If you thought this Anderson Silva vs Chael Sonnen rematch couldn’t get any bigger, you wuz wrong! Because now Sensei Steven Seagal is in the house, and he’s taking things to the next level. Ariel Helwani interviewed Seagal at the open workouts and I hope you enjoy how he says ‘we’ instead of ‘he’ whenever he talks about Anderson Silva fighting:
“On this fight we’re not gonna be nice. We’re going to be reall really deep. I don’t think that we should fight with emotion but with fierce determination to dominate and exterminate. He’s determined and so am I. We’re determined to make this great. I just got done training him now and I’m gonna keep training him until he walks into the ring.”
How can Chael stand a chance when he’s up against the best pound for pound fighter in the world AND Steven Seagal??? Especially with such amazing technique. After the jump, Seagal gets onto the mats and lays a literal smackdown on Rafael ‘Feijao’ Cavalcante. Is this a taste of “that deadly stuff” Seagal has taught Silva?
Here’s another video of the workouts showing Anderson hitting pads and Steven Seagal doing whatever the eff that is with Feijao. At 6:10 you can watch Seagal have a conversation with Silva and what looked to me like Silva kinda blowing him off. Maybe he’s getting tired of Steven popping up during every fight and stealing his thunder? Or maybe Seagal just didn’t realize a guy cutting weight probably doesn’t want to go out to a Brazilian steakhouse:
