The MMA Fighter On A Mission To Expose “Fake Martial Artists” in China (HBO)

The fight ended before it even began. Police in China swept in and detained controversial Chinese mixed martial arts fighter Xu Xiaodong minutes before his scheduled comeback fight against a Tai Chi master.

The planned fight came just weeks after video of Xu brutally flattening a Tai Chi master went viral – a fight that lasted just about 10 seconds, prompting massive backlash that forced Xu into hiding. Xu, an outspoken self-promoter, has claimed he is on a mission to expose fake masters of traditional martial arts.

VICE News met with Xu at his gym in Beijing earlier this month when he was still preparing for the scheduled battle that ended up not happening.

  1. Well I understand his point, but still it would have being better if he just submited his opponent, you know he would get a better image. Public opinion is everything when you try to expose fraud.

  2. This is how stupid these mma nut bags are. The words "MARTIAL ARTS" is in MMA. So saying martial arts is fake is also saying Mixed Martial arts is also fake hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Go eat more steroids you mixed martial artist nut bags.

  3. Tbf there is no right or wrong, the main purpose of learning any martial art is to keep yourselves healthy, not for VIOLENCE. So I think every single types of martial arts in the world are all useful.

  4. SJW interviewer with the baby Don King hair doesn't understand fighting until declared the winner. He thinks the guys should have stopped before the fight ended.
