Steven Seagal taught Anderson Silva “that kick?”

“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.

WEC Results and Review…

Urijah Faber Flying Knee

If you missed WEC last night then this post is to make you feel bad.  I was expecting some pretty good fights and I was pleasantly surprised to witness some great ones.  All three Title Holders successfully defended their belts with ease except Paulo Filho who barely pulled off a 2nd round submission against a dominant Chael Sonnen.  Doug Marshall almost ripped Ariel Gandulla’s arm in half with an armbar in the 1st round. 

In a furious display on why he is one of the best P4P MMA fighters in the world, Featherweight Urijah Faber weathered a full round of Gracie BJJ Black Belt Jeff Curran on his back and then let the fireworks go in the 2nd, winning with a choke.  Faber also put on a clinic of creative spontaneity, at times pulling off moves and locks that stunned even Frank Mir.  The above picture is an example, a knee to the face off of one leg while Curran held the other.  After winning, a gracious Faber politely called out Pulver who also won.  This looks like a fight that will happen soon and should be one of the best matchups of the year.
