This Is CineMMA, ‘Blood and Bone’: Could Michael Jai White be a UFC champion?

Michael Jai White has the skills, but does he have the grit to survive the mean streets of Blood and Bone?

On this episode of This is CineMMA, the MMA Fighting movie review crew break out of the clink to follow the adventures of Bone (White), a man on a mission who batters and bruises his way through L.A.’s underground fight scene while crossing paths with real-life combat sports stars Kimbo Slice, Gina Carano, and Bob Sapp. Featuring plenty of bloody battle —and some very, very NSFW language — this one ain’t for the faint of heart.

Alexander K. Lee, Jed Meshew, and E. Casey Leydon channel their inner “Just Bleed Guy” as they marvel at White’s dazzling martial arts skills, pick out some of the nastiest looking moves in the movie, and try to make heads or tails of some truly befuddling dialogue choices.

How would Bone fare in the UFC? Is Eamonn Walker a better villain than Conor McGregor? And is it really possible to jump in the air and kick four people at once?

Dig into Blood and Bone with us for the answers to these questions and more.
