The film takes a gritty look at the illegal border crossings and the drug trade. Jason Abustan of Iconic Pictures announced that this is the first of a trilogy of Spanish Mixed Martial Arts action films that Iconic will produce. “The Spanish language market for this genre of films is largely untapped. We want to create product for this niche market” For Cage Fight, Iconic Pictures turned to Camacho to produce along with Eaglesnake Productions.
Cage Fight is the story of an illegal immigrant (Willy Ramos) who crosses the border and gets drawn into the underground fight game. He has only two choices, win or die. It also examines the futility of life as an illegal immigrant in this country.
Iconic Pictures currently has another Spanish language film, Once Upon A Fight in postproduction and is in development of a slate of films for 2012/2013 including Final Payback 2, The Unforgiven and Deuces Wild.
