Power Ranger Wins MMA Debut Despite Complete Lack of Spandex Unitard


(Fight starts at the 2:37 mark. Everything before that is really, really annoying.)

Former Power Ranger Jason David Frank made his MMA debut in Houston, Texas this weekend, where he faced Jonathan Mack in the main event of the Lonestar Beatdown.  Mack seemed to be getting the upper hand early on and even wobbled Frank with a good left hook.  Where he went it wrong, it seems, is in taking the fight to the mat after doing so well on the feet.  It didn’t take long for Frank to lock up an omaplata and wrench it until the ref had to literally shove him off his opponent.  Not terribly sportsmanlike behavior from the guy who’s responsible for the Jesus Didn’t Tap clothing line, but hey, there’s a reason the company isn’t called Jesus Stopped Immediately After You Tapped.

After the jump, Frank breaks down his own performance in a post-fight video interview.  If, like us, you were hoping that everything he says would be as badly dubbed as the Power Ranger TV shows, get ready to be disappointed.

@ letme...

The S, the T, the F and the U are spread around the keyboard pretty haphazardly, dude.

"I can't stand screaming stupid bitches in MMA videos...makes me fucking nuts! "

This.

It's even worse at live events. Women shouldn't be allowed in unless they are wearing bikinis.

Did him and Kimberly ever get married? Also, if he has a few more fights that he wins, I think a Strikeforce signing would be perfect.

I had no idea he was all tattoo'd up and that big! What weight class is he fighting at? Looks like 205 or so. Oh and that black guy is a dumb ass. He caught him and did nothing. Serves him right.

@ Ed M.

THE L AND Z ARE ON OPPOSITE ENDS OF THE KEYBOARD DUDE. Unless you were making a Power Ranger joke and it that case you fail. Go see the guy who talked bad about Jesus. He has a 2x4 and some nails for ya.

I guess what some people don't understand is omaplatas aren't something you can just easily 'let go' and shoving someone to break the hold is one of the dumber ways to go about it, won't help prevent dislocating any shoulders.

Sho Nuff's comment is money.

Maybe if he pulled out his flute and summoned the Dragon-Zord he wouldn't have had to take any damage.

But seriously, Tomm-- I mean Jason did a solid job against a bigger opponent. The omoplata used to win was applied very nicely plus he seems to have relatively good standup. He does look rather road-hard though with all the tats and stuff but I'd like to see him in another bout. Future Strikeforce signing perhaps? It would definitely get them ratings...

@vrane
I was appalled.

Why did he not come out to the Power Rangers' theme song?
LargeMidget- February 1, 2010 at 1:51 pm
I godda say I'm pretty pleased that he won. I loved the power rangers when I was younger. He wouldn't look so old and ugly if he hadn't just been in a fight.

Go go power rangers!
rlh61- February 1, 2010 at 1:47 pm
@Sho Nuff - that was some funny shit...it might get you a one way ticket to hell, but funny shit none the less.

@Leonard Bernstein

I was once a 7 year-old child so yes, I watched Power Rangers. And X-Men and the Batman/Superman adventures and Dragonball. Man, TV ain't what it used to be...

Well done.

i kept waiting for him to morph into the red ranger...

Damn, Tommy hasn't aged very well. Looks like he has had alcohol problems.
NateGetsIrate- February 1, 2010 at 12:57 pm
I guess it's cool that he stepped into the ring and all, but seriously, he lucked out. He was lucky that he didn't fight anyone with at least some slight amount of killer instinct cuz he was one jab away taking a nap.

Dude I expected him to come out to the Power Rangers theme music. That would have a been pretty awesome actually. I'll give him credit where credit is due though, it may have only been a small show and he wasn't the epitome of a technical fighter, but he did well. He got rocked and kept coming, he showed some at least ok stand up and his omaplata was seamless. All jokes aside he actually put on a good solid performance. At least he didn't start the fight saying "It's morphin time!".
