You shouldn't take that too serious. As I understood, Kantowrestler just had a fun thought experiment. Mixing up a little bit of the athletic skills of the actors and what's to be seen in their movies. It's not for a real consideration, but just for fun. Relax.

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.
Statham should be higher he's a legit bad ass. Also, where is Cynthia Rothrock? Id have rated her over Jolie. Also, Philip Ree and Eric Roberts from Best of the Best? How about Ralph Macchio of Karate Kid fame? God list and idea though.
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.
Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.
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!
