A few years ago actor Jason David Frank was used to hearing the familiar sound of fans yelling, "Go, go Power Rangers!" but now he's ready to hear the roar of a different crowd. The former action star from the hit series "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" has officially made the move to mixed martial arts, and while training with UFC lightweight Melvin Guillard, he hopes to make his real fighting experience as successful as he did on television. Frank signed on with Suckerpunch Entertainment recently and hopes to make his professional debut in the very near future.

It is so funny what ends up happening to some of these childhood stars. I can respect that this dude has chosen this path even though he was a mighty morphin power ranger!

When I was in the Army there was a dude who showed up as a regular PVT in Alpha Company who looked suspiciously like a young Forrest Gump. Sure enough, he was the kid who played young Forrest. Strange as hell.

I'm interested to see how he does. Apparently he's a 6th degree karate BB and has his own style (Toso Kune Do), which is named after some Power Rangers reference.

On his website it says he gave a 9 year old his black belt, and then promoted him to second degree black belt when the kid was 11.

Somehow I doubt he's going to impress us much.
