Jon Favreau Wants To Know What Monica's Ultimate Fighting Champion Boyfriend Would Be Doing Now

THE CHAMPION SPEAKS.

Look here: if your favourite pre-Bing Monica boyfriend isn't Jean Claude Van Damme, we don't even want you on this website anymore. Shoo now. Go away.

That's not to say there weren't some great alternatives - there's Fun Bobby, and hairy hunk Richard Burke; Julio the pervy waiter, and high school high-achiever Ethan - but they all paled in comparison to the Muscles from Brussels.

There was also Pete Becker, the Ultimate Fighting Champion (*snort*) played by now-very-famous-indeed Iron Man director Jon Favraeu.

In a recent Reddit Ask Me Anything session, the Hollywood big-shot revealed that he regrets the fact that the character's storyline was never followed through. He said: "Pete Becker was a man of tremendous focus and conviction. He set his heart to being the Ultimate Fighting Champion and I have no doubt that he gave it his all."

"I'm only sorry that that chapter was never closed by the Friends writers because I'll always have to live with the uncertainty of what his fate held."

The UFC has made leaps and bounds over the past decade, so a career spent in the mixed martial arts discipline would have been a savvy move for Pete Beckler. 

But come on, we all know he wouldn't have made it. The very most we would have got would have been a love triangle-induced fight with Chandler over Monica's affections, and... damn, that would be amazing.

If every there was a reason for a Friends reunion, this is it...
