Seagal is fat but he really is an awesome martial artist. 7th degree blackbelt in Aikido. And Seagal trained in Japan with the old school Japanese teachers. Those guys are rough.

You can't go from martial arts to boxing.
Boxing IS a martial art silly. Martial meaning War or fight and Art meaning expression.

Martial Art means "Expression of War" or "Expression of fighting." Boxing is a type of combat and the science of fist fighting. Plus,punching is a huge part of most martial arts systems.

If he is such a great boxer why does he not do it? He makes under a million a fight like all ufc fighers.

Those guys are not tough. anymore. perhaps long ago. aikido is a joke and has been for some time. Training in Japan doesn't mean anything. Seagal trained there, married a daughter of a big shot aikido guy and was given a dojo. it did not do well. he went to USA and met James Coburn and was helped into the movies. PR movie maker machinery started. people think he is/was a bad ass. doesn't make it so.
He is and always has been a *****. he is a fat slob. a phony. went to the tibetan buddhists and was declared a reincarnated Tookul, (sp). give me a ****ing break. this man is more delusional than someone telling me they are Popye the sailor man.

No they are not rough.

Seagal has never fought any body of any note. The guy is a talented martial "artist" not a fighter. We've had this running in an MMA thread all week.

Why?

He lost his boxing debut and didn't make any noise in the Muay Thai world which he says is his main discipline. MMA suited him

What have you done with your life that gives you the standing to mock Seagal for the things he has done with his?

Pacquiao lost too in his early years, what does that have to do with anything? Pacquiao is def a different fighter now, so is Anderson. Anderson's striking is just insanity.

He earns much more than a million per fight. Not tens of millions, but he will have cleared better than three million dollars tonight. He gets a cut of the PPV buys, which forms the bulk of his purse and which is not listed in his disclosed pay.
