Five different nations. Five different styles. One goal.
A young Kung-Fu master following his spiritual path. A pugilist from Scotland trying to resurrect a failed boxing career. A Russian Sambo expert looking for a new lease on life in America. A Mexican luchador attempting to cross over into mixed martial arts. A street thug searching for a new lease on life off the streets.
Drifting from across the globe to the small south Texas town of San Uvalde, the fighters assemble under the banner of a risk-taking entrepreneur. Combining their diverse backgrounds and unique skills, the men become a team united in one goal: glory in the new sport of mixed martial arts.
But will their unity and skills be enough to overcome their individual shortcomings, demons, and doubts when they are locked in a cage and tested by some of the deadliest fighters in the world? There will be only one supreme champion, and it will take more than skill, guts, and determination to succeed among a reborn breed of warriors: Pit Fighters.
"This is one of the most imaginative, yet true-to-the-sport accounts of the hard living that trained fighters must endure. Casual fight fans will be drawn in quickly as Ibarra paints the picture perfectly for them, while longtime fans will thrill with every vivid description of falls, punches, holds, and triumphs."
