!''Undisputed II: Last Man Standing''

The second film in the series was a B-movie directed by Isaac Florentine, as opposed to Walter Hill. It came out in 2006. This time, Chambers was upgraded from a [[VillainProtagonist Villain Protagonist]] to an [[AntiHero Anti Hero]], and was played by Michael Jai White. In this particular setting, Mafia-types run the prison fighting organization of a particular Russian prison and make money off of it. They frame Chambers for drug use so he will be sent to jail and they can pit him against their own resident champion, Yuri Boyka (played by Scott Adkins). For a while, Chambers refuses to fight Boyka, but they promise he will be freed. So he agrees. As you can see, it's fairly similar to the plot of the first movie. This film was given a much better reception, however, because of its far better characters, cinematography, writing, fight choreography... pretty much everything really.

* TheAce: As the most complete fighter in the world, Boyka is crazily proficient in striking, dodging and grappling. The only way to beat him is training to become another Ace.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Boyka.
* ArtisticLicenseMartialArts: Partially subverted. The fight scenes have some realism, but Boyka's high-flying stunts are obviously not suited for a real MixedMartialArts fight.
* {{Badass}}: Chambers and Boyka.
* BadBoss: Boyka's training method consistst mainly in brutalizing his obedient mooks.
* BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame: During their first fight, Boyka tries to beat Chambers with only fists, but he ends briefly knocked out. Consequently, he drops the handicap off and starts to use his legs to work Chambers over.
* BloodKnight: Boyka.
* ChekhovsSkill: The kneebar variation which Nikolai teach to Chambers, [[spoiler:who later uses it to break Boyka's leg.]]
* CrapsackWorld
* DivingKick: Boyka pulls some.
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Stevie.]]
* GoodOldFisticuffs: Chambers's fighting style.
* KarmaHoudini: Gaga, the evil mastermind of the film, leaves the film with millions in his pocket.
* MotherRussiaMakesYouStrong
* OldMaster: Nikolai becomes one.
* RealMenLoveJesus: In a negative, almost frightening light. Yuri seems to be a devout member of the Russian Orthodox church, but it doesn't stop it from killing people nonchalantly.
* SmugSnake: Gaga.
* SurprisinglyHappyEnding: To Chambers and Nikolai, at least.
* TrainingFromHell: By Chambers in order to beat Boyka.
* WickedCultured: Boyka plays chess and collects stamps.
* WinYourFreedom
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: During his training, Boyka performs a hurricanrana to one of his henchmen.
* YouHaveFailedMe: After knowing Chambers was drugged, an enraged Boyka kills two of his cornermen, who were the plotters of the ruse.

!''Undisputed III: Redemption''

The third and so far final movie, this features [[AntiHero Yuri Boyka]] as the protagonist after [[spoiler:he gets his leg and pride broken by Chambers during their final fight in the last movie]]. Having recently healed these wounds, Boyka returns to the ring and enters a prison tournament where fighters from all over the world compete for the prize of winning their freedom. There he butts heads with a loudmouthed American boxer named "Turbo". Uncomfortably reminded of Chambers, Boyka clashes with Turbo repeatedly; however, eventually they begin to grow on each other, until they eventually unite against Raúl "Dolor" Quiñones to beat him in the fixed tournament. It was mostly lauded as a worthy sequel to ''Last Man Standing'', marked (as was the last one) by incredible choreography that was unaided by CGI, wires, or stunt doubles.

* AntiHero: Boyka and Turbo.
* ArtisticLicenseMartialArts: Even more than the previous film. Boyka, Andriago and others show their badassery by executing crazy flying stunts in their otherwise MixedMartialArts fights.
* {{Badass}}: Yuri is the most complete fighter in the world. Period.
** BadassBeard
** BadassBoast: "''God has given me only one thing; I am the most complete fighter in the world."
* BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame: Boyka submits Andriago (who is Brazilian) with a triangle choke, a move made popular by ''Brazilian'' jiu-jitsu.
* BeneathTheMask: As confessed to Turbo, Boyka thinks that fighting is the only thing he can do.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:Turbo pulls one to save Boyka]].
* BreakTheHaughty: Thanks to his knee injury, Boyka has learned empathy. He is not an ArrogantKungFuGuy anymore.
* BrokenAce: Boyka, due to his injury.
* {{Capoeira}}: Andriago's fighting style.
* CurbStompBattle: Boyka vs Sykov and Dolor vs Chai.
* {{Determinator}}: Turbo and specially Boyka.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: [[spoiler:Jericho]] "Turbo" Jones.
* {{Expy}}: Boyka notices Turbo as one of Chambers. Also Dolor counts as one to Boyka.
* FireForgedFriends: Yuri and Turbo.
* GameBreakingInjury: [[spoiler:Boyka's bad knee. YMMV on the fact that he would have easily beaten everyone without it.]]
* GoodOldFisticuffs: Turbo's fighting style.
* GratuitousSpanish: Dolor has some lines in Spanish, as he is Colombian.
* HandwrapsOfAwesome: Many fighters.
* HeelFaceTurn: Thanks to his new experiences, Boyka is a nicer guy at the end of the movie than he was at the previous film.
* HotBlooded: Turbo.
* HurricaneKick: Korean fighter Lam Chai tries some taekwondo kicking combinations against Dolor.
* MeaningfulEcho: "I am the most complete fighter in the world."
* MeaningfulName: "Dolor" means "Pain" in Spanish.
* MotherRussiaMakesYouStrong
* RoundhouseKick: Boyka, Chai and Dolor are prone to spinning kicks while fighting. The latter pulls a specially flashy one to throw Boyka out the ring.
* PetTheDog: After beating Andriago, for the first time Boyka helps his opponent up from the mat.
* PrisonsAreGymnasiums: A recurrent trope in the series, obviously, more on the "Tough Guy becomes even tougher" side of things, taken to the extreme here: doing labour can be used to work out.
* RealMenLoveJesus: Yuri still being a Christian devout, although not so explicitely as the previous film.
* SacrificialLion: Lam Chai, apparently a very capable fighter, is destroyed by Dolor in a pretty crushing way just to show Dolor's viciousness.
* UnnecessaryCombatRoll: Well, [[OverlyLongGag Boyka is the most complete fighter in the world]].
* WickedCultured: Dolor is shown reading García Lorca poems during his free time.
