MMA in movies/T.V

I don't mean the lame MMA movies like "Unrivalled" with that Argentinian guy, but has anyone else noticed that some movies/T.V have started incorporating MMA/BJJ techniques into them?
  • In the new Bruce Willis film RED, he gets a guy in an omoplata and pops his shoulder out.
  • MMA is breifly mentioned in Iron Man 2.
  • In Inception Eames gets a guy in a Ezekiel Choke?? (in mid air might I add).
  • In Entourage; I once saw Drama working out hitting stuff,with MMA gloves on (either pads or a heavy bag, I can't remember) and a seperate episode was all about Chuck Liddell kicking his ass.

There are probably others I haven't noticed/forgot.

Dunno if I'm maybe looking into things waaaaay too much, but is this possibly a testament to the growth of MMA that it is breaking into the mainstream like this?

I have noticed more ground fighting in action movies now but i think it's just because i'm doing BJJ and recognize stuff that i didn't before.

I don't know if I am just noticing it more when it happens but that was 3 major block busters in 7 or so months and a primetime series.

I mean I get there are going to be minor references here and there and cameos but to see Bruce Willis do an omoplata and that guy from inception do an Ezekiel choke got me wondering, since they are pretty big movies."

i'm surprised that it is not more common. i mean mma is big! so why has it taken so long for movies to start incorporating it?

You know I've seen that film loads of times, but not since I got into MMA, that's was epic! Thanks for that!

Gibson could have at least done the triangle right to make it truly epic.

Andrei Arlovski uses a mounted triangle to rain GnP and eventually choke a guy to death in the new Universal Solder movie.

I think in the fourth Fast and the Furious Paul Walker had Vin Diesel in a armbar/triangle choke!

Edit: Okay, it was just an armbar...
