“Steven Seagal helped me perfect that kick. That was a kick we were working on before I stepped in,” Silva said through a translator at the post-fight press conference. “This was a kick that I trained a lot.”
Is this Anderson Silva throwing Steven Seagal a bone to get him in the spotlight? Or is the best mixed martial artist of our generation really training with a dude who spent a good chunk of his life fake snapping the necks of actors in the late 80’s/early 90’s? I’d like to hear MMA fans shed some light on this story, because I don’t know much about Seagal’s fighting background besides the fact that he could tear through about 20 scrubs like no other in his movies.
