Which MMA athletes participated in the Kevin James film “Here Comes The Boom”?

Published:

Here Comes The Boom, an MMA film starring Kevin James, was published in October 2012. The Grown Ups actor portrayed Scott Voss, a funny biology instructor who once competed at the university level as a respectable wrestler. As the school’s music programme came under threat from cutbacks, James aka Voss made the decision to strap on MMA gloves as a side gig in order to rescue it. In the touching comedy, Kevin James, who started out as an undercard replacement fighter, is supported by the entire school as he rises to become a UFC champion. Former UFC fighters Jason “Mayhem” Miller, Krzysztof Soszynski, Mark Munoz, and Chael Sonnen are among the many MMA stars who appear in the film. Bas Rutten, a former heavyweight champion of the UFC, is James’ important coach.Niko. In addition, cameo appearances were made by other well-known MMA figures such famed Brazilian coach Rafael Cordeiro, UFC colour commentator Joe Rogan, ring announcers Bruce Buffer and Mike Goldberg, referee Herb Dean, and cutman Roberto “Stitch” Duran. Kevin James admittedly absorbed some knocks while filming combat scenes inside the octagon with skilled veterans. I got tagged a lot in the movie, the Hollywood actor claimed during an appearance on The MMA Hour in 2012. To be completely honest, I took a lot of punches. You’re effectively asking these guys, who have spent their entire lives being trained to hit this target and accomplish what they were meant to do, to miss the target by a few inches just before we shoot a scene.

Kevin James claims his MMA co-stars were downright professional actors

Bas Rutten was similar to the first battle Kevin James saw in the film “Here Comes The Boom” in that it was the first one he encountered. James, a fan of Rutten, grew close to the former UFC champion and was introduced to other members of the MMA community by the former champion.

Some of the warriors James encountered were nice, everyday people, and supposedly better performers than typical. James added the following when he appeared on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani:”‘Mayhem’ Miller was outstanding when he made the transition from fighter to actor. They were all. Krzysztof was incredible. I would strike them during the combat scenes, and I would regret it. But, they paid it no attention. Don’t worry about it; I didn’t even feel it. All of them were such experts. Both Chael Sonnen and Mark Munoz were outstanding. They all had a part to play and enjoyed the humour. I adored it because there was no ego involved.”
