In Cagefighter: Worlds Collide, Reiss Gibbons (actor and CONTENDERS MMA fighter Alex Montagnani) is on the cusp of cementing himself as the greatest to ever step inside the LEGENDS cage. But when a savvy promoter Max Black (Gina Gershon) pits him against pro wrestling superstar, Randy Stone (AEW Champion, Jon Moxley) in the company's first ever cross-promotional event, Reiss finds himself in the toughest fight of his life. Adding to the star-studded cast are UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell, Two-time World Heavyweight Champion, Jay Reso, and former UFC Middleweight and Strikeforce Champion, Luke Rockhold. Cagefighter: Worlds Collide will be available for streaming purchase on Saturday, May 16 outside of the US exclusively by FITE.
