Wme In Clinches With Mma’s Bas Rutten

10 October 2012 2:48 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Wme has signed Bas Rutten, the mixed martial arts champion who co-stars with Kevin James in the Sony Pictures comedy Here Comes The Boom. He collaborates frequently with James, previously appearing in Paul Blart: Mall Cop and lending his voice to the cast of Zookeeper. Now, like James, he is in the Wme and Jeff Sussman Management fold. Rutten is currently the co-host of the weekly Inside Mma program on Axs TV and has provided color commentary for several fight organizations including the former Pride Fighting Championships. He knows the subject matter: Rutten is a former three-time King of Pancrase World Champion and Ufc Heavyweight Champion. He evolved from a devastating stand up striker who dropped 11 opponents by knockout and then became as dominant in ground fighting, winning 14 bouts by submission. He was undefeated in his final 22 fights. »
