In No Surrender, which picking up two years after the events of the second film, the former MMA champion Case Walker is on the comeback trail to become champion once again.
It’s been two years since Case Walker has re-entered the world of professional mixed martial arts fighting, but had grown tired of it. He now competes in amateur bouts in an effort to teach his opponents how to utilize their skills. After such a match in Beaumont, Texas, Case runs into Brody James, an old friend who is also a MMA fighter. Brody has signed with PFC Combat, a promotion run by Hugo Vega, in which Brody has signed to fight the 7-foot beast Caesar Braga for the PFC Championship in Bangkok. Brody asks Case to help him train for the fight, knowing Case needs to find his way back as well as attempt to help Brody go on the straight and narrow. Case reluctantly accepts Brody’s offer and goes to Thailand.
Case goes to the Top Fight Gym, where he already finds resistance from Brody’s other trainer, Matty Ramos. Their difference in training methods make them rivals. To make matters worse, Case gets ridiculed for his training by Cobra O’Conor, a younger fighter whose arrogance gets the best of him. When Brody shows up, Cobra insists on taking Case on in a match of “old school vs. new school”. Matty warns Cobra to take it easy, but the arrogant Cobra refuses to listen and faces Case. Case deflects Cobra’s moves and uses elements from Kyokushin to pound Cobra to a state of unconsciousness. Brody seems upset with Case with the pummeling of Cobra, but tells him he was kidding and that he agreed that Cobra had what was coming to him. Case soon finds himself becoming a mentor to two up-and-coming fighters, Taj and Creech. Case’s pummeling of Cobra attracts the attention of Vega, who is revealed to have some sort of history with Case. PFC marketing director Myca Cruz begins to have a liking to Case and asks him on a date to get to know him, to which he agrees.
