Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Terrifying Photo of the Day: Steven Seagal Has a New ‘Friend’

(Photo via dc_mma)

Besides his uncanny ability to ingratiate himself into the lives of elite MMA fighters, I’ll give Steven Seagal credit for something else — the guy knows how to pick winners. During an appearance at this weekend’s Fighters Only World MMA Awards in Las Vegas, the action star set his sights on his next pet project, telling MMAWeekly:

If I had to choose anybody today [as 'Fighter of the Year'] I would probably pick Daniel Cormier because I think he is the best out of that lot…He’s the guy and I’m maybe going to be working with him a little bit, we’ll see. I think that he’s not the kind of person that everybody knows about, yet he’s sort of a sleeper, you know? I think that’s going to be really interesting. I’m not going to say any more than that. I’ll just say he’s a friend of mine, that’s all.”

The photo you see above was tweeted out by Cormier yesterday, accompanied by the caption “With sensei seagal ufc 148.” So why would Cormier release a random six-month-old photo of himself and Seagal, the day after his victory at Strikeforce’s final event? And why would he call Seagal “sensei”? No. Oh God, no. This isn’t happening.

Regardless of who Cormier fights in his UFC debut, prepare to see Seagal — decked out in his traditional bulletproof kimono — giving self-satisfied interviews to Ariel Helwani about the secret techniques that he’s passing on to his new student, Emelianegro-san. The master just hooked another big fish. Deal with it.

please tell me that picutre is photoshopped.. God what have we done to displease you?!

And jon jones is an overrated bitch. Above average striking and decent wrestling paired with arms as long as street posts might make for a good fighter but i still dont like one bone in jon jones body.. @dipsetkilla

@monstermaulingass you Obviously don't know what Jon jones Is capable of

Remember the time Cormier punched that guy? Well Steven Seagal invented punching.

That time he picked up that guy and slammed him down? Well Steven Seagal invented that too.

James Toney's dad also taught him the sidecheck kick which he learned from Steven Seagal's book, although that was the edition that has a misprint...

"I'll just say he's a friend of mine"
Yeah, he said the same thing about Jon Jones to which Jones replied that he met Seagull just once and didn't even know how he got his phone number. Seagull just wants attention and is sore that Jones didn't take him up on any Aikido lessons, which by the way is not a useful martial art for MMA. Go away you has-been D-list actor.

Dracula want's his hair line back , it looks like his fucked up lettuce is painted on with black shoe polish. Cormier' hands and boxing skills are pretty impressive for a relative newby to the strikeing game if he can get inside jones's reach I think he could take him down and go all GSP on him.

I don't want to ever grow up. Grownups make me want to throw up.

Was laughing my ass of while reading that last comment until I read the word "dubstep". That word made me sad and queezy all at once. Then I vomited a trickle of bile the color of a piss held in too long. You did that Mr_Misanthropy. Dubstep is an evil thing, not to be taken lightly. Remember that the next time you think to make a "joke". Hardy fucking har! Grow up, dude. Seriously.

I want to start a new headbutting league where the contestants are handcuffed to a metal post and nobody is released until somebody is unconscious or dead. I'll call it Head'n'Arm and I want Tito Ortiz and Sensei Seagull to headline the first event.

PS- Oh yes, there will be copious amounts of dubstep.

I feel sorry for Anderson Silva, he has lost his best friend to Cormier.
dipsetkilla316- January 14, 2013 at 1:38 pm
Taco no offense but u must be retard if u think Cormier even has a slight chance against jones ill beat u a grand jones Anally rapes him.
MonsterMaulingAss- January 14, 2013 at 1:56 pm
I think you're retard, and you obviously do not know what DC is capable of.
dipsetkilla316- January 14, 2013 at 1:35 pm
He's his phony ass has to make money, and abuse the little knowledge he has on mma some how. Right?
JudoBlackBelt- January 14, 2013 at 1:27 pm
Don't you guys know?? Seagal taught the Lateral Drop to Cormier!
algiersheadkick504- January 14, 2013 at 12:48 pm
FYI Seagal is way to famous and badass to do actual police work. He stands in front the camera and lets the real JP's do his job
algiersheadkick504- January 14, 2013 at 12:46 pm
He will use a takedown Seagal "invented" against Mir I assume
Mr_Misanthropy- January 14, 2013 at 12:37 pm
It was the only way Cormier could stay out of the Jefferson Parish jail. It was this or get charged with Felony class 2 Black on a Friday Night.

I'm not only the president, I'm also a client. If you want a sweet hairline, call now. Operators are standing by.

If they were going to revive something from the early ninetie's, why couldn't they have picked something cool like the flat top or shirts that changed color.
ArmFarmer- January 14, 2013 at 9:31 am
Seagal picked Cormier for fighter of the year? Anderson will not take kindly to being dishespected like this...
The12ozCurls- January 14, 2013 at 9:14 am
With the quantity of fabric it took to make that Hawaiian shirt, I bet is was made out of an old car cover.

With the amount of time Zuffa spends with policing sponsors and such, they would ban this fat asshole from ruining the image of their fighters. Daniel Cormier is dead to me, I don't care how good of a fighter he is or how much of a nice guy he is, associating with the lowest life form to come out of 1980's and 1990's Hollywood cannot be forgiven.

Worst. Lethal Weapon. Reboot. Ever.
Fried Taco- January 14, 2013 at 7:50 am
Yes!!! And with a drop down to LHW, this means Jon Jones will be toast!

We might finally get some answers that won't get lost in translation.
