    Can someone explain to me why just about everyone on Sherdog craps on Steven Seagal when he helps a fighter out? I don't think any other Martial artist from a single disciple gets treated as disrespectfully as Seagal does by the MMA community. Gene Lebell (legit Judo artist) gets nothing but love for helping out fighters, so does Joe Rogan (legit TKD artist) but yet Seagal who is a legit Martial Artist gets so much hate when he tries to help out fighters. What's even crazier is that several fighters have already come out and said that Seagal was a useful teacher. So why doEs the MMA community continue to disrespect and dismiss Seagal? I think we need to chill out in the MMA community with the Seagal hate, it's making us look uneducated and narrow minded.

    Because aikido is a bullshit martial arts for mma. Their philosphy is to avoid fighting, how is that gonna help a pro fighter smash his opponent?

    Also seagal movies suck

    For people who didn't read the block of text. I'll paraphrase TS' thoughts for you:

    "Seagal, is cool guy. He trains fighters and doesn't afraid of anything"

    Do you really need to ask why people dislike Seagel? beyond the quality of his films a quick net search will bring up a barrow load of unsavoury allegations.

    Pack mentality yes, that's part of it, regardless of all the shit that people talk, I happen to know that SS is the real deal, has accomplished more in his life than most people will ever dream of...the idiots will praise the skills of guys like AS, and in the same breath discredit him for seeking out SS for training, makes no sense, like most things people do....Now all of that being said SS does come off like an arrogant dick, it appears he has bought into his own Bullshit....this opens him up for some sniping.....

    Other than the constant records of him being a douchebag to everyone around him constantly, I think I'll take that he spends his life devoted to a mystic hoo ha martial art, but used it to beat his wife. I think that's plenty.

    He is basically the embodiment of why people were led to think TMAs are garbage.

    Seagal gets crapped on because people on here know he's basically leeching off of real fighters to promote his name. He's a martial (con) artist.

    And Aikido is a choreographed martial art for the movies, not real fighting. Their schools don't even spar. All they do is fight against demo dummies lol!

    This was what Bas Rutten said about Aikido in MMA:

    This was what happened when Aikido met a real martial art (wrestling):

    1. Aikido is a great martial art. They keep it "martial" by not competing. This is fine, but SOME (not all) Aikido practitioners are a bit delusional that because of this they are deadly, can and will annihilate anyone in a real fight not this "ufc fake shit".

    I am sure Segal is knowledgeable but he seems a little unrealistic about his ability to kill people with ease.

    2. The absence of competing in Aikido has taken away some of the game plan and technique development. They use mostly Ancient original techniques, that are great but are not constantly modified to be improved.

    3. Finally, it is hard to take the badass pizza man ex CIA agent who is trying to lay low but neighborhood gangs push him to go back to his killing ways. Even though he is legit, it is hard to take him serious with those terrible movies and appearing in them. (I'm sure they made him lotsa $$ but sorry those movies all suck ).
