The TERRIFYING Tale Of Xu Xiaodong China’s Most hated MMA Fighter
Here’s the full story of Xu Xiaodong, from humble mma fighter to being the most hated mma fighter in china, all for exposing fake martial arts masters.

TotallyPointlessTV:

Xu Xiaodong aka the ‘mad dog’ is one of China’s most prolific and well-known MMA fighters. Despite being one of the forefathers of bringing MMA to China, he’s also one of the most hated and disrespected MMA fighters in Chinese history.

TotallyPointlessTV:

Now I talked about in my previous fake martial arts being exposed but I didn’t actually realize the extent to how far this guy’s history goes. There is so much to this guy’s life it’s just unbelievable; from censorship to lowering his class to a low-class citizen just for trying to prove these people of fakers and taking advantage of people.

TotallyPointlessTV:

Xu was born November 15 1979 in Beijing. He had an average childhood- nothing too crazy. Then in 1996, he entered the Beijing Sport School where he trained in the art of Sansho which is essentially Chinese boxing or Chinese kickboxing- it’s a full contact sport; pretty intense stuff. He beat twice during this phase of his life in the Beijing Invitational Tournament finishing as the champion in one and first runner-up respectively.

TotallyPointlessTV:

So, you have to know even from an early stage he was a good fighter and he had a knack for it- which is clear to see to anyone. Though it was a notion till 2001 when Xu began training for mixed martial arts and Muay Thai- combination of the two. He was drawn back to the start because of how free it was apparently.

TotallyPointlessTV:

A year later he formed his first MMA team in Beijing which was at the time, one of the only mixed martial arts in China. China very traditional, so many believe in the old style of things whatsoever. MMA hadn’t quite penetrated the market yet but Xu really saw a place for it and believed that it was the most efficient and modern form of fighting because it was a combination of pretty much the most efficient forms of fighting.

TotallyPointlessTV:

Now when he was training on this and he was sort of taking a look around the environment and he felt angry, apparently, and frustrated by the amount of fake martial arts practitioners out there. He saw loads of people taking advantage stealing money and just essentially being shit people while portraying themselves as almost godlike beings.

TotallyPointlessTV:

So, he wanted to demonstrate the superiority of MMA- the modern fighting style no-bullshit-no show tactics just straight-up MMA. In 2017, he had his first real famous fight. This is what skyrocketed him to fame it’s what you will all probably recognize him for you. He got into an argument on social media with her Mr. Wei. Wei was challenged by Xu to prove that these martial arts are real or superior to the MMA. This ended up in a bare-knuckle fight in the basement in 2007 and Xu won in a matter of seconds- less than 20 seconds- absolutely beating the living daylights out of this old guy.

TotallyPointlessTV:

You know it is bit of justice served. This dude gets his ass handed to him; he’s been lying to people and is so full of his own crappy believes. You’d watch the video and be pretty satisfied that that’s the end of it. Well, that’s actually not the case. After the video went viral the Chinese government and officials and higher-ups were actually incredibly pissed off by this video because they thought it was disparaging Chinese culture. That led to him receiving death threats to his family, to himself and even the beverage tycoon Chen Sheng offered over a million US dollars to any traditional fighter that could beat him up.

TotallyPointlessTV:

I mean, that really just sours my mouth to think that some multi billionaire would sit around and offer to pay people just to try and prove that they’re better than him. He straight out attacking and this dude, he’s some evil corporation leader. Who the fuck has enough time to try and pay people to fight someone? It’s like his dad works at Microsoft. It’s pretty sickening. Anyways, Xu continued to fight self-proclaimed Qi masters and he has a lot of success. There’s lots of videos out there online.

TotallyPointlessTV:

In 2019, Xu was sued by a Tai Chi Grand Master, Shen as Xu called him a fraud. He basically said “look you’re a fraud, you can’t beat me up in a fight and I can prove it”. Chen was naturally quite offended by this but rather than taking him up on the offer to fight, he actually sued him. The government ordered Xu to pay sixty thousand US dollars in damages and apologized for seven consecutive days on social media. In addition to this, his social credit rating was lowered to the point where he couldn’t rent, own property, stay in certain hotels or even travel on high-speed rail and buy plane tickets.

TotallyPointlessTV:

Now at the risk of sounding ignorant, I wasn’t aware the extent to how the social credit rating system in China worked. I didn’t even know existed until I started looking this guy up. For those of you that are unaware, since 2009, a new system was put in place in China where anyone’s ability to interact with the world around them is essentially rated by their class and if it drops low enough, they can’t get on planes, they can’t get on trains and they have to just kind of sit there and essentially just never get past whatever barriers in life they found themselves in. That’s the situation that they try to put Xu in just for trying to prove that MMA is- as it is- a superior sport to any fake martial arts out. That’s pretty crazy!

TotallyPointlessTV:

He fought in 2019 and he beat him up pretty bad. He was only allowed by the government to fight that fight provided he was wearing clown makeup to hide his face and he had to fight under a pseudonym. When I saw that I thought it was sort of like a Braveheart or he was just trying to be intimidating, but no. That’s actually under disrespect. He’s not supposed to be in clown makeup and it took him 36 hours to reach the fight location due to his low credit score. He couldn’t fly there and he couldn’t get the train despite it being practically on the other side of China. So, he had to drive 36 hours just to fight him. Now when I watched the video, I felt sorry for the guy getting beat because I thought you know he clearly doesn’t stand a chance.

TotallyPointlessTV:

But knowing the whole story and knowing that he had to go all that length and that his life is in danger and that they censored him and even gone as far as to remove him from the internet in China so that other people can’t find him, I do get why he’s so determined and maybe so angry about it to the extent that he would go out there and just battle these people because if a similar thing has happened to me just for talking about these idiots making up fake stuffs, I’d be pretty pissed. The only reason that Master Chen agreed to fight him in the first place is because he thought that because of all of the threat and danger he’s under, he wouldn’t accept it.

TotallyPointlessTV:

Xu Xiaodong uploads YouTube videos where he talks about fights and his channel is called “Brother Dong’s Hot Takes”. I’ll put a link to the description if you’d want to check that out. But he can’t even upload that himself. He has to send out to his friends outside of China to get past the firewall. He’s doing God’s work out there and he’s getting a hell of a hard time for it and no one deserves to be shit on by an entire government just for proving that their bullshit martial arts aren’t real.
