream? Should be more

like your nightmare.

Let's drink to that.

Hey, pretty boy.

- Nice fight tonight.

- Thanks.

My boy here, Little Juan,

says you fight like his abuelita.

You know, he's probably right.

You guys have a great night, ok?

Not now. I like him.

He reminds me of my little pit-bull.

- How are you guys doing?

- We're okay.

How'd you do?

Not too good.

Oh, thank God.

Thank God is right.

Okay, so we can pay the electricity bill

tomorrow and the water next week.

You worry too much.

I got it all taken care of.

He's good, he's strong, Hector.

- Go to bed, I'll met you there.

- Okay.

How are you doing, buddy?

- How was your day, baby?

- It was okay.

Look at your face.

Yeah, I'm getting prettier

by the minute.

How did you win?

I got this guy in a triangle, you know.

When I got him where I need,

I squeezed with all my might.

It was a good fight.

Hector, I know that you love this

and I've never seen you so happy, but...

But I need to get a real job.

Don't worry, I got a few

interviews tomorrow.

- I'll get something.

- I know you're trying, baby.

It's just that...

You know, when I'm fighting...

when I'm in there...

just for a moment, you know...

I feel like I'm a winner.

I feel like I'm somebody, you know.

I can take all my pain

and all my anger out.

And right after they raise my hand,

you and Martin immediately

come to my mind.

And I realize right there

how much I love you both.


Goodnight, I love you too.

Goodnight, baby.


What's happening, baby?

I can't figure out

how to load this thing.

I'm going crazy.

I told you, you have to treat it

like a baby.

Gently and with a lot of love.

That special nurse's touch

only you seem to posses.

Alright, let's see what we got here.

Holy sh*t!

This is the guy I was telling you about,

he's a superstar in the web

and he's actually a better

than okay fighter.

The Mexican Chavez?

You know, you might be a genius.

He's exactly what we are looking for.

The Latinos represent 50%

of our pay per view sales.

I told you I'd find somebody.

I can see it now; he's Mexico,

he's America, he's today, he's tomorrow.

Not just somebody, but a dream.

We can do the fight on Cinco de Mayo.

I never doubt you, but that's

three weeks away, I mean...

- He might not even be in shape.

- Listen.

The late choice will build

the drama even higher.

Come on guys, I don't have all day.

I didn't come here to see this show.

Look, this is the perfect fight

for your boy.

You get a great commission,

three weeks away,

- Mexican Independence Day.

- Take a look.

Brent, would you put

some salve on my tattoo?

It eases the inflammation.

This guy's an amateur.

That's exactly why

he's the perfect challenger.

He's Hispanic so we make a lot of money,

and your boy cruises

to another easy fight.

- I don't know.

- It's the finest fuel

to feed the flame of the myth

of Cage the Destroyer Fury.

Hey, fighter.

Whoa, what happened to your face?

- Your wife hit me.

- Oh, come on.

How's my little brother doing?

I'm not your little brother anymore.

I'm 42, I have a wife and a kid.

You're still my little brother.

I want to know why

you haven't come to church?

Isn't it enough Jesus has got you.

Can't you just pray for the two of us?

No. It doesn't work that way.

Well, too bad brother.

That's why you asked me to come here?

What do you need?

Why am I here?

I need one of your blessings, ok?

I have a few job interviews

and I need all the help I can get.

- Jobs?

- Yeah.

You know you always have my blessing.
