OK, I’ve been having fun with this one. While researching all-things Seagal I happened upon this video:
Man oh man but how much would you pay to have been at that party! Here’s the story:
“At a party in my home in Miami in 1997, Van Damme was tired of Seagal claiming he could kick his ass so he offered Seagal outside into my back yard,” Contactmusic quoted him [Stallone] as saying.
“Van Damme was too strong. Seagalnone of it,” Stallone said. (ANI)
- 7th dan in Aikido; also studied Shito-ryu karate
- Never fought professionally
Jean-Claude Van Damme:
- Shotokan karate
- Muay Thai
- Kick boxing
- Retired from fighting with an 18 – 1 record
Given that Steven Seagal thinks he’s a clairvoyant god, perhaps he foresaw his own butt getting kicked and decided to back down?
