Former Power Ranger becoming MMA fighter

Tommy Oliver as the Green Power RangerOne of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is about to start fighting bad guys for real, and this time, he won't have a giant robot hybrid to cover his ass.

Jason David Frank, also known as the Green Ranger on the long running children's show, has signed with a sports entertainment company and will soon make his grand debut in mixed martial arts fighting.

Apparently, he's no stranger to scrappin'. According to an interview with his new employer Suckerpunch Entertainment, he's been training in martial arts since he was 12, created his own form of fighting and most notably, wielded the long sought after "Dragon Shield." That should come in handy if his opponent can shoot energy beams.

This is something he's been looking to do for a long time, but has been putting it off because "I know I have a target on my back. Everyone is going to want to beat up the Green Ranger." He's right. Starting with the millions of parents who made them throw away their money for those stupid toys, so they could buy their children's love. Then there are the countless horrible movies they made them sit through. Not to mention the fact that the dumbass theme song is still stuck in my head. The list goes on.

I can't wait for him to be behind in a fight and whip out his dagger/flute and summon the Dragon Zord! This is gonna be epic!

By countless movies you mean... two. I guess that is a difficult number for some people. Also, I think the first film was good for what it was, the second one was definitely an attempt to cash in.

Turbo sucked. The Space rangers season was the best one yet. The best episode was the all red ranger episode.

Gallagher, you really hate the Power Rangers huh? I guess that has more to do with how much money they robbed you of with your pumpkin smashing act in the 90's.

I always liked the green ranger... I read a few years ago that he really was an accomplished karate teacher, so this doesn't surprise me as much as the picture on that Suckerpunch page does. Dude works out pretty often, it seems.
