I used to study his fights from the early days in Pancrase Japan, Pride, and the UFC. Bas was a battle hardened Champion.
The fact that I was chosen as his stunt double was a great honor.
It was a HARDCORE day on the movie set, but by the end Bas had personally approved all the stunt scenes I performed in his place. VICTORY!!!
Amazing Zombie make up job on me! A brutal hallway scene, I literally became a Zombie Bas Rutten!!
