A few years ago actor Jason David Frank was used to hearing the familiar sound of fans yelling, “Go, go Power Rangers!” but now he's ready to hear the roar of a different crowd.
The former action star from the hit series “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” has officially made the move to mixed martial arts, and while training with UFC lightweight Melvin Guillard, he hopes to make his real fighting experience as successful as he did on television.
Frank signed on with Suckerpunch Entertainment recently and hopes to make his professional debut in the very near future.
“I was supposed to fight in 2007, but it fell through. In truth, I've wanted to put the work in until I'm ready,” Frank said in an interview from the Suckerpunch website. “I know I have a target on my back. Everyone is going to want to beat up the Green Ranger. But I am no Kimbo; I've been training for a very long time. I wanted to get in there before, but I got injured. But I'll be ready when the time comes.”
