Seagal Says He (http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/Seagal-Says-Hes-Working-with-Machida-on-More-Unseen-Techniques-32108)


After knocking out Randy Couture with a front kick at UFC 129, Lyoto Machida credited Steven Seagal for helping him perfect the maneuver.

Plenty of critics believe it is a preposterous claim that Seagal really aided Machida, but the actor and martial artist said it’s true during a recent interview on the Sherdog Radio Network’s “It’s Time” show with Bruce Buffer.

“With Lyoto, I came in probably five days before the fight, something like that,” Seagal said. “Started working on different kinds of elbows, different kinds of punching, different kinds of feetwork … but particularly the kick. I think against a lot of the guys who have spent a lot of their energy on wrestling, they’re not exactly what I would call great strikers. The kick can be very effective. This kick is different.”

A strength of the technique, Seagal said, is that it is deceiving.

Seagal also said there is more in the arsenal than just front kicks.

“There are some real different elbows,” he said. “There are some real different punches. There are some real different entrances that I’m working on with the guys. There are some other things that I don’t want to talk about that you guys just haven’t seen at all yet. You haven’t seen it, but it’s legal.”

This guy is a fucking joke. In the video's we saw anyways he was just showing anderson and lyoto a lot of akido techniques. Uses his 2 hands to chop away at every single strike thrown by the opponent. Thank god neither have tried to do that, as they would get ktfo. Hopefully soares keeps their sessions very limited and doesnt believe the own hype that hes dumbass created.

The most sad thing is that many many people actually believe in this fraud.
You can say whatever you want "He is a very legit martial artist, he can kill you in 1 second and this and that" but no way he is the responsible for Machida´s and Anderson´s last victories.

If he is really so great he would be training MMA fighters since a very long time.

Machida actually laughs when he says that Seagal helped him
