Jean-Claude Van Damme Wants a Pro Fight: Thanks Geritol

“Kumite Express leaves in five minutes!”

At the age of 49, Jean Claude Van Damme (yes—the high-powered action movie star) has expressed a sincere interest in setting up a professional kickboxing fight in a regulated K-1 bout against Somluck Kamsing, a 35-year-old former Olympic boxing gold medalist, in March of this year.



Are you starting to sense an up-and-coming trend, fight fans?

“You always told me to keep an open mind!”—Frank Dux, Bloodsport

Sure, Randy Couture is 46 years of age, and Mark Coleman is 45, but can they do the splits between two chairs?

I think not.

“The Muscles from Brussels” has been studying martial arts since the age of 10.

At the age of 16, Van Damme took up ballet, which he then studied for several years. In hindsight, Van Damme describes his ballet experience as being “one of the most difficult sports” to train for.

“If you can survive a ballet workout, you can survive a workout in any other sport.”

Kinda makes Herschel Walker’s comments about mixed-martial arts as being “the most difficult thing that [he] has ever done,” seem a bit ridiculous.

Obviously, Walker had never tried ballet.

And please don’t take what I’m saying as being sarcastic. Ballet is a beautiful, graceful, and incredibly precise form of physical and artistic expression.

Just the thought of Van Damme landing a roundhouse pirouette upside Kamsing’s noggin is enough to give me goose bumps all over my naked, sweaty body.


Nice, eh?

I would wish Van Damme all the best of luck, but the truth is, he doesn’t need it. He has the memory and experience of his 18 amateur fights (from over 30 years ago) to draw from.

Clearly, the Olympic boxing champion stands no chance.

I hope he does well, but, odds are he wont. He is an old actor. Sure, he may have a solid backing in Kick boxing, but going against such a solid fighter its not worth watching.

Yeah ill just ignore those last to sentences u left....

But i wish him well... Ballet wont do shit against a tap dancing boxer.....

God some people do some gay shit

You guys think you know everything, it's ALL speculation, none of you have a god damn idea how he will do, no one knows how anyone will do, and to the TS, that sarcasm is a sign of direct disrespect to JCVD and fighter bashing, even if you did copy and paste it directly from someone else's thread. Plagiarizing ,(copying someone elses writing without the proper credit given, a shortened link at the bottom doesn't count, even if the post you stole was retarded and stupid) but you did post it here so take responsibility. This is disrespect and should be taken as fighter bashing, I'd say a ban is in order.
