30 Day MMA Challenge: Day 24 If you could have someone watch your back in a bar fight (or movie theater) depending on your age, who would it be?
Hands down. The guy has been in a ton of street fights, he retired with a 22 fight win streak that spanned across Pancrase, UFC and WFA (including both Pancrase and UFC championships). He’s probably been in more street fights than professional fights, he even has a DVD out called Bas Ruttens Street Fighting (11 parts on YouTube if interested). He might come off as crazy but he knows his stuff and it actually works (yes I have used some of the stuff he has shown). Street fighting is much different than professional MMA, and if anyone knows how to kick ass in a bar it’s Bas.
30 Day MMA Challenge: Day 9 Favorite Commentator
Bas Rutten was an excellent color commentator for PRIDE FC, he knew the sport because he was a fighter, not only that but a champion in both Pancrase and UFC. He made commentating a bit funny too, his accent, how he would react on replays and comment on what fighters should or shouldn’t do, or how he got excited when someone did something awesome. I really liked his style, and yes I think Joe Rogan is great but if they replaced Mike Goldberg with Bas Rutten I think it would be perfect (because Goldberg doesn’t really do anything it’s mostly Joe Rogan).
