Demian Maia Calls Steven Seagal/Anderson Silva Relationship ‘A Lie’ and ‘A Joke’


(“And then I told him, ‘I’m a martial artist.’ Haha, I know, right?” | Photo via lebeauleblog)

As ridiculous as his peripheral presence in the UFC has been, I can’t remember any pro fighter calling shenanigans on the whole “Steven Seagal has helped coach Anderson Silva” narrative that has been perpetrated on the MMA public over the past few years. That is, until today.

Former Silva foe Demian Maia recently spoke to Yahoo! Esportes and had the guts to go on record and state the obvious — that the bloated fake martial artist and movie actor Steven Seagal has absolutely nothing to teach a real fighter like Silva, and everyone knows it. “That’s a lie, is marketing,” Maia said.

“He never taught anything to Anderson…it is a joke.”

If you think Maia is just squeezing some sour grapes because of the way Anderson embarrassed him when they fought a few years ago, the Jiu Jitsu expert insists that he wasn’t rooting against Silva this last time out when he lost to Chris Weidman at UFC 162. “I was not rooting against him in this fight, honestly,” Maia said.

Shocked, potato nation? You shouldn’t be.

Seagal hasn’t fought so much as stuff his face non-stop throughout his “martial arts career,” but he has been known to rent out entire music venues for his band so he could report that he sold out a place. If you didn’t already know that Seagal was a joke from his movies, his failed tactics for Anderson at UFC 162 should have clued you in.

More like a fat, old Eddie Munster thing going on. Which I guess is like saying a fat, old Dominick Cruz thing going on.

Is it just me, or does Segal have a Count Von Count thing going on? "I teach Anderson one front kick, two front kick...ah ah ah"

Why don't you go shit your pants, Seagal. Ya that's right, people don't forget.

ahhh you are just jealous because he beat you to this stupidity first. You been busy crying and gargling with Silva's ballsack to write this up yourself huh? to sad.

You can always count on a Seagal-bashing article to bring out that gooood drano ire. Probably could have cooked an egg on his forehead when he was writing that.

"If you didn’t already know that Seagal was a joke from his movies..." Outstanding logic, Cepeda. After all, that's how I know Randy Couture is a joke too. Anyone does martial arts movies is a punk-ass bitch, amirite?

Maia drinks his own piss, this disqualifys him from being believable his whole life. What's your goddamn excuse Cepeda? Did Seagal fuck your mother or something? You have an irrational view of reality. Stop being a complete fucktard and write something worth reading for a damn change.

Machida... Maia, same thing, right? It's good to see you know what you're talking about though.

Maia's a hater. he just wishes Seagal would teach him the front kick to the face.

Sensei Seagal has taught Anderson his single greatest weapon.

Unfortunately, the cock punch is illegal in the octagon.

Don't you mean the "slap and tickle"?
