Steven Segal would absolutely murder Fedor. Fedor would find out what fighting a REAL martial arts master is all about. It wouldn't last 2 seconds. Fedor would go to throw a punch, then there would be some jerky camera angles and you'd see segals hands moving really fast, and Fedor would be on the ground in pain.
That's how Segal rolls, he leaves 'em on the ground in pain. Get used to it.
Peace on you! If you're serious, you certainly aren't very bright. Segal is a FAKE. He has NO experience against real competition-- and yet you're under the sad delusion that his Aikido LARP'ing (i.e. Live Action Role-Playing) is a substitute -- even an IMPROVEMENT-- over years of real competitive fighting, in real competitive styles?
Please, step AWAY from the crack-pipe!
Segal is about 270 lbs. of pure lard on a small-boned frame, with ZERO competitive experience. NONE.
Akido is even a competitive style, so there is ZERO evidence that it has ANY effectiveness against trained competitors who ae EXPERTS in competitive styles.
Finally, all evidence shows that Akido practictioners avoid
competition, since there is ample opportunity, but ZERO evidence of taking it; therefore they can't claim that it's anywhere near as effective as competitive styles and training.
In comparison, Fedor is built much better for MMA, being 6' tall and 230 lbs of MUSCLE.
He He has won numerous tournaments and accolades in multiple sports, most notably the Pride 2004 Grand Prix and the World Combat Sambo championship on four occasions, as well as medaling in the Russian national Judo championship.
He has been considered the best heavyweight fighter in the world for the last six years by many major publications, including ESPN, the Orange County Register, The Fight Network, the Houston Chronicle, The Wrestling Observer, Sherdog, and Inside MMA. HE was also chosen as the greatest fighter of all time across all weight classes by an expert panel of the television show "Inside MMA".
Tell me, where does SEAGAL register on all those?
I take it you aren't a scientist, because otherwise you'd realize that the simple principle of scientific pragmatism
requires PROOF, in order to form a valid conclusion.... otherwise you're just spouting methane.
Seagal has never beaten ANYONE... other than his ex-wives and girl-friends. And as a result, the only time Seagal's hand moves fast is when he's ALONE.
