Bas Rutten on his new show “Punk Payback” and self-defense

The Fight Nerd November 1, 2011 2


The Fight Nerd spoke with Bas Rutten, whose new show on FUEL TV, “Punk Payback” debuts Wednesday, November 2, which is a show that has the former UFC Heavyweight Champ and King of Pancrase breaking down real-life self-defense situations caught on tape, and showing you at home what to do if you were in that situation. We discussed the show at length, explaining what the concept is, how much of the self-defense that Bas shows is improv or scripted (along with the craziness that he says), and what is ahead in Bas’ acting career. We also discuss the real-life implications of some of these scenarios, and what is legal to do if you need to defend yourself.

Stay tuned for part two, when Bas talks some MMA with us, including his thoughts on the demise of Strikeforce, Fedor’s downfall, and his ultimate dream fight!
