The youngest son of an alcoholic former boxer returns home, where he’s trained by his father for competition in a mixed martial arts tournament – a path that puts the fighter on a collision course with his estranged, older brother.

So you found God, huh? That’s awesome. See, Mom kept calling out for him but he wasn’t around. I guess Jesus was down at the mill forgiving all the drunks. Who knew?
Tom Conlon

Come on, kiddo. I’ve been there. I’ve done it. I’ve seen it. You can trust me. I’ll understand.
Paddy Conlon
Spare me the compassionate father routine, Pop. The suit don’t fit.
Tom Conlon
I’m really trying here, Tommy.
Paddy Conlon
You’re trying? Now? Where were you when it mattered? I needed this guy back when I was a kid. I don’t need you now. It’s too late now. Everything’s already happened. You and Brendan don’t seem to understand that. Let me explain something to you: the only thing I have in common with Brendan Conlon is that we have absolutely no use for you.
Tom Conlon

That’s Tess. And that’s Emily and Rosie. They’re your nieces, Tommy.
Brendan Conlon
Don’t know ’em.
Tom Conlon
I know you don’t know them. Of course you don’t know them.
Brendan Conlon
Why am I looking at pictures of people I don’t know?
Tom Conlon
Because that’s my family.
Brendan Conlon
And who are you exactly?
Tom Conlon
I’m your brother, man.
Brendan Conlon
You were in the Corps?
Tom Conlon
What?
Brendan Conlon
I said I didn’t know you were in the Corps.
Tom Conlon
I wasn’t in the Corps.
Brendan Conlon
Then you ain’t no brother to me. My brother was in the Corps.
Tom Conlon

The devil you know…
Paddy Conlon
…is better than the devil you don’t.
Tom Conlon

I popped his shoulder.
Brendan Conlon
Relax. Breathe.
Frank Campana
I heard it tear.
Brendan Conlon
You popped his shoulder? Good. I want you to pop his other shoulder.
Frank Campana

I’ll tell you what: you do that to someone on the street and they’d lock you up and throw away the key! Break out the yellow tape, Sam. Tommy’s walking away from the cage like he’s leaving a crime scene.
– Bryan Callen

You gotta relax and stay calm in there. The cage is your home. You set the pace. You set the rhythm. Feel the Beethoven. Be smarter than him, more patient. Wait for him to make a mistake. And when he does, that’s your moment.
– Frank Campana

Alright. Alright. But you get something through your skull, too. You called me. So don’t go threatening to walk every five minutes. And since this is about training, you dump whatever it is you need to dump as far as those pills are concerned. I don’t want to see ’em. In fact, hand ’em over right now. I know they’re on you, Tommy. You sounded like a goddamn maraca coming through the door.
– Paddy Conlon

I think I liked you better when you were a drunk.
– Tom Conlon
