Executive Decision 2: Training with Seagal (again?)

Posted: November 16, 2010 in Marketing, PR, UFC

Not too long ago, I looked at the fact that Anderson “The Spider” Silva had started training aikido with Steven “Lawman” Seagal. At the time, I was speechless. I could not make a serious comment (for fear of neck snapping) or a joke (for fear of tummy rubbing after effects of laughter).  The result, as you may recall, for Silva’s efforts was a 5 round beating before he narrowly defeated the most hated man in MMA, Chael Sonnen.

Well, now another MMA star has followed the path of the Spider.   In fact, it is one of his training partners.  Former light heavyweight champion, Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida has turned to Seagal to learn the ways of the force.  Let’s hope for his sake, the lessons are more fruitful in his battle against “Rampage” Jackson than they were for the middleweight champion….
