I see this thread as a fun fantasy one where we'll gather in our minds what we see from actors in movies(physical shape, movements, techniques) to hypothetically project into real fight business.

Some actors will learn one or two moves just to look good on the big screen, others will have actual fighting background.

That being said: Michael Jai White should figure on any list like that.

The guy is not only a legit and accomplished martial artist, but also a technical choreographer for movie fight scenes, so fights can look way more realistic on the movies.

Here's a cool video about it.



You don't have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.

My friend who I train with showed me photos of Dolph Lundgren training with his dad. His dad then regaled us with a few tales and Dolph is a bad ass.

Oh never mind, I thought the title indicated these guys could do well "as is". Carry on then.

Also I had no idea Dolph was such a badass in real life. He was always my favorite movie villain as a kid ... once I even tried to get the barber to give me the Ivan Drago cut

I think athletic ability and toughness wise Jackie Chan is a good choice for list topper ... the guy had by far the best and toughest to perform fight choreography I've seen, and he took some crazy punishment with his stunts but just shook it off for the next one.

One of the most under rated films. Best Of The Best! That jumping back reverse kick is something I've imagined myself doing against a bad guy sending him crashing into a window. Then saving the damsel in distress. I've envisioned this many time and have practiced in my room. One day...

Also to mention, Tony Jaa

And what about Brad Pitt - Fight Club says it all
Wesley always says to bet on black.

Oh...I got one I don't think anybody mentioned yet. Actually a few.

TONG PO! Who else has mimicked that leg kick against a pillar. You know what I'm talking about.

Tony Jaa has some sick moves.

Gary Busey. He's soo wack in the head that he would be very chaotic to fight against.

Michael Dudikoff because he is the American Ninja.
*note* Steve Jennum practiced ninjitsu and won against Harold Howard as an alternate in UFC 3.

Daniel Craig looks like he could do some damage. Oh wait a minute he's already in the UFC as Dennis Siver sames goes to Jim Carrey for that matter.

Jeff Speakman has two 9th degree belts in karate and something else I believe, some of you might remember him from The Perfect Weapon.

And in a more fantasy world, pretty much all the fighters that got to the quarter finals and beyond in Bloodsport! That giant chinese dude and the monkey guy would have been very interesting in the UFC, not to mention Paco and Ray Jackson! Bolo Yeung surely would have been banned though for salt in the eyes or some other underhand tactic!

My friends dad told me that Lundgren attempted the 100 man kumite. Don't know how he went though.

We are all forgetting one of the greats. Swayze!... Roadhouse. R.I.P

(Anyone feel free to insert a picture of Peter Griffin )

most of those guys in bloodsport were real fighters, aside from Bolo who was just a bodybuilder and Ray Jackson who had played some pro NFL
