I know guys like Jet Li, Steven Segal, W. Snipes, Jackie Chan and Bruce will make it, but what about the rest?
Well, even though Jacki Chan is a 'comedian', he is a trained fighter. But I doubt that Steven Segal still has any juice left. My personal fave would be Jet Li because I know he is a trained fighter. But I know quite a few 'real life' martial art fighters who would beat the crap out of them in any real competition.
One of our prize fighters here in Jamaica is Dwain Brown who beat Hong Kong, Japan, China, Canada and US.
I also believe the Chief Instructor for the Jamaica Self Defense Academy could beat the crap out of any one of them, oh and Patty English could do it too!
First of all, what is the UFC? Never heard of it.
Martial arts are many and varied and what few movies I have seen depicting them are extremely inaccurate.
I studied shotokan for a number of years and never once saw it accurately depicted in film, in terms of the mental discipline which far surpasses the physical requirements. People seem to think that the martial arts are simply a way of learning how to fight better than the next guy, while nothing could be further from the truth.
The hardest part for me was probably learning the required rudiments of the Japanese language!
Hi Gordon, the UFC is the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and you are right. Even fighters who have been trained who act movie parts have to be train with a movie fighter. It has to appear a certain way on film for it to be "exciting" . It's never as it really seem.
I think most of those guys you listed would have been ripped to pieces, even at the top of their game.
Don't beleive any of the ones mentioned would succeed because UFC is largely dominated by ground assault by jiu jitsu practitioners.. talking k-1 might be different story since its all on feet fighting dominated by kickers. Lee would dominate in k-1 in his division but not UFC in my opinion but who knows . John liu could dominate his class in k-1 as well but not UFC again. Seagall is up in the air for me...at his particular weight class probably not much in UFC but maybe at cruiserweight he could dominate with some ground ability and aikido takedowns and locks but not in k-1: just the opposite: i think the venue matters
I also beleive Lee would dominate in a weapons venue so again I think it depends on the venue . as would Gordon Liu in a weapons venue.. ever watch Heroes of the East, that guys proficient in just about every weapon available not just nunchucku.
I'll throw a name into the mix- Chuck Norris. In his prime would Chuck Norris be able to fight in the UFC?
I'll be honest I know what the UFC is but never really watched it

Do you find the 'Ultimate Fighting Championship' entertaining? Or should the UFC be banned?Ultimate Fighting Championship, the most violent "sport" on Earth. Do you agree? Do you think that it's time to ban it? Or are you a big fan?

Who remembers the UFC when it started back in the 90s? It was much different, it's evolved a lot. Most of the participants were clearly not prepared for that environment of the Octagon. There was the Ninjitsu guy, Pat Smith, some good Muay Thai and kickboxers, Dan Severn, interesting Judo and Jiu...
