“I don’t like to see Ultimate Fighting,” Chan said. “As a martial artist, I find it too violent putting them in a cage. At the end, it’s not fighting anymore. That’s not the martial arts. Martial arts is about respect. When somebody is knocked down, stop. I really respect Sugar Ray Leonard. Come on, [when a guy is down] stop. Don’t fight. That’s not the spirit. When you’re down, I’ll grab you up. Are you okay? Should we continue? That’s the martial arts spirit. That’s what I want.”â†µ
It just doesn't jive with some of Mr. Chan's actions. At the 5:30 mark of this video he clearly attacks a man who he has already knocked down (this coming after setting another man on fire). Then again, I suppose he was drunk.
