Welp, time to pack it up, UFC and Strikeforce, because there’s a new breed of fighter out there and his name is Zhang Feng. The 23-year old man, hailing from parts unknown (or China, if you believe him over me), recently put on a little fighting exhibition for China News, and quite frankly I am terrified of the results. It seems, if a YouTube video is to be believed, that Feng has mastered the Street Fighter art of Hadouken, or energy blast punches to us common folk.
Feng, however, calls his incredibly unique talent the “Shaolin Sunshine Hand”, which upon first glance is much weaker than the Buddhist Palm, but I suppose all mystical martial artists need to start somewhere. For this news interview, Feng lined up 15 candles, lit them and invited two journalists to punch at them and see if they could put any of the flames out. The woman could not and the man only managed to put out one flame. When it came Feng’s turn, he punched until every candle was extinguished.
Is he a great, big phony? Or is he the most powerful warrior on the face of the Earth?
