Bas Rutten

Bas Rutten is one of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) most respected and feared fighters of all-time, a former three-time King of Pancrase World Champion and UFC Heavyweight Champion. Born and raised in Holland, his devotion to martial arts began after sneaking into a movie screening of Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon. First known as a devastating stand up striker with 11 career wins by knockout, Rutten also dominated with 14 wins by submission and went undefeated in his final 22 fights.

Rutten is now a well-recognized color commentator, actor, television host, coach and entrepreneur. He is also a children's fitness advocate on the Cartoon Network and a participant in the network's highly publicized anti-bullying campaign, as well as a popular host on HDNet's Inside MMA. Rutten previously appeared opposite Kevin James in Paul Blart: Mall Cop and The King of Queens, and most recently in Zookeeper as the voice of Sebastian the Wolf.
