    We'll kick off the list with a video that many people out there have likely seen.

    Rutten must have taken a play out of his own playbook, as he talks on Inside MMA about a street fight he was involved in.

    Rutten took home his arm, his leg, his neck and his pants.

    I suppose his dignity went home with Bas as well.

    Dream big, kids.

Bas Rutten Is Mad

    One of my personal favorites features Bas Rutten raging, although it is not true rage. He is promoting a movie called The Perfect Sleep.

    The movie is about "a tortured man returns to the city he swore he would never return to, in order to save the woman he has always loved yet can never have."

    If Bas is raging that hard to promote that movie, I can only imagine what he would have done if he were promoting a badass action movie like 300.

Bas Rutten on Jerry Springer

    I want to know who this employee pissed off to have to get beat up by Bas.

    Although, we are all smarter for having watched this video, as we were taught a quick and efficient way to clean off the bar.

    They neglected to show the rest of that clip, at which point Bas got up and sent Randy flying out of the arena with a liver kick.
