A little bit of back story. Judo Gene LeBelle once talked about how, on a movie shoot, Steven Seagal bragged about how he had a 100% effective choke hold defense. Gene tested that theory and choked Steven Seagal until Seagal shat himself. Seagal has long denied the story calling LeBelle a pathological liar.
Anyway, Steven Seagal somehow managed to make a resurgence in the MMA world by telling everyone he taught Anderson Silva a front kick he perfected over 20 years. Anderson played along.
Recently, Strikeforce women’s champion and judo gold medalist Ronda Rousey, who’s always down to give a good soundbite, sat down with MMAInterviews and got a little pissed that Seagal would disrespect Gene and call him a liar. So much so that she said she would make Seagal crap his pants a second time if he said anything bad about LeBelle to her face.
Though Steven would probably spin that story too. “I didn’t crap my pants. It was more of a pungent fart,” he’d probably say as he practiced his slap fighting.
