I practice with these Chinese fighters who taught me a little bit how the fight needs to be “this” because Li Yong has a combination of wing chun and jeet kun do and then other Shaolin feels. He’s always fluid, changing his fight style depending on the opponent. It didn’t feel like it’s a new…

Warrior season 2 has a trailer, and will arrive on Cinemax in October. Warrior Season 2 is officially set at Cinemax! Warrior is a period piece action drama set against the backdrop of the brutal Tong Wars of San Francisco’s Chinatown in the second half of the 19th century.
There’s not a single unexpected beat anywhere in the whole plot of Warrior, and certainly not the fact that when both brothers miraculously (too-miraculously, really) end up in the same international MMA tournament with a winner-take-all $5 million purse at the end of it – and Edgerton’s Brendan Conlon not even being a Sep 16,…
For instance, being AWOL for less than three days can result in a maximum penalty of confinement for one month and forfeiture of two-thirds pay for one month. After 30 days or more, service members face dishonorable discharge, forfeiture of all pay and allowances, and a one-year confinement.

Brendan Conlon may be loosely based on the life of real-life UFC fighter Rich “Ace” Franklin. Like the character, Franklin was also a high school teacher who took part in cage-fights to make extra money. Frank Grillo based his character on famed MMA trainer Greg Jackson.
In the end the brothers are the last fighters remaining in the tournament. It is revealed to the world that the two men are brothers. Despite Brendan’s desire to reconcile, Tommy shows no interest in doing so. Tommy wins the first two rounds, but Brendan eventually dislocates Tommy’s shoulder with an omoplata arm-lock.
