Long ago, an eager young newcomer to Angel Grove had a bad run in with some of Rita Repulsa’s cronies. She then used her evil wickedness to transform this fighting freak into an evil version of The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers (sworn defenders of that evil-magnet of a town). Things were crazy for a while, but The Power Rangers managed to sway Tommy Oliver over to their side. He became the Ranger they’d call upon when stuff got to hairy.
As time passed, Tommy eventually used his mastery of the martial arts to lead The Rangers from epic victory, to epic victory, dawning various colored Ranger Suits as he gained experience points. But all of these things pale in comparison to what the future holds for the former “Evil Green Ranger”. Yahoo has announced that Jason David Frank (Tommy’s alter ego) has been in training to be a Mixed Martial Artist.
“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.
“”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.”
Good for you Tommy. It’s high time you turned in your Power Coin, any way, and let the youth of today deal with Zordon’s never ending summonings. Maybe you could pass the torch to somebody that wouldn’t mind wielding that slime covered Dragon Dagger of yours. Someone like Dakota Fanning, perhaps? She already has supernatural powers, the likes of witch the world will never comprehend.
