Chinese MMA Fighter Absolutely Destroys Tai Chi Master In 20 Seconds

Chinese MMA Fighter Absolutely Destroys Tai Chi Master In 20 Seconds

The only time I've seen Tai Chi is usually in parks where groups of people move incredibly slowly as a form of exercise and meditation.

So, I was surprised to hear that someone specialising in the practice would ever want to face off against an mixed martial arts fighter.

Well that's exactly what happened after a petty school yard argument.

The feud started when Tai Chi master Wei Lei posted the personal contact information about the self-taught MMA fighter Xu Xiaodong.


Xu was pretty pissed and hit back by saying the traditional forms of Chinese martial arts are outdated and don't work in real combat. So Wei told Xu to put his money where his mouth is. The two got together in Chengdu, Sichuan province, to see whose practice was better.

It was all over in 20 seconds. Xu goes full HAM and unleashes a volley of punches, which knocked over the frail looking Wei. Even when he was on the floor, Xu kept pummelling him until the referee called time.

In my humble opinion, it didn't even look like a fair fight. Wei just got the living shit beaten out of him until it was stopped.

I was really hoping for some Bruce Lee shit to unfold.


Shao Shiwei, former deputy director of the Martial Arts Sports Management Center of General Administration of Sports, told China Daily: "It was just a childish fight between two unfit amateurs and has nothing to do with the honour of MMA or traditional martial arts. It means nothing, no matter who wins."

But the win has only egged Xu on. He wants to take on anyone who practices other types of traditional martial arts. One user on Twitter wants Xu to battle this Shaolin fighting Monk:


Xu is offering 1.2 million yuan (£135,078) as prize money to whoever can defeat him. The China Daily says several Tai Chi practitioners have taken Xu up on his offer.
