^^ i second that. also where, when and what promotion is this fight happening with and how can i watch it. gimme some details CP, u cant just tell me JCVD is fighting and not say anything about it
RwilsonR- November 17, 2010 at 12:37 pm
J-Dog - In all seriousness, where can I find out more about that record of his? Is there any tape on it? I would love to see a young JCVD knocking some poor dude out.
J-Dog- November 17, 2010 at 11:49 am
Those who think JCVD is a fake or just an actor should consider his 20-2 full contact record with 20 of 20 wins by KO. At least back in the day he could certainly throw down for real. At age 50 it may be a different story. Anyway, props to him for going for it at such a ripe old age.

@RwilsonR: I bow to your gung fu, Sifu. Damned funny shit, bro'. I still hope he ends up ok.

@ Viva - I think you're confused. That isn't what is going to happen at all given JCVD's opponent. In this case, JCVD is much more likely to watch his brother get severely injured, possibly paralyzed in a fight with Khamsing, and then try to avenge his brother's loss out of anger. However, he will realize before the fight that he is no match for Khamsing in his current state, but will be taken under the wing of a wise old muay thai master. Intense training in the jungle for two weeks will apparently teach him enough to beat Khamsing, who has been training for this his whole life. As for the actual fight, I imagine that it might take JCVD some time to acclimate to fighting with broken glass on his hands, and he will likely get a few rather nasty looking cuts. But he should finish strong, and I'm willing to bet he takes this one with some nice jump-splits kicks.

...so the secret training of Rampage is to not use deodorant anymore.
Isn't chemical warfare forbidden by the Geneva Convention?

JCVD fight will surely go as follows, it will go back and forth for a few moments but JCVD will get the upper hand until Somrak Khamsing blinds him with a handful of quicklime. JCVD will then struggle but go back to his training where he learned to fight blind. JCVD will then beat down Khamsing and force him to say "matte."

LA Times and Soldier of Fortune will then reveal that the whole thing was fake.

Rampage's gameplan - take a knee so he cant kick you in the face.

That Aleks video was more shocking than that video Rogan told me to watch of a man getting fucked to death by a horse.

I keep hoping that Rampage is going to change things up a bit, you know throw a leg kick or two,...seeing someone step in the cage to spar with him that's wearing a pair of Thai shorts is promising,....but we'll see I guess.

JCVD, sorry dude your going to get your Belgian Ass kicked.....props for stepping in the ring at your age tho. I look for JCVD to break down after the loss and cry like a 13 year old girl who just lost her first boyfriend after this stoppage.

@Jdog

Especially since her last loss was a title fight.

Way to keep it classy, Strikeforce.


And @Rex13 is right, she'll be fine. There is enough in the way of fights for her in Japan I'm sure, arguably an environment more suited to her grapple heavy style anyways.

Fried Taco >>  i realize that i'm supposed to think Van Damme is a fraud and a loser, but i just can't do it.  I wish i could quit you, JCVD.And yeah, pretty surprised about Roxy getting dropped, although at this point SF doing something stupid shouldn't surprise anyone.  But i trust she'll land on her feet--she's got to be one of the most well-liked female fighters out there.  Only fighter i know of that regularly opens a chat room to talk to fans. 
J-Dog- November 17, 2010 at 6:16 am
JCVD is gonna fight for real??!! Sweet!

That sucks that Roxanne got cut from SF. I'm really surprised, since good female fighters are hard to come by and her two losses were to big names.
Fried Taco- November 17, 2010 at 6:14 am
@ReX13 - I disagree. Made obvious by the JCVD link, this site sucks. And sucking is what it's all about!
ReX13- November 17, 2010 at 6:06 am
You guys misspelled "Alien" in the BJ Penn link.  Jesus, this site has really gone to shit ever since i showed up.
