** Janice even lampshaded it to Jackson that Frank doing that to Chong Li was worse than just defeating him.

* CruelMercy: Rather than kill him, Frank makes Chong Li say Matte. No fighter before Dux was able to beat him, but making him pretty much say uncle was especially humiliating. Frank was even prepared to snap his neck for refusing.

'''''Bloodsport''''' is a 1988 martial arts action film starring Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme. The inspiration comes from martial artist Frank Dux, who [[BasedOnAGreatBigLie claims]] to have entered a secret and deadly martial arts tournament in the Philippines called the Kumite. Dux's story is widely suspected of being a hoax, as no part of it has ever been confirmed, and some claims are outright impossible.

* ActorAllusion: Bolo Yeung is readily identified as an opponent of BruceLee in ''Film/EnterTheDragon'', here as the BigBad many of his lines come almost directly from that movie. [[ShoutOut "Impressive, but brick not hit back."]]



* OldShame: Why yes, "Bumbling Government Agent #2" is Oscar-winner Creator/ForestWhitaker.



* TechnologyMarchesOn: Time was not kind to you, ''KarateChamp''.

* BadassGrandpa: RealLife example; Bolo Yeung was in his 40s in this movie.

* BasedOnAGreatBigLie: The film is based on Dux's claims of winning the kumite, but there is no evidence that Dux fought in a Kumite or that it ever existed in the first place. Many aspects of Dux's story have been debunked or shown to be outright impossible.

* CurbStompBattle: For an invitation-only tournament of the world's top fighters, most matches are surprisingly short. This is especially amusing when Chong Li breaks his previous record with a 16-second KO, only to have Dux come right along and do it in 14.
