[ cheers and applause ] that's two handhelds on stage, two steadicams, three slashes, two robos, and a beauty. yeah, that's0 cameras in total. thanks. there's a reason fightingnet turnedo me to find a package to launch their channel. and that's what you want from wells? he's giving me programming. yes, the ufc is booming but the fans want more. real guys in real fights. that's what wells is giving me. that's what he says he's giving you. now, who's paying for all this? my production company. costs us around $500,000. and for that, trust me, you get the best. like our director here. camera three! camera three! move off of her! she's hideous. the chick is packing, trust me. trianna doesn't have any pretty fans? todd laurence ain't happy. i'm not happy. this is some bull. seriously, guys, i thought we were running a professional show here, people. run that back. give me a reay. i'm sorry. d-did i stutter?

in exchange, we get the pay-per-view profits. with wells' fights, we'd start small. maybe 10 bucks a buy. well, that's a quarter of what the ufc charge well, you need to be competitive in this economy. fightingnet thinks we'd get 500,000 viewers, conservative. th's about... that's $5 million. is that a year? sweetie, no. $5 million an event. we'd do five, six a year. so just so we're clear. you spend $500,000 to make $5 million? it's called deficit financing. it's how tv works. and all you need is a product? well, that's what they are -- products. u get the girls with trianna, you get the boys with mma. and there's always another fresh-faced prince ready to go through the singing/dancing mill in florida. occasionally we let one be a lesbian. keeps the press on their toes. i want in. oh! it's not that easy, sugar. i have an agreement. agreement? the man's a fraud.
10:33 am

[ chuces ] sweetie, you're talking half a million dollars of your own money. no, no, no. unh-unh. that's not gonna work. well, look, you said it yourself -- you need product, and that's what i've got. you and i -- we understand each other. we think alike. and i've got an equity line on my gym i can tap. you'll have the money tomorrow. well, then, call me when you have your funds together. i'll bring the paperwork. sophie: did you get all that? got it. great job. we should be on our way home by this time tomorrow. you sure about that? and you checked the other place, too? no one's heard of him?

10:41 am
but that's the thing. you know, see, you're favored. so i'm gonna need you to take a dive. come on. come on. fine. go back to l.a. or wherever. it's a shame you won't be here next month, when jack howorth's house goes on fire. or in six weeks, when mark has a car accident. but you won't be around for any of that. i'll do it. you don't have to do anything. yeah, i do. and then you lay off the howorths. you do what you have to do and they'll be fine. but i'm betting it all on tank here, so it can't look like a fix. and feel free to use the gym. we don't want anybody to think you're not ready. what? what?
10:42 am
he's right. we couldn't have planned for that. look, you know what i can do? i can re-task a satellite, i can get a level 3 nsa clearance, but i can't hack a hick. all right, it doesn't matter. what do we do now? we can mov the howorths. we're not movi the howorths. all right? this is their home. that means something to people here. yeah, we can't babysit them forever. we've taken out bigger players than this. you know, there's got to be some way... no. no. i take the dive. you sure? give me some time, okay? i've found some funny business in rucker's accounts. i can move some things. forget the fact that we just got beat by barney fife, all right? this is the right move. tactically it's the right move. you all know that. hey! listen, you -- you don't have to do this, you know.
10:43 am
i'm losing a fight, sophie. i'm not diving on a grenade. i'll be all right. yeah, i know. i'm not talking physically. i think my ego can handle it. look, you told me that it's about control, about knowing that you're never gonna be the victim. and that's what keeps you going, right? you think i'm upset 'cause i got to let this guy kick my ass? i learned long time ago, you can't control the violence. i can take the punishment. that's what i do. what i need to control is not out there.
10:44 am
[ cheers and applause ] all right, tank. go for his ribs. all right? engel? did you place that bet? yeah. wasn't easy. no one loc would handle that kind of action, so i had to lay it off on a bunch of different bookies online. well, th's fine. at least i can't get ripped off by one guy. are you sure you want to bet it all? what if this guy doesn't go down like he said? don't worry. he'll go down. i've got an insurance policy.

[ safe beeping ] you're running? why? this was an uninsured, unsanctioned fight. i could be on the hook for millions in liability. [ breathing heavily ] there's probably gonna be a manslaughterharge, and i could be an accessory. i'm not taking the fall for that. besides, none of this is worth anything anymore. wait. get out of my way! jed! [ car alarm chirps ]
10:55 am
yep. he's gone. you plant the transmitter? wired to his gps. looks like he's headed to iowa. make the call. jack: what's going on? uh, just give me a sec. doc? you got tank, right? yeah. oh, he'll be fine. should come around in a few minutes. wait, wait. he's not dd? succinylcholine. it's a mild paralytic. it only works for a few minutes. yeah, it was just enough to scare off rucker. so -- so eliot... no, no, no. we found -- we found the drugged water bottle before the fight, switched it out with a clean one. rucker's not too original when it comes to this kind of thing, apparently. so, jonny, you were in on this? mr. ford and his friends came and asked me for help. i told him around here, we always stand up for our own. where's rucker? oh, the iowa state police just got a tip that a fugitive is headed into their jurisdiction. and i'm pretty sure crossing state lines with a bag full of cash won't look too good.
10:56 am
the little surprise in his trunk. i need guns. $6,000 worth. and one of those. like i said, i can explain the money. i can explain the money. man: oh, yeah? how do you explain this? those are not mine! those are not mine! i don't know how they got there! somebody put them there. somebody -- that should hold him off until the irs gets down here. the irs? yeah, the money that rucker makes from these fights? well, it's all in cash. yeah, and he wasn't too good about reporting that income. hardison, his financials. hardison: his money's all over the pce. just give me a minute to plow thorough this, man. just give me some time. i've found some funny business rucker's accounts. all we had to do was flag the government about the tax evasion. rucker won't be coming back to town anytime soon. he doesn't have anything to come back for. he literally bet the whole house on tank.
10:57 am
well, you see, not exactly. engel? did you place that bet? yeah. wasn't easy. no one local would handle that kind of action, so i had to lay it off on a bunch of different bookies online. where's your cousin jimmy now? dr. wertheim: you took a hell of a pounding. we should get you a ct scan. you could have internal bleeding. you let yourself get hammered like that on purpose? that's a hell of a lot of punishment to take. that's what he does. so, with rucker out of the picture, the management of this gym and all the fighters -- it's all up in the air. you guys could use a fresh start. they just need a little direction. i mean, the place could use some spit and polish, but it's solid. you might not be able to fight anymore, but you know the sport. you know what it means to commit to something. so, what do you say?
10:58 am
the right way? plus, you know what? you'll have some seed money from rucker's bet. i mean, enough to get you started. let me get this straight -- you guys want me to be in charge? of all this? of all the guys? they're fighters. like you. you treat them that way, and you'll be fine. what do you say, son? [ chuckles ] thank you. thank you. thank you so much. thank you. [ laughs ] you know, i-if we moved those heavy bags out of the way, we could make room for a video station. yeah. put some mats down, get some grapplingummies. that'll work. pork rind? ugh. they're actually pretty good. [ crunching ]
10:59 am
[ indistinct conversations ] mr. maranjian, please stand. do you have anything to say before the court renders its sentence? perhaps an apology to your victims here in court. i don't want to take up any more of the court's time. very well.
11:00 am
