“Fight of the Century was a great acquisition for us, I grew up on movies such as BloodsportLionheart, and Rocky. This title that Troy and Nick have created harkens back to those movies and the good old days of arena action," Second Sight Publishing CEO Bradley Golden states.

Called "FOTC" for short, FIGHT OF THE CENTURY is a story about the sport of MMA (mixed martial arts) decades from now. In a futuristic Brazil, performance-enhancing drugs have gone from behind-the-scenes banned substances to front-and-center game-changers. The sports world as we know it has been revolutionized! Nowhere is that more on display than inside Neo-Rio, a mega-city that serves as the home to the Fighters Ultimate Exhibition League (FUEL).  Men are becoming monsters in minutes as fighters are putting their lives on the line in the octagon.

The story follows two opposing fighters: Rex Punga, a down on his luck farmboy-turned-MMA fighter, and D.O.A., a legacy fighter with a family history he's desperate to live up to. After a drug-fueled incident that nearly ends both their careers, Punga and Andrade will both attempt two separate comebacks that will once again entangle both men -- in emotional, hyper-violent, and action-packed ways. At the center of this rivalry is BrawnPharm, an evil pharmaceutical corporation that has drugged all of Brazil into compliance and will do anything to protect their nefarious bottom line!
