It's MMA Star Bas Rutten Vs. Kevin James in 'Here Comes the Boom' — EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

By Matt Patches, Hollywood.com Staff

Hearing Bas Rutten utter ""It's too dangerous"" seems almost laughable. After all, the Netherlands-born mixed martial artist has been fighting professionally since he was 20 years old. But that's exactly what he tells Kevin James in this exclusive new clip from the upcoming Here Comes the Boom and considering the circumstances, it's sage advice.

In the movie, James plays Scott Voss, a biology teacher who sees an opportunity in MMA fighting when his school's extra-curricular activities are in jeopardy of being canceled. Voss may be schlubby, but in MMA, even the losers make prize money. Rutten plays his trainer Niko, who is on board for the plan… until Voss' ambition gets ahead of him.

Here Comes the Boom should offer James the opportunity of a real heartfelt performance, but the uplifting tale doesn't skimp on the comedy. Even Rutten gets his moment in the spotlight. Watch the clip below to see James push Rutten a bit too far for a man entirely comprised of muscle:
