UFC God Anderson Silva Thought Steven Seagal Was Joking When 'Under Siege' Star Claimed He Invented the Kick That Won Silva the 2011 Championship

Over the years, Steven Seagal has found himself as the center of attention on several occasions but mostly for the wrong reasons. After being accused of several s*xual misconduct allegations and many actors claiming that he was a difficult person to work with, Seagal has witnessed his career falling apart despite once being a huge star.


But apart from all the disturbing things that the Under Siege star has been accused of, the fact that made him the laughingstock of the internet was his absurd claims about various subjects. One of his claims involved him taking the credit for UFC legend Anderson Silva’s iconic win, which was later brushed off by the UFC champion.

Anderson Silva brushed off Steven Seagal’s claims about inventing the front kick

Back in 2011, one of the most iconic moments in UFC occurred after middleweight champion Anderson Silva knocked out Vitor Belfort in the first round with a front kick to the face. But it didn’t take long for Steven Seagal to take the full credit, as the actor claimed that he was the one that taught Silva the kick, who was considered the best mixed martial artist at that time. Although at first, SIlva felt that the Under Siege star might be joking, the UFC champion politely clarified that Seagal had nothing to do with the front kick. He said,

“Seagal is a good man. No coach. No train me. Is a good man. Is a good person. That’s it.”

However, unlike Silva, not many in the UFC realm are so polite regarding the controversial actor, including Ronda Rousey, who isn’t fond of the Out of Justice star.

Ronda Rousey claimed to beat the crap out of Steven Seagal

Back in the 90s. on the sets of Out of Justice, Steven Seagal allegedly claimed that his aikido training has made the actor invulnerable to choking. However, the 58-year-old Gene LeBell allegedly succeeded in leaving Seagal unconscious with his choke and making him soil his pants. Although the actor denied the story, LeBell’s student Ronda Rousey defended her mentor and even claimed to beat the crap out of the actor. She said,


“if he says anything bad about Gene to my face, I would be forced to do something. I would have to make him crap his pants a second time.”

Following Seagal’s absurd claims in addition to several allegations against the Under Siege star, it’s no wonder why he lost his stardom despite once being the biggest name in the industry.
