Remembering Jason David Frank and the time he almost got into a fight with Jean-Claude Van Damme

As fans mourn the loss of everyone’s sweetheart Power Ranger, it is also a time to celebrate the life of Jason David Frank. While his fame is rooted in his days as a Green Ranger, he’s also had his share of notable off-camera moments. Like when he almost fought Jean-Claude Van Damme at a comic con.

Five years ago it was a battle of initials: JDF versus JCVD. The two were guests at La Mole Comic Con in Mexico City when an altercation broke out.

The short version of the story, according to Frank via FloCombat, was that he had challenged his former idol to a fight years earlier when JCVD ​​was apparently talking about joining the professional MMA ranks. Then, at Comic Con 2017, the two finally met face to face, and sparks flew. Although no punches were thrown, it made for great headlines and a lot of betting between the two actors’ fans.

JCVD isn’t the only celebrity Frank wanted to meet in the octagon. If Phil Brooks – aka professional wrestler cm punk – left the sports entertainment world to try his hand at martial arts, JDF was ready to pack up. As fans know, Frank is well versed in mixed martial arts, having mastered multiple combat techniques over the course of his decades of training. He even competed in amateur MMA fights, posting a 4-0 record in his short-lived combat stint. Brooks would turn down Frank’s challenge, but we’ll always wonder what would have been.

It doesn’t stop there. Over a decade ago there was talk of him dating an athlete-turned-politician Herschel Walker. After turning pro in 2010, Frank wanted to join professional MMA promotion Strikeforce. At the time, Walker had made his mixed martial arts debut at the age of 47. Of course, JDF was ready to take on his famous colleague.

In the end, none of the celebrity-on-celebrity violence happened, but the potential is enough to keep us wondering, what if…? Remembering Jason David Frank and the time he almost got into a fight with Jean-Claude Van Damme
