If a movie was made about a fighter in the UFC, who would be the actor to play that fighter?
This was a question that was posed to me, interested me, and I was intrigued to find out.
Before embarking on a quest to find the actors that could play the fighter in question, I had to set some guidelines and criteria.
One of my criteria was that the actor has to bear some physical resemblance to the fighter. I mean, it wouldn't make sense if Danny DeVito was cast to play Jose Aldo would it?
Next, I decided that the fighter needed to have an interesting enough life story for it to be made into a movie.
However, the problem with this, is that some of the more intriguing stories of fighters did not have anyone that bore any resemblance to the fighter. If I just picked any actor to portray any fighter, there would be no need for this slideshow.
With these factors and more in mind, I set off to find the actors that would play the fighters if a movie was made about them.
Bear in mind, this is a light hearted piece.
So without further ado, here are the actors I have selected that could potentially portray fighters, if movies were made about them.
