Step inside champion-making MMA coach Javier Mendez's American Kickboxing Academy and Josh Koscheck's Dethrone Base Camp and witness the grueling training, unguarded candid moments and solid-as-brass brotherhood that comes with chasing the American dream in a sport that can turn a college wresting hero into a globally-respected MMA superstar overnight.
