Green Power Ranger vs Van Damme, Who Ya Got?
In case you didn't know, Jason David Frank, also known as the Green Power Ranger, or White Power Ranger, depending on when you watched the show, is a mixed martial artist. He's undefeated in MMA with an amateur record of 4 and 0, and a professional record of 1 and 0.
And in case you didn't know, Jean-Claude Van Damme used to be a kick boxer, amassing a record of 18 and 1. Although he hasn't fought since 1982. And no, none of his movies count as actual fighting. But you can enjoy this clip, courtesy of MovieClips.
Yup, that is the Muscles from Brussels getting down on the beach in the movie Breakin'. And it's always funny ignoring his actual fighting and just bringing that scene up because JCVD fans lose their freakin' minds.
But anyway, I'm going somewhere with this. So both of these guys have actually fought in some capacity. Now, it's looking like they might fight each other in real life. While there's no fighting the clip below, you can tell there is some arguing going on.
Just what are they arguing about? The beef between the two goes back to 1995 when the two exchanged words at the premiere of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie. Frank publicly called out JCVD back in 2010, but nothing ever happened.
It now looks like JCVD is ready to throw down because at a comic con in Mexico over the weekend, he confronted Frank. And according to the Green Power Ranger, it was all a set up.
According to Frank, He was asked to meet with JCVD by one of his handlers. Then, when he went to meet up, JCVD showed up with cameras rolling and he demanded an apology from Frank, and said that if he wanted to fight, "let's throw down."
The situation ended up being settled rather quickly, although Van Damme did end up in a head lock, courtesy of Frank. But more importantly, the two apparently agreed to fight an MMA style match. When? Who knows. Where? I don't have a clue.
