An Action Icon Was Challenged To A Real-Life Fight By Van Damme

The Nineties have been a tumultuous decade. Invoice Clinton was within the White Home, the Spice Ladies have been on the unfastened, and Jean-Claude Van Damme was allegedly trying to combat individuals at events.
No less than, that’s what Sylvester Stallone, one other nice action movie star, says. In line with the actor of Cliffhanger and Demolition Man, he organised a celebration for Van Damme and one other action hero, Aikido specialist Steven Seagal, in 1997. Van Damme turned enraged later within the night and challenged Seagal to a one-on-one battle in Stallone’s backyard.
In line with studies, Van Damme turned enraged when he realized that Seagal had been encouraging those that he may combat the Bloodsport actor. Whereas this feels like one thing you’d anticipate from a bunch of 14-year-old lads excessive on Jolt Soda, it seems that’s precisely what occurred.
However the story didn’t finish there. Whereas Stallone claims that Steven Seagal made excuses and fled the social gathering, Jean-Claude Van Damme pursued him and demanded a combat. Stallone went on to say that he was assured Van Damme would win and that Seagal was lower than the problem.
All of that is Hollywood legend, however there’s no purpose to consider Stallone is making it up. Seagal is well-known for saying usually and loudly that he can beat any fighter, together with Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris. He was so well-known for denigrating different martial artists {that a} group of well-known kickboxers and karate champions bought collectively to problem the Underneath Siege actor to a combat.
Seagal by no means answered to any of their challenges, regardless of his assertions. Whereas we gained’t identify names, Van Damme has a public document of dozens of victories in each full-contact and semi-contact martial arts competitions, however Seagal…hasn’t.

Jean-Claude Van Damme, for his half, was infamous for his erratic conduct and (in response to him) conceitedness on the time. His extensively acknowledged drug misuse difficulties peaked round that point within the Nineties, and it’s possible that neither Van Damme nor Seagal got here throughout effectively throughout their conferences at Stallone’s social gathering. After all, Van Damme is alleged to have damaged into Stallone’s house in an effort to meet the action icon, so the Rambo star appears to be high quality with such conduct.
Each Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal’s fame has waned since their Nineties peak. Each have grow to be hallmarks of direct-to-DVD action flicks (which, hey, is figure) in current a long time. Van Damme has grown notably philosophical and self-aware of his prior occupation and actions, and has performed a modernised, broken-down model of himself in lots of movies, together with the critically acclaimed JCVD.
With subsequent yr’s What’s My Identify?, by which he’ll painting an amnesiac model of himself going through copies of his prior legendary battles, he has proclaimed his retirement from action movies. Since 2016, Seagal has been a Russian Federation citizen, and he has been outspoken in his assist for Putin’s regime.
