Steven Seagal says GSP can’t hang with Anderson Silva

Yesterday, martial arts movie actor Steven Seagal appeared on “The MMA Hour” to discuss a variety of topics with host Ariel Helwani. What followed were some quite interesting statements. Seagal is known to be in Anderson Silva’s corner from time to time, so of course he gave his take on the topic of Silva versus GSP. He believes that the two should meet in the Octagon, but GSP could not hang with Silva. His quotes on the long-awaited superfight:

“I think in this situation size matters, and I think that Anderson has the distinct advantage not only in size and weight, but also in his skill and his ability. I don’t want to say Anderson would run right though him, but I think he will decisively win.”

“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 (Jake) Shields in Canada, that was atrocious. I just didn’t think the technique and the fighting skill was there in that instance. Would I call him great? In my words, no.”

Some harsh criticism for one of the best fighters to ever compete in MMA. Seagal may not have much respect for GSP’s game, and perhaps beating Shields was not his finest hour, but GSP’s accomplishments in the Octagon cannot be denied. Seagal wasn’t done there however, and moved on to address a comment by Randy Couture, who said the only way he would come out of retirement was to face Seagal:

“I’m kind of confused as to why he would say that. All I can say is, I’m here. Anybody can find me anytime and anyplace. If Randy really wants to fight me, he can fight me anytime he wants. It’ll be for free, and it’ll be some place where there are no witnesses. Oh no, I don’t play by rules. That’s not how I fight.”

Quite the polarizing interview from Seagal. Is he trying to drum up some controversy and media exposure with his strong proclamations, or is this just truly how he feels? Do the words of Steven Seagal actually apply to today’s MMA’s world? What do you think?

    Seagal wants a fight with no rules? So he is openly wishing to be killed?

    I don't care how much weight he has on Couture, Randy would DESTROY him… it's past being funny just ludicrous.. that's if the oaf is being serious.

    On GSP not being a great martial artist? He is easily one of the strongest martial artist type characters… he lives his life with honour and respect. When you think of Martial Artists in MMA you think of guys like Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida, Cung Le, Big Nog, JDS and of course GSP…. just guys who live their lives with unwavering integrity and respect.
    Talking about technique.. GSP is one of the cleanest strikes in the game and his submission defense and ability to out grapple people with technique (his power helps too of course) is just as good as anyone in martial arts.
    Not to mention his multiple black belts in legit arts…

        You think a guy with zero MMA experience has a 30% chance against a former multiple time, multiple weight class champion?

        Make that 0.001% and you're getting closer.

          Zero MMA experience?! Really. You're so naive. The guy is a aikido dan and has been a cop for twenty years doing all types of training. I'm sure Anderson seeks his counsel for a reason. I'm sure Brock Lesnar had loads of MMA experience when he won the world title too?! Steven Seagal has some deadly kicks and I'm sure he hits like a truck. While it's standing I say 70-30 because of cardio alone…Seagal's standup skills dwarf Couture's. I'm a big Couture fan. Anderson, BJ, Rampage and Couture are my all time favourites. But Seagal has at least as much of a chance as James Toney did and I can see him having a much smarter gameplan with Blackhouse in his corner. Think about it dude…?

            No Brock didnt have loads of MMA experience, but he sure as hell had about 50+lbs more than Couture & thats 50+lbs of MUSCLE & fury. Are you comparing a 60+ yr old Segal with a 30+ yr old Lesnar in his physical prime?!? Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Seagal would get killed or whatever, I hear he's sick at Aikido & knows his shit, but I also hear that Aikido isnt really all that great compared to other martials arts. Like they say how many MMA fighters have been introduced as Aikido fighter?!? Just sayin'

            Also, Seagal was never a "real" cop. Here's a story that I read 1 week ago, how ironic that I read this story about him not really being a cop, while you actually believe all his BS. Anyway, enjoy!

      The really sad part about this is, that Seagal actually has talent and something to offer. It's just that his ego keeps getting in the way of it. He just can't be that guy in the background giving advice. No, he has to be the seer-of-seers, the keeper of mystical powers and the inventor of the front-snap kick.

      Funny, I've often wondered whether or not anyone has ever played Seagal any of Anderson's old fight tapes, showing The Spider using that kick. I remember in the Dan Henderson fight, he came dangerously close to landing that same kick in round one. If he has seen it, it must be awfully embarrassing for him.

      Does anyone know when Silva and Seagal's friendship started and how it came about?

      Am I the only one who noticed that when Seagal talked about Silva's "terrible" fights, he still looked good?!? I seen nothing good in his fight vs. Cote, Maia & Leites, sure he did his thing in the first 2 rounds, but then after that it was a disaster. I'd much rather pay to see GPS try & not act like a jack ass, hiding behind the referee in a new market, where people paid $600+ to see him KTFO of Maia. At least GSP's fight vs. Shields was due to an injury, and at least GSP said himself that the Shields fight was his worst in years, but never used the I could only see out of 1 eye for 3 rounds excuse. Silva couldnt even admit he was shit vs. Maia or Leites or even why Cote lasted the longest than any other Silva opponent in the UFC. At the press conference, Silva said he did his job & had nothing to apologize for ….?!? Really? You called those 3 fights MMA?!? The guy wasnt even injured & Cote lasted 3 rounds with him & LEites & Maia went the decision? Jesus Christ, Maia won 2 rounds! But GSP looked worst than Silva?!? Maybe Seagal should look to getting a new pair of glasses, b/c it's clear that guy cant see shit.

      I also find it funny how Seagal himself, stated that the size & weight would definitely be a major advantage for Silva, yet Silva fans claim it wouldn't!!! BAHAHAHAH now what?!?

        I hear ya on all points, man. Sometimes, the emperor has not clothes, IMO. His record is peppered with BS fights that meant nothing, against opponents that were no threat to his belt. And when he has had challenges, he's gone out of his way to avoid the fight. As you exampled. On a challenge-for-challenge basis, GSP crushes Anderson Siva. Period. On a round-for-round basis, GSP crushes Anderson Silva. The 170 Champ has never been spanked or owned in a round, KO'd or arm-bared out of the blue, sure. However, owned in a round, for a round, round after round, it's never happened. At no time in any fight has GSP ever been dominated on the ground. He's never been dominated on the feet. Caught, yes, but dominated, no.

        The question in this fight – can Anderson Silva @ 17-X stop GSP's take-downs and grind for five rounds, regardless of stoppage? The answer is no. No man has, yet. The 185 Champ is not renowned for his wrestling, nor his TDD. He is even less renowned for getting up off his back, once taken down. GSP has a remarkable combination of wrestling, BJJ, cardio, power and athleticism. Quoting Carlos Condit…"his top-control is pretty formidable". I don't see Anderson stopping it or getting back up once it's been enacted. Enforced. He will not reverse, let alone submit GSP off of his back.

        IMO, this is a lose-lose situation for Anderson. If he wins, he will have only done what all though he "should" do. If he loses, there goes his legacy / immortality. He lost to a smaller man. For GSP, it's a win-win. If he loses, he was only dealt the fate of those that have come before. He achieve the expected. That is all. Gave it his best and all that. If he wins, however, WOW!!! One would almost want to make the argument that if he did, that he should immediately announce his retirement. Spike the ball and walk off the field.

        The lower the weight, the more dangerous this fight becomes for Anderson. Regardless of weight, 170 to 178, the ten pound won't mean a thing if GSP can get inside and execute his take-down. GSP @ relative weight, will hands down be the more powerful man, not striker, but man. If he gets inside he will pick Anderson up and dump him on his ass and there will be nothing that Silva will be able to do to stop it. No one else has. As no one has a solution to Anderson on the feet, no one has a solution to stopping GSP's take-down or ground control. I don't see why Silva would be any different. Eight pounds or otherwise.

        This is a dicey fight for Anderson. Much more so, than he thinks. Should he get. If he thinks he can just drop down and claim an easy victory over a Marquis fighter, he could easily have another thing coming.

    This is the oafish ranting of a bully. He's making a statement against Randy with the confidence it could never happen. I'll fight GSP (hes in the same weight class as me) to the death if the fight takes place in Iran – naked. A safe loudmouth statement to make. He's using the age old martial arts bluff – my martial arts are too deadly to tussle with Randy.

      I trained in a martial art when I was 16-27. At the time in my town most martial arts were sport oriented (Judo, Tae Kwon Do, Point Karate etc). We prided ourselves as training for real life situations. We were often told that if you and your date were out and you didn't put the first thug down for good and fast then your girl's safety was at risk of getting curb stomped or raped. Thus we trained eye gouges, trachea strikes, finger breaking, shin stomps etc. This is what Seagal is alluding to. He not saying it out right because he likes to imply (my mystical skills and my CIA back ground, licenced to kill….blah blah blah) He is becoming a characature of himself.

    are you guys serious?
    in the cage randy would win all day through wrestling and boxing but Seagal is talking about illegal moves from juijitsu and wing chun as in throat strikes, eye gouge, groin strikes and so on that are designed for survival to severely damage or kill the opponent. which he is knowledgeable on and randy is not! (there are so many moves not allowed in mma that are banned for a reason)

          Right, as does every old school "martial artist" that puts up the act of not competing because they'd be too dangerous.

          If you want to see what happens when real "no holds barred" rules are put into place watch old IVC videos or old UFC's. There's very little throat strikes happening, and the fights still usually hits the mat (where the head comes into being a big part of the equation).

            Seagal may not be the greatest actor on the planet, but he does have some credentials as a martial artist. Quite frankly if they fought outside of the cage, I think Seagal, with a decent cardio, would destroy Randy. However, if the fight happened in the cage, Randy would most likely dominate him. That's kind of what I meant what i said that mmagym has a valid point.

            Yeah, I've been watching the old UFC videos since 96 – 1997 and you're right. That's actually the main reason why Royce Gracie is my favorite fighter of all time.

            "I think Seagal, with a decent cardio, would destroy Randy. "

            Out of everything you've ever said on this site, this is easily the stupidest, most out of touch with reality line you've ever posted.

            There's a reason wrestlers dominated the NHB when they were finally given a chance (The Gracies conveniently kept them away early on). All they have to do is get in close, and grab a hold of their opponent. Then its headbutts, elbows, sticking their fingers in cuts to open them up further, eye gauging, and more dirty tactics than you can name without a dictionary.

            I understand what MMAgym was implying. The thought itself is asinine, and its even more mind boggling that people who frequent an MMA site would be swayed by the tales of a guy who is a side show attraction.

    First, these kind of statements coming from someone who is as closely aligned with Anderson, as Seagal is, is an embarrassment to The Champ. It is without class and sans the ability to back it up. Seagal can shoot his mouth off about GSP all day, if he wants? What can GSP really do about it? He can make wise-cracks about one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time, knowing that the fight won't happen if it's not a public event and with rules. It's an easy game to play, rhetoric wise. The odd thing about is though, that we have hours or footage on GSP and Randy, both Champions, demonstrating the martial arts "credentials". In terms of Seagal, we only have cheesy and poorly scripted, martial arts "movies".

    And to make public comment A / B (ing) Anderson's fight history against Rush's, I'm sorry, but on a pound-for-pound, round-for-round basis, GSP out does Silva in terms of quality of opponents, legitimate threats / challenges to his belt and never being dominated in a fight. Where GSP has two losses on his record, no where can you say he was spanked or manhandled in a fight. Anderson on the other hand, has had that done to him and has failed to engage, in a meaningful way, some of the more serious challenges put before him. Maia and Leites being examples. He wanted nothing to do with either of those fighters on the ground and gave us a BS fight. Or to put it this way, at no time in GSP's reign as Champion has Dana White ever given the belt to Rush's manager and said out of disgust as The Champ's performance…."you put it on him".

    The irony of it all is, that if Seagal was an active, current, UFC fighter, this would all be great rhetoric and we might have our selves at least one good fight (Couture / Seagal), but he is not and all this becomes is the bulls##t ramblings of a washed up movie and reality TV star and an embarrassment to one of the greatest fighters and camps in all of MMA.

    Anderson should say to Seagal, what he said to Ed Sores a while back…shut the F##k up.

      Agreed! Steven Seagal, who does this ass clown think he is?!? B/C he wants to stick his fingers up Silva's ass, to prove to himself Silvas shit doesnt stink (thouhg Silva wants no part of it). I think Seagal should think b4 he talks. He contradicts himself how many times ?!? This fight should happen, GSP should take this fight, but GSP cant hang with Silva, the weight & size is too much to overcome …. so which is it jello dick?!? Should this fight happen, or is Silvas weight & size too much for GSP to overcome?!? Well seeing Silva will have all the advantages, the height, weight, size & reach, GSP should tell him, listen dick cheese, you challenged me, so drop down to WW. Who challenges an opponent & asks them to gain weight & move up, something the guy has never done before & on top of that, when was the last time you've ever heard of a much bigger fighter calling out a much smaller fighter?!?

      Sure sounds like the GOAT Chump … I mean Champ, with that nice padded resume. Especially that LHW resume, all those 1 dimensional, B level fighters who had ZERO WRESTLING!!! Must have been a coincidence that Silva never fought a LHW with a wrestling background!

        One more thing – every martial art (including wrestling which has a long sports history) can be used to kill. Aikido is not the only deadly art. What Seagal is saying is I am the only guy without the brains or creativity to adapt my combat techniques for the octagon. My switch only has to positions: 1) sit around and eat, or 2) kill people.

    Segal is an odd guy, but I agree with his several valid points…basically he would whoop Randy

    Def_tac says " Steven Seagal cant hang with chuck Norris". And in the words of the ever wise (dropkickmurphy)

    If it goes past 3 seconds..Seagal's cardio will be a factor

    This would be akin to the Legion of Doom taking on the Hall of Justice- and we all know how that usually turns out!

    There seams to be a lot of hate fore Seagal here. Two things to consider though; 1, It was Randy who started this crap. 2, Seagal is an excellent Aikidoka. That probably gives him some pretty sick TDD and we know he at least has fast hands (whether or not they are effective we do not know). In a street fight I don't think one can intelligently argue that either of these guys has an advantage aside from Randy's obvious conditioning edge.

    seagul would kill randy its funny how people dont see that they are probably the same people who thought velasquez would beat JDS. im pretty sure seagul would aikidoka kick hiim in his throat, u see the street is much different then conservative mma.

      Sarcasm fail. FYI though, the street is much different than in the cage. There are things that work very well in the cage that do not work well in a street fight (like pacing oneself, triangle chokes) and vice versa (bil jee, groin kicks, stomps, sand in the face, strikes to the back of the head, small joint manipulation).

    Seagal needs to humble himself, just because he trains with Silva and Machida doesent mean he knows everything about MMA, saying that GSP is not great is ludakris. GSP is on his way to becoming the best welterweight of all time and #2 pound for pound(some people say #1) fighter in the world. Seagal needs to stop running his mouth and take silvas dick out of his mouth because if he stepped in the cage with anyone in the UFC he would get ran over.

    Wow!! Who knew being an aikido master made you a master critic of MMA? Why doesnt everyone involve aikido into their MMA training? Oh wait, because its pretty much fkn worthless. Seagal makes it so easy to hate him. I appreciate when he opens his mouth so I have something to laugh about. Would love that Couture fight to happen. Just to hear the post fight interview after.

    It is very sad when "has beens" try to retain their fifteen minutes of fame by making asinine comments. Couture would "mop the floor" with Seagal and Seagal knows it. Why doesn't Seagal just go away and watch reruns of his lousy movies.

    Am I the only one who noticed that when Seagal talked about Silva's "terrible" fights, he still looked good?!? I seen nothing good in his fight vs. Cote, Maia & Leites, sure he did his thing in the first 2 rounds, but then after that it was a disaster. I'd much rather pay to see GPS try & not act like a jack ass, hiding behind the referee in a new market, where people paid $600+ to see him KTFO of Maia. At least GSP's fight vs. Shields was due to an injury, and at least GSP said himself that the Shields fight was his worst in years, but never used the I could only see out of 1 eye for 3 rounds excuse. Silva couldnt even admit he was shit vs. Maia or Leites or even why Cote lasted the longest than any other Silva opponent in the UFC. At the press conference, Silva said he did his job & had nothing to apologize for ….?!? Really? You called those 3 fights MMA?!? The guy wasnt even injured & Cote lasted 3 rounds with him & LEites & Maia went the decision? Jesus Christ, Maia won 2 rounds! But GSP looked worst than Silva?!? Maybe Seagal should look to getting a new pair of glasses, b/c it's clear that guy cant see shit.

    I also find it funny how Seagal himself, stated that the size & weight would definitely be a major advantage for Silva, yet Silva fans claim it wouldn't!!! BAHAHAHAH now what?!?

    Guys, seriously – Stop saying Judo Gene made Seagal crap his pants. That's just not true. Seagal explains it here:
