Steven Seagal Says He Trained With Anderson Silva For Sonnen Fight | UFC NEWS

“I have (trained with Anderson Silva for this camp). I gave him some stuff that I consider to be very special, and I think it is also stuff that I don’t think most people will be expecting.”

“Well, there are millions of techniques that no one has ever seen in the UFC. I’ve showed him some of those, but I’m not going to talk about what they are. There are things that I think if Anderson decides to use them, they’ll be very effective.”

“One never knows what a fighter is going to do until he gets out there. When he fought… Vitor Belfort, I was with him until seconds before he went out. That was exactly what I asked him to do and to a ‘T,’ it was just perfect. Sometimes they do it, what you suggested and what you taught. Sometimes they go on their own, because he has an amazing plethora of different techniques, they’re very effective.”

“…We were doing Mixed Martial Arts before they even began using that term, so I’ve got a plethora of techniques that are not widely used in the UFC at all. I’m trying to bring some of those with me ’cause I think they’ll be very effective.”

While a guest on’s “The MMA Hour” Master Seagal talked about his influence on the Mixed Martial Arts styling’s of the UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva.

Will his teaching make a difference in the fight and will Anderson once again credit the action movie star with his victory?
