Hey, Ringo, it's time.

Two min-- he's coming.

Freddy's ready, man.

Come on.

Give me a minute.

All right.

I know it ain't The Garden,

but we've got a packed house.

- He's ready, right?

- I'm ready.

Who's up, The Brother?

No, it's The Brother's

brother-- The Brute, Luca.

- Just give us a good show, man.

- Hey, I only know one way to fight.

Yeah, that's why you're still

in this piece-of-sh*t rathole.

- Let's go.

- Come on.

All right, this is your fight,

Ringo, okay?

This is all you, big guy.

You win this, we get 500, all right?

- How's the left arm? It's good?

- Good good.

- F*** off.

Yeah, let's go, baby!

You the man, Luca.

You the man. Do it!

Don't worry about this guy, all right?

I want a good clean fight.

All right, let's fight!

Come on, Ringo.

That's art you're watching, all right?

That's art.

Look at this guy.

He's dancing, okay?

That's like-- that's like dancing.

- Boo!

- Come on, you gonna fight or what?

- That's what I'm doing.

- That's not fighting!

Come on, beat the sh*t out of each other

before this crowd kills us.

- Yeah!

- Come on, get him!



- What's wrong?

- He got a--

Come on!


Come on!


Come on!

Now when you step into that cage,

the first rule of fighting

is don't get hit.

If you break that rule,

then there's another one

which is you're gonna hurt

no matter what.

Gonna hurt like hell.

Gonna hurt like hell.

Gonna hurt like hell.

Now when you step into that cage,

the first rule of fighting

is don't get hit.

Now I told you,

don't-- don't-- don't get hit.

You're gonna get hurt.

The king in his cage.

Get out of there alive.

Now when you step into that cage,

it's gonna hurt like hell.

Don't get hit.

It's gonna hurt like hell.

If you break that rule,

it's gonna hurt like hell.

Live to win.

It's gonna hurt like hell.



You okay?


I'm great.

I'll be out in a sec.

I didn't see it.

Big Freddy didn't see it.

Luca's an a**hole and a cheat.

I don't know which one's worse.

That's okay, Link.

You win some, you lose most.

Here's your cut.

Really? Thanks, Ringo.

It's this one, right?

- Yes.

- Ringo.

- Hey, Pepper.

- Who's my favorite?

How you doing?

You're looking great.

- Hey, Link.

- Hi, Pepper.

Hey, do you think you could

help me do this up?

Is anybody gonna help

with the goddamn beer?

Let me help you with that, Kara.

What the hell happened to your face?

Nothing. Face is fine.

That kid's not supposed

to be back here.

Oh, he's a darling.

And you're late.

I gotta go.

Ringo needs me and I help him so...


- Yeah.

- Thank you.

- I'm gonna go.

- Okay. Bye, Link.

Oh my God, she's so cute

and naked all the time.

- She's just so naked.

- You know you don't work here, right?

I got it.

I'll just hang out with you.

No. Go home.

Yeah, I mean I should go.

Good fight tonight, Ringo.

That was a good fight?

- You're still walking.

- You're right.

- Jesus Christ, you're a mess, Ringo.

- Yeah, ain't that the truth?

All right, we're slammed.

Let's go.

You better slow down or else

you're gonna get those guys drunk.

Stop trying to be charming

and get me my ice, Duran.

Hey, I stopped being

charming for weeks now.

It wasn't doing me any good.

You know, soon enough

I'm gonna start thinking

you're not interested.

I'm not.

So you never told me

what happened to your face.

Well, the guy went left,

I went right.

- You know how it goes.

- What happened when you went right?

I blocked his punch with my face.

What are you doing when you're

not fighting or getting me ice anyway?

- Sleep.

- Yeah? Alone?

Kara, you know, can I take five?

Yeah, sure.

Just bring me back

a couple boxes of ice.

Sure, no problem.

- Yo, give me a beer.

- Not you again.

- Hey, I made 20 bucks tonight.

- Link.

Ringo, where you going?

Hey, Mr. Ponzo,

I didn't see you come in.

Well, I saw you.

I saw you sneaking away

like a little dog.

What, all you guys are alike?

Look, Sergio, why don't

you go to the VIP?

I'll send you a bottle

and we can talk things--

I didn't come here to talk.

I didn't come to look at the girls.

You know why I'm here.

It's time for you

to give me back my money.


All right.

- What the f*** is this?

- It's all I got.

Are you kidding me?

It's all you got?

There's a huge disparity between

all you got and what you owe.

- That's the story of my life.

- You don't get it, do you?

This is an insult.

You owe me--


Ringo, I got a business

to run, all right?

I got a reputation to uphold

and if I allow one person

to be one day late,

my whole system could fail.

Now you owe me $20,000

and I want it now.

Six years of self-defense

and three bad boyfriends.

Try me, a**hole.

Ringo, the girls here

fight better than you.

Yeah, you don't need to tell me that.

- Should I call the police?

- Heh, the police?

Sugar-britches, we own the police.

- We gonna have a problem?

- No, we don't have a problem.

Ringo is the one with the problem--

Now I'm gonna give you

till the end of the month

and that's only 'cause I like you.

I wanna see you still breathing.

Jeez, did your cut open?

I don't know.

I can't feel anything.

Who's looking after the bar?

The boys in the front can handle it.

- Just hold still.
