Punches are thrown and hearts are broken in the trailer for DirecTV's MMA drama Kingdom.

There is just as much drama outside of the ring as there is in it, as the mom of one character is a prostitute. Meanwhile, a love triangle develops when one of the gym's star fighters falls for the gym owner's girlfriend.

Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Kiele Sanchez (The Purge: Anarchy) and Jonathan Tucker (Parenthood) also star. The series, from creator Byron Balasco and Endemol Studios, premieres on Oct. 8 on DirecTV.
