Steven Seagal: I’d Fight Randy Couture No Rules | UFC NEWS

“I have to wonder what his intentions may have been in saying that. I always thought that Randy was my friend and a gentleman. I’m kind of confused why he would say that, but I’m here, anybody can find me any time and any place. If Randy really wants to fight me, he can fight me any time he wants”

“It would be for free, and it would be some place where there are no witnesses. I’m hoping it wouldn’t get to that, and I don’t know why it would come about, but if that’s what he wants, he can get it any time he wants.”

“I don’t play by the rules. I’m sure one person will walk out. I’m a man of honor. I’m a gentleman, but I am a warrior, and if he needs to find me, he knows where to find me.”

– Steven Seagal on’s “The MMA Hour: where he also discussed the talent level of GSP (see below).

“I think he’s is a really nice guy. I think he is a good fighter and a good martial artist. Would I call him great? No.

“I just think he’s a wonderful and good martial artist and good guy. Some people are born with greatness, and some people sort of acquire it. But I think with time, he will become better and better.

“One of the things that a master looks at when they look at a fighter is the history of the fighter. When you look at the history of the fighter, you look at their very best fights, their best work, and their worst. If you look at Anderson’s worst fights, they’re not bad. He still looks pretty good.

“If you look at GSP’s worst fight, you look at the thing he did with Shields in Canada, that was atrocious. I think that is very telling. I just didn’t think the technique and the fighting skill was there in that instance. I also saw him after the fight and he wasn’t looking or feeling very well either, which does have some meaning. I think he got hurt in that fight and whether he dominated him or not, I just didn’t think he looked good.”

“Aside from all of that, I think Anderson is just a lot more skilled, and I think he would win handily.”

“I would tell (GSP) not to take the fight.”

    This guys an idiot and worse then that a fake prophet. And I used to like him when I was a kid.

  2. punchkick says:

    sounds like the story line for the expendables 3.

  3. Dana Is Greedy says:

    Segal is not a joke watch his videos on Youtube and you will see he is the real deal as far as martial arts go ..Now MMA is a different animal inside a cage its not the same as a martial arts tournament..But I give respect when respect is due…He does have the ability to hurt quite a few fighters if given the chance…

  4. JuJitsu says:

    Can we get some backstory on this? The story starts with Segal questioning why Randy would say ‘this’. What did Randy say? Put that in the article to clarify please.

  5. LOL says:

    Sorry, I know Segal would beat me to a pulp but I LOL’d so bad by reading this. Best read on this site for a while.

  6. Zach says:

    no one really knows who Sensei Steven Seagal is… even in his own country. Ouch! He is an “8th Dan Aikido Master” morons he can beat 3 people using 1 hand. and it is not a stunt. Does anybody knows Aikido here? Aikido is a Street survival Martial Arts. Sorry to say guys. I thought you knew.

    • Dan says:

      Your a fucking idiot if you think that seagal would have a prayer against cotoure! Street mma that makes no sense dumb ass! The best fighters in the world fight in a octagon for millions not free on the street dip shit!

    • Doots says:

      I totally agree with Zack , I used to think what a wanker when I watched Seagal films but after some further investigation realized he is the REAL deal ! Peace out !

  7. Deathstriker says:

    He needs to go back to the looney bin.

  8. Sevenmf says:

    According to Wikipedia:

    He has helped train Brazilian mixed martial artists Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida. Silva, who is the reigning UFC Middleweight Champion, went on to knock out Vitor Belfort with a kick, in their fight at UFC 126 in February 2011,and Machida also credited him for helping him perfect the crane kick that he used to knock out Randy Couture at UFC 129 in May 2011.

    What do you think?

    • Mike says:

      ^^^ Wikipedia is 90% of the time written by the person who is featured. It’s not legit. Steven seagal is irrelevant now. He’s just trying to latch onto something so he can get some fame back.

      • WTFPeeps says:

        So, when Anderson Silva, AND Lyoto Machida THANK Steven Seagal AFTER their fight IN the ring, then they are just bullshitting everyone out there?? Seriously, his rank IS legit and he KNOWS the techniques are TRUE and he knows what is going on. MMA is a SPORT and NOT a self-defense art! Street Martial Arts is NOT Street “MMA” as some other fool mentioned.
        Besides, Seagal is talking about a TRUE no rules STREETFIGHT and NOT an MMA bout NOR a bout with ANY rules what-so-ever.
        Don’t judge people just because they do not do MMA matches. I don’t doubt the skills of my instructors, just because they might not have done any MMA fights. And I have trained with some of the Gracies AND their top students, a few of whom did NOT have any MMA bouts at the time. (Cesar did not have his first MMA bout until about 12 years after I had started training at his school. I never ONCE doubted his skills!)

        So, try looking outside of the cage, and perhaps you’ll realize there are LEGIT martial artists out there, and they don’t step into a cage to prove it.

  9. Really? says:

    I can’t believe people are still so uninformed that they respect Steven Seagal.

    Even worse they defend him on account of his Aikido standing, which anyone with two eyes to see and a brain to research can put together is just total garbage and a cop out. Both the martial arts practical use itself and his supposedly astounding knowledge of all martial as a result.

    Seriously the guy is so arrogant he won’t let himself die in movies, unless by his own hand. He had several sex slaves which he paid off that released public statements. He wussed out of a fight with Jean Claude Van Damme and shat himself when he got choked out by a stunt man.

    This guy literally has a roster of reasons why he doesn’t deserve any respect.

  10. Chael P. Sonnen says:

    This guy is a complete fool! Randy is all time great. He will easily double leg that fat slob and pound his face in till he gets tired. I actually had an ounce of respect for his martial arts attributes before he ever opened his mouth. Captain Fucking America FTW! oh, If I were you, I’ll be swallowing real hard right about now, cause next time, it’ll be you I’ll be slapping around instead of Andy “Sensei” Seagal…

  11. Johnny says:

    lol…his student knocked Randy out with a move that Seagal taught him. The proof is in the right there….seriously…I hate you internet fanboys.

  12. dave macnutt says:

    hey i have noticed since about ’96 , that no one was using the front kick as anything but like a jab or a feint… kept waiting then …..or the jkd uppercut or hook either …

  13. Iceman says:

    A fight in a remote area? No witnesses? Where’s the fun in that? He doesn’t play by the rules?… what’s he gonna do? gang up on randy? I want to see this happen inside the octagon… NO RULES, just tapout. Dana! can you make this happen?

  14. Killa says:

    Interesting. Not many on here know what is a True Street Fighter. Not many around. Most fighters today are gym fighter like Randy. Steven? well he is just a fake fighter. He married this Japanese lady in Japan to learn from her father and when he made Blk Belt he left her and got married again in Cali while he was still married. Of course Randy gonna beat Steven, but a real street fighter I’ll take anyday over Randy. Remember…Randy got his ass kicked and got knocked out in Hawaii by a 5’8 160lbs fighter. Remember MMA is a Sport. A street fighter is the real deal..he knows every tactics about street fighting than a gym fighter. Steve is trying to use the words of a street fighter when he is not. I’m surprise Randy would call out Steve. I bet you Randy couldn’t beat Mike Tyson He wouldn’t be able to handle Tyson combinations with power. A good fight would be Randy against DANA since Dana think he is bad news …talk as if he is a bad ass when he is not. We all know Dana is prejudice and protecting GSP against Silva.
