    In the 80s , there were good martial artists that were actors.
    Van Damme kickboxing champ
    Lungren karate champ
    Bruce Lee kung fu champ
    Chuck Norris karate champ
    Steven Seagal energy mental martial arts champ

    why those days no actor is a martial artist? (not mma, but in any martial art)

    please dont mention Rampage or Woodley are actors...or Randy :)

    I love van damme but he never was a kickboxing champion and Bruce lee never was a kung fu champ. Bruce had few semi contact point fights against nobodys

    Gina Carano is becoming a successful actress. She was a big part of the Mandalorian which was the #1 series for a bit.

    They don't really make movies like those anymore. But I'm sure a lot of actors train in some type of martial arts but they have other talents, like actually acting, so they don't need to lean so heavily on it like Van Damme or Chuck Norris had to.

    I thought so. But after reading your question, here is what I've found :
    "there is no evidence that he ever fought competitively (or for real)."
    But he trained for many techniques.
