Myanma Lethwei Champion Dave Leduc shared his Lethwei experiments plus memories with Dutch–American actor Bas Rutten, a retired mixed martial artist, kickboxer and professional wrestler yesterday at Bas Rutten’s Gym in California, the United States.
During their meeting, the two fighters made their pieces of training together and also shared their fighting experiences.
Dave Leduc has expressed his cheerfulness after meeting with the American star on his social media.
“I love martial arts for making moments like these happen. I went to see Bas Rutten at his gym in California. He’s a real OG of Mixed Martial arts. He finished his career on top like a true champ with 22 fights unbeaten streak,” Dave said.
Lethwei icon Dave Leduc also expressed his great respect for the American actor-cum-fighter.
“You’re a fighting, Icon Bas. You’ll always have my respect. We have many things in common, we both fought with Bareknuckle in Japan and we love headbutts. Bas told me he would’ve loved to fight Lethwei if he had the chance back in the days!
“It’s a true honour to call you a friend, pick your brain and hear your crazy stories. Train insane or remain the same!
“This is a mental drill I like to do sometimes to build intensity. You feel alive after this! Makes you focus, trains you to not be afraid, and builds mental toughness,” Dave Leduc said.
Bas Rutten was also a UFC Heavyweight Champion, a three-time King of Pancrase world champion, and finished his career on a 22 fight unbeaten streak (21 wins, and 1 draw).—GNLM
