In Bangkok Revenge, Jon Foo plays a character named Manit, who witnesses the murder of his parents when he's 10 years old. The criminals attempt to kill the boy by shooting him in the head, but he survives. However, the resulting damage to his brain leaves him unable to experience normal human emotions.

A martial arts master takes in the youth and mentors him. Twenty years later, his combat skills honed to a fine edge, Manit returns to the scene of the crime in search of justice.

The Triller Fight Club pay-per-view platform has gained immense popularity recently by hosting pop culture-fueled boxing matches such as Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather and Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley. They were back in action on Saturday night with a card that featured multiple MMA legends as Vitor Belfort challenged Evander Holyfield and Anderson Silva went toe-to-toe with Tito Ortiz in a boxing ring.

The first of these two bouts was the showdown between former UFC champions Ortiz and Silva. Ortiz came out swinging with a series of punches, but they were simply too slow for the elusive Silva. Silva ducked under a series of punches, connected with a hard right hand, and followed with the left to send Ortiz to the canvas. In just 81 seconds, Silva knocked out his fellow 46-year-old combatant and improved his boxing record to 3-1. Before Ortiz, Silva also defeated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. via split decision back in June.
