UFC vs martial arts in General Fitness/Other Sports Posted July 27, 2007 i can't remember where i read it online but it was a biography of jet li. he's legit. he was the national martial arts champ (adult open division) by the time he was 12 i think? out of any actor who does martial arts, chuck norris included, i think jet li could more than hold his own in the ufc. if i can find the link i'll post it. it was amazing to read how he grew up and bascially stopped going to academic school and was made to just train all day everyday as a kid.
