Ed O’Neill Talks MMA, Can Probably Kick Your Ass

Under normal circumstances, you would have to hold a gun to my head and be incredibly serious about it to get me to watch a 26 minute video about Jiu-Jitsu. I have nothing against the sport or the people who practice it, it’s just that I prefer my martial arts with a little less rolling around on a mat and a little more children/turtles/dogs fighting evil. This is a personal preference, and you will never convince me otherwise.

All that said, I am still going to post this video of Modern Family’s Ed O’Neill talking about MMA and demonstrating some moves, because it’s not every day you get to see the dude who played Al Bundy — who apparently has a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu — proving to the world that he could probably still whup your ass at age 66. That seems important, and I feel I should share it with you in the interest of your safety if nothing else. You are quite welcome.

Seriously, though, it could use, like, WAY more surfing.
