OK there was that recent movie that was basicly an MMA movie.. But can anyone recall any other movies that someone either used MMA style of fighting or was doing any Training that was obviously MMA...

Mr and Mrs SMith comes to mind.. In the begining Brad Pitt is doing MMA training. Can anyone think of other movies?

A guy pulled off a flying ambar on one episode of Stargate SG1.
Ken Shamrock was in a movie called "Champions" back in the day,but I really don't know how much "MMA" was used in it.

And of course "Lethal Weapon".
Rorion Gracie was the fight choregrpaher (or something along those lines) for the movie,and Mel Gibson defeats Gary Busey with a triangle choke in the final fight scene.

There's a few Asian movies that have MMA in them. Donnie Yen has made a few movies that have quite a bit of MMA in them. SPL is one of them, Flashpoint is another.

Couple action scenes from SPL, skip to the fight with the fat guy for MMA part:

There is a horrible movie called "Honor"with both Rorion and his son Rener. Rorion has a decent size part playing the buddy of "Raudy" Roddy Piper. They use some BJJ in the fight scenes.

Yeah I think it's easy to forget just because they put it in their in a very subtle way.Bet back when that movie came out their were a lot of people scratching their heads,wondering what just happened.
