5. Bas Rutten


Bas Rutten is still part of MMA in a big way. He often commentates, hosts talk shows and makes podcast appearances. The once UFC champion has also tried his hand at acting and has appeared in a few movies over the past few years. One theme that seems to run with all his movies is actor Kevin James also stars in these films. It’s known that Bas is good friends with Kevin leading to roles in “Here Comes The Boom”, “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”, “Zookeeper” and “Paul Blart Mall Cop 2”.

4. Anderson Silva


Anderson Silva- The Spider

Even casual fight fans will know that Anderson Silva has appeared in NCIS: Los Angeles. However, he also has starred in some movies that not many people know about. The film “Hells Chain” that starred a whole host of fighters past and present had Silva cast as the character King Anaconda, The Villain of Peace. The movie certainly wasn’t a blockbuster as you can see by the IMDB ratings below. Who knows if Anderson Silva will star in another movie!

Roy Nelson’s appearance could see him cast as a variety of characters. Not many people know that Roy has actually already tried his hand at acting. Most notably, he starred in the latest instalment of the Scorpion King movies, The Scorpion King 4: The Quest For Power. Did you recognise Roy in this movie?

Josh Barnett is pretty entertaining on podcast appearances and talk shows, but the UFC superstar has recently landed a role in a movie also starring David Arquette. The film is Chuck Hank and the San Diego Twins which is due to be released in 2016. Josh also starred in the film Absolution alongside actors Steven Segal and British hard man Vinnie Jones. Josh has mentioned on a few occasions that he would like to pursue his movie career more in the coming years.

1.  Uriah Faber

Urijah Faber-The California Kid

Lost in the list of fighters who publicly talk about their acting career, and in at number 1 is none other than Uriah Faber. Uriah starred in the film Reach Me which came out in 2014. It’s is only movie to date and looking at the IMDB ratings, probably his last!
