I shit you not.
"It's the first time in history a guy at 50 will go for a real fight in Macau [China],'" he told gathered media at a news conference in the Ukraine last week. "It's kind of dangerous, but life is short."
If he's serious, it's about to get much shorter. Van Damme says he intends to fight Somluck Kamsing, a Thai boxer with 300-plus bouts to his credit (this according to Van Damme).
Also, for the record, if he does indeed film a reality TV series like the article claims, it will be the best reality TV series since Lawman starring Steven Seagal. It will no doubt grace my television screen on a weekly basis.
Please make this happen.
