It was supposed to happen somewhere in March 2010. What's the deal here?

After trash talking Hoost, Bonjasky and probably Schilt too for good measure, saying he was training and going to fight in K-1, trash talking some people in the UFC, actually training at a respected gym, then nothing happening for years.

Guess people's care-o-meter just rusted out...

his body must be rusting out too.
damn, he's almost 50.
and just looked up his record on wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Claude_Van_Damme),,,, wow, he really got all those KOs while he was fighting???

He won't do it. He could get crippled. Seriously the guy he's fighting is no joke even at his age. JC pussied out because reality probably finally hit him.

Somluck even with five years out of professional fighting, would still leave JCVD sore and stained on the mat.

He won a Gold Medal for FS.

He should fight Steven Seagal. Steven Seagal said it would be very easy to beat JCVD. JCVD should prove him wrong.

JCVD has definitely backed out? Last I heard, the fight had been moved back to October...

Really? Got a source?

Otherwise I have a suspicion that it was all set up to hype his latest Universal Soldier movie.

FWIW (though I doubt it will ever happen, considering JCVD's track record of changing his mind).

I'll be looking forward to this then. Mainly to compare his performance with the one in the *bom bom BOM* SECRET KUMITE.

Found this on the vandammefan.net forum:

http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/show/jason-priestley-jean-claude-van-damme,1236399.shtml

Jean-Claude Van Damme will be at MIPTV to support the launch of a factual series (8 episodes x 45') produced by Rodin Entertainment and Ah! Production. The series will retrace the actors' martial arts career several months before his fight in November 2010, in Las Vegas.

Sounds as though JCVD wants a piece of Seagal's pie. Well, in the reality TV sense - not his actual pie (which Seagal would never share with anyone).

AFAIK, it's been pushed back to April '11 (just saw this last night, after thinking the same thing as yourself and going looking).

YouTube - Jean-Claude Van Damme vs. Somrak Khamsing - The Real Fight 2010 Info PART.2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CG_7FllEl8c)

These days (well, ever since his breakdown) JCVD seems to take things very much at his own pace. If he decides that he doesn't want to do something, he doesn't do it. Or he postpones it.

I see. By the way, in that picture with Putin, is that Jerome Le Banner sitting left of JCVD?


Also, what breakdown?


Also, they're remaking 'Time Cop', without JCVD...

No JCVD, no Timecop.

Ah, **** it. Make Lundgren the new Timecop.

When I say 'breakdown', I mean the time he realized that the pain he was feeling exceeded his capabilities for coping with pain and that the drink and drugs were hurting, rather than helping. Yaknow, rock bottom, 'can't go on without help' time. Guy has apparently been suffering from bipolar disorder for years.

Well, that's going to be pointless.


Van Damme himself won't be involved. Despite expressing his interest in the project, the action icon "won't be invited back" by Universal, with the studio reportedly opting for "a major star" to headline the remake.

Ouch.
