March 2010 is going to be an awesome time to be in Vegas because that’s when famed actor Jean-Claude van Damme is due to fight Thai Olympic gold-medalist boxer Somluck Kamsing in a Muay Thai MMA fight. Kamsing confirmed the fight will be taking place, it will consist of 5 two-minute rounds.
Because he’s an actor and depends on his face, JCVD requested that the use of elbows be banned for the fight. Kamsing told Siamsport that JCVD didn’t want to get his face cut or bruised.
Of course, prior to being a woldwide “acting” sensation, JCVD was highly trained in martial arts. And of course, he won the tournament in Bloodsport despite being blinded. So, watch out Kamsing!
