    Jackie Chan Speaks on MMA

    Reported on Sherdog

    ďI donít like to see Ultimate Fighting.....As a martial artist, I find it too violent putting them in a cage. At the end, itís not fighting anymore. Thatís not the martial arts. Martial arts is about respect. When somebody is knocked down, stop. I really respect Sugar Ray Leonard. Come on, [when a guy is down] stop. Donít fight. Thatís not the spirit. When youíre down, Iíll grab you up. Are you okay? Should we continue? Thatís the martial arts spirit. Thatís what I want.Ē

    It's just the classic honorable ideals of fighting. Can't really hold it against him. It's those opinions I can respect. All a matter of taste when speaking about competition. It could've been worse. Can you imagine if Jackie said something along the "Too D3adly" argument?

    Sounds like Jackie Chan saying he prefers Sanda/Sanshou/Kickboxing to MMA. Yeah could have been a lot worse he could have mentioned chi.

    Hell, he's not a young guy either, so he might have that certain mindset. If you ask people of an older generation, they'd probably say the same thing, and that anything aside from punching is dirty.

    Not too surprising.

    The massive irony, of course, is that in forcing a fighter to defend themselves immediately after being knocked down, more fights are likely to be stopped more quickly in MMA, thus protecting fighters better. If you have 10 free seconds to recover yourself and stand back up, you can survive much harder shots and stand up to take even more full powered strikes again.

    After watching MMA for years, certain boxing matches just look fucking brutal. A man too badly rocked to adequately defend himself but with just enough balance to stay upright while the other guy tees off on his face, and the referee won't stop it...screaming "double leg! double leg!" at the TV isn't always for irony's sake.

    Theater performer thinks he is more in tune with what martial arts is about than MMA fighters...right.
    You're cool and all Jackie, but you really need to STFU.

    YouTube- Jackie Chan Stuntmaster Interview (Funny Game)

    Watch this from 2:23 onwards, and you will understand his viewpoints, yes, this is the bonus interview from jackie chan stunt master when you finish the game, and a really amazing game at it actually.

    This generation of videogames needs more beat-em-ups and jackies strikes the perfect balance between 3d and sidescroller.

    Back on topic though, he probably views actual MMA as too violent because it looks violent, eventhough as pointed out already, it is safer than boxing.

    It sounds like he's reacting to GnP, in particular, from an ethical point of view. Yes, it's effective; yes, it's also more associated with schoolyard bullying and drunken carpark brawls than with sport. If MMA was restricted to kickboxing + submission wrestling I doubt that Chan (or too many others) would have a serious ethical problem with it.

    This, this, this, this, this. Again, not surprising.

    I think part of it is in the way the sport is portrayed. The cage, the imagery on the apparel, the tough guy audience often found by UFC, etc really contribute to an image more violent than the sport actually is.
