Question Jet Li vs Tony Jaa

Now wouldn't it be cool to have Jet Li and Tony Jaa in the same movie?!?
I think that would be awesome, they're both really good but who do you think would emerge the victor in a match???

Re: Jet Li vs Tony Jaa

Dude, what a poll!!! I think I'm going to have to say...argh I dunno! Being a kickboxer I'm inclined to say Tony Jaa, whose style is a bit more high impact, but I love Jet Li, great films from him.

Re: Jet Li vs Tony Jaa

well jet li is no longer in his prime, so right now it'd be tony. but if we were comparing them in their prime, that would be tough because jet li was china's national wushu champion at one point.

Re: Jet Li vs Tony Jaa

I went ahead and voted for Tony...but...I don't know, that would be an insane match. I mean Jet Li called Tiger's Claw "cat's paw" hehehe...which was hilarious, but come on man...Tony Jaa can do a stationary jump like 6 feet in the air and he can completely clear a car while running...as demonstrated in Tom Yun Goong (a.k.a. The Protector). And even the practice stuff he was doing in that movie...jumping on the elephant's tusks and climbing around the tree like a rabid squirrel, it's just about super human! They're the Vai and Satriani of martial arts :P.

Being in your prime doesn't really count for a true Martial artist, what really matters is the amount of skill and experience you have under your belt.
Tony Jaa is magnificent but all he knows is Muay Thai whereas Jet Li seems to be versed in several styles even boxing, also experience and technique are on his side since he has been practicing martial arts far longer than Tony Jaa, however I think it would be the match of the century!!!

He does do insane kicks!!! some that I hadn't even seen before but kicks alone and anger won't give you a victory against a champion like Jet Li, because as someone already pointed out he is not all movies he was the wushu Champion in China and that is something to be reckoned with.
