Steven Seagal just won't go away. It was pretty humorous when Seagal, with 100% seriousness, took credit for teaching Black House members Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida the front kicks that saw them defeat Vitor Belfort and Randy Couture respectively. I guess he thought he would take some of his wisdom over to another superstar, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, before UFC 135. But Fighters Only reports that Seagal got shot down:

"He was wondering if he could come and talk to me backstage before the fight, just give me some words of encouragement. I didn't think that would be a good idea," Jones revealed.

"My training staff works very hard on me. I'm their prodigy. I wouldn't want to disrespect them by welcoming someone else's master into our room, into our house, into our family."

Steven Seagal doesn't even seem to be aware that he's a complete joke, which makes it even funnier.

It definitely seems like a joke at first, but when I start to think about it, he has ridiculous credentials. I also, have never trained with him like Anderson and the guys at Black House, so I have no idea what he's capable of teaching. His movies are a joke, but his martial arts credentials appear to be the exact opposite.

With that said, I think that Jones made the right choice because you do run the risk of alienating your current coaching staff.

His movies are documentaries. It has been said that he told close friends that he doesn't do MMA because, and I quote "It just wouldn't be fun if the same person held every belt in every weight class in the UFC."

Since Super HW isn't currently in the UFC, I guess he'd only own one belt.

Maybe they could arrange a Rampage vs. Seagal fight. They could set it up as a MMA star turned actor vs an actor turned MMA star.

Now if we were talking Jean Claude Van Damme, then we all would have to put the joking aside. I've seen Blood Sport.

He also claimed he was "Impervious to Chokes" while filming Under Siege.

One of the stuntmen on the movie Gene Lebell (a Judo Black Belt) disagreed and offered to show Seagal just how wrong he was.

Movie execs were left a little worried when their star was lying unconscious on the floor just a few seconds later.

I highly doubt he was being serious.
