Jon Jones Had No Idea How Steven Seagal Got His Number

If you thought Steven Seagal is nearing that age when dementia sets in, you may be on to something. Jon Jones went on Jim Rome and talked about that interview where Steven Seagal implied he was the Nostradamus of MMA.

Jones says the reason he didn’t chat with Steven Seagal was he feared Steven was a spy for Lyoto Machida, a fighter he may face in the future.

“I just thought it was interesting. First off, you never know what people’s motives are, especially to chat with a guy that coaches Lyoto Machida. Machida is definitely somebody I want to fight in my near future and I just didn’t want to share my psychology with him or just who I am leading up to the fight that would put me at a disadvantage in the future. So I just told him I thought it was best if he kind of stayed away. And you know it’s just confusing, really to bring in somebody in that you don’t work with at all and have him try to give you last-second advice. I could just call in an athlete and [having Seagal in the room could] be more detrimental than helpful.” Cage Potato

And if you’re wondering how Steven got Jones’ number in the first place, you’re not alone. Seagal must have traveled through a wormhole or something and pretended to be his agent.

“I’m not sure how he got my number, but he was just like, ‘Hey, listen. I think you’re gonna win the fight and when I predict someone’s gonna win I’m never wrong. I’ve been watching the sport for so many years I’m never wrong when I make my predictions and there’s things I want to go over with you and things like that.’ It was all very strange. I don’t want to badmouth him too bad. He had good intentions, I think, but I definitely wasn’t interested in having Steven Seagal in my corner. Obviously if it was Jet Li or someone…Jet Li would be pretty cool.I definitely would take that call for sure.” Cage Potato

Steven Seagal is living every armchair quarterback’s dream. He manages to get pro-athlete’s numbers and force himself into their dressing rooms to give them unsolicited advice. It’d be like you going into the Pats’ locker room and telling Tom Brady it’d be better if he threw like “this” and it’d just be you standing there with your tongue halfway out in deep concentration trying to maneuver your arm into a perfect 52 degree angle while the entire team nodded and felt sorry for your retarded ass.
