This is on top of numerous accusations of stolen valor from multiple journalists.

* SocietyMarchesOn: At the time the movie was filmed, the idea of martial arts tournaments of various styles beating each other up for rich audiences sounded completely insane if you weren't talking about VideoGame/StreetFighter. Nowadays, the MMA and UFC have pretty much made it a popular public, if not professional, sport.
