I get all the jokes about the interview, and why people are making them, my question is WTF is Seagal wearing?? He's got the goggles from the "Law Man" show, the black leather jacket from Hard to Kill.....he shouldn't have done that interview......

Can't believe all the replies degrading Seagal, sure he may be a little high on himself but there was a difference between Silva's kick and a front kick. A front kick is pushed forward after the knee is already at height, this kick was in a forward but also and upward motion.

If you really want proof that Seagal taught Silva the change of technique watch the following video starting at 4:40



"Don't push, kick"

Yeah Seagal didn't teach him that at all...

the thing with that is, we have photos of Anderson landing the kick in the exact same posture, stance, and aimed at the chin, in his previous fights.

Where are they? Not that I don't believe you, I'm just curious as I've never seen them before. (I think)

Seagal joking aside, he is one seriously dangerous dude i must say. He'll ruin your joints in a split second. Silva has losts to learn from him, albeit even if not in joint manipulation or striking, but just in defense alone, and weight tranfering.

It's all good --> GSP will hire on Chuck Norris as his new coach and unleash a flurry of round house kicks to Anderson's face.

So Steven Seagal invented the high push kick just like Al Gore invented the internet.
You learn something new each and every day.

I could dig up dozens of videos of Muay Thai fighters using this exact same technique in just a few minutes of searching the internet.

Seagal is delusional.

Right. So Anderson knocks a guy out with a kick that nobody has EVER knocked anybody out with... and you guys make out like its a plain old front kick. Obviously it isnt. It knocked Vitor the fook out.

What do you people think? That Anderson trains with Segal for fun? To humour him? Dont be absurd. Segal obviously has something to offer otherwise Silva wouldn't be bothering with his fat ass.

I'll take Andersons word over any of you lot about Segals credentials and abilities.

oh, but you see, anderson wrote him a letter asking for his deadly stuff, so you need to recognize that even if he used it before it was all steven all along.

I think the kick was amazing and give Seagal all the credit he deserves, I just find amusement in the whole situation. No need to get offended when people laugh at the thought that Steven Seagal would be training and helping the best fighter in the world.

I mean, have you ever seen Steven Seagal Lawman? Cmon...
