Silva distances himself from Steven Seagal ahead of UFC 168
In an recent interview, Silva set the record straight about how much coaching he truly has received from Seagal:
"[Steven] Segal is good man -- no coach -- no train me -- is a good man -- is a good person, that's it."
Hmm, seems like a small step backward from the claims made by Seagal prior that he had been teaching Silva the art of Ashi Sabaki, claims that Demian Maia and Bas Rutten, among others, called bullshit.
Silva attempted to set the record straight once and for all ... sorta:
"Yeah -- I trained the front kick for a long time. I start to train mixed martial arts a long time ago. Segal showed me the movement, the little movement -- but I working hard for this kick my whole life."
