Jon Jones Doesn’t Want Steven Seagal Training Him

MMA Fighting caught up with Steven Seagal backstage following Saturday’s UFC 135 main event and talked to him about Jon Jones’ win over Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. You should watch this interview. It’s amazing and a little sad.

Here’s some background. Allegedly, Steven Seagal taught Anderson Silva the front kick that he used to knockout Vitor Belfort and the one Lyoto Machida used to knock out Randy Couture. Anderson Silva even thanked Seagal in his post-fight speech.

Well, now Seagal fancies himself an MMA trainer and wanted to talk to Jon Jones before his fight with Rampage. In the nicest way possible, Jones told him to get lost, saying he didn’t want to disrespect his current trainers.

Asked whether he thought Jon Jones was going to win, Seagal was taken aback. Of course he knew Jones was going to win. As Seagal says, he “has a pretty good eye” for these things as he’s been “fighting his whole life.” Asked about the front kick Jones tried on Rampage, Seagal said he saw it but scoffed and said he hadn’t taught it to him yet. Which is why it didn’t work.

I can’t tell whether Steven Segal is trolling or if he’s just so incredibly delusional that he thinks he knows what he’s talking about. Either way, it should be amusing when he asks Dana White for a one-off fight with a Monte Cristo sandwich. “Imma front kick that b*tch into my mouf.”

    He helped Anderson improve his technique he didn’t show it to him. He did the same thing with Machida. If you watch both videos Anderson vs Belfort and Jones vs Rampage you will see that the latter was more of a push even as while Rampage was walking towards him. As for Anderson he threw it and it landed as a strike would no push at all just one hard blow right to the chin. There’s videos on youtube of him training with segal leading up to that fight they were there before he even fought belfort and you could see both of them along with feijao working on the technique against the matted walls. I love mma

    Seagal taught Silva how to do a simple front kick? Not likely… is a great kick, it’s crazy how little it is used in MMA

    • Anonymous

      yup. it’s like the side kick. two great weapons that are rarely used in MMA.

    hahaha. I thought he was gonna grab Ariel’s arm and do some akido on him when he brought up Joe Rogan. hahaha

    • The only thing Steven Seagal practices akido on nowadays are chocolate eclairs.

  • Riseup124
