Jack, a young martial artist, competes in an MMA tournament in Japan in an effort to gain the acceptance of his biological father whom he has never met and who has denied his existence. Jack wins the tournament — but learns too late that the victory brings with it life-long servitude to the Yakuza (in Japanese, “Yakuzano”).
With his interest in gaining his father’s approval greater than the penthouse, money, girls and fancy cars that come with being the Yakuza’s Champion, Jack escapes the Yakuza and heads to the U.S. to show his father his championship trophy — but gets stranded and held by the insane Chief of Police of Centerville, an isolated, rural California mining town that time and excitement has passed by.
When the Chief learns of Jack’s stature in the world of MMA from a mysterious young woman claiming to be a reporter from Ultimate Fighter Magazine, the Chief sees an opportunity to change his town’s dead-end existence and gives Jack an ultimatum: fight in a staged tournament in Centerville — or go to prison on trumped-up charges.
When an escape from Centerville is made possible by a brave and helpful local, Jack faces the dilemma of saving himself or help rid the town of the insane Chief — decides on the latter and stays.
The Chief’s control of his tournament goes out the window with the arrival of the Yakuza boss and martial artists from around the world — all of whom hell-bent on being the Yakuza’s Champion and unseating Jack.
The tournament becomes a fight-to-the-death — a fight with unexpected twists and turns.
