Actor and eventual coach Spider, Seagal says that people who consider Chris Weidman favorite has no martial arts experience.
Indeed virtually impossible to be imagined for months ago, Anderson Silva has been considered the underdog by many UFC fighters in the fight against Chris Weidman, scheduled for next Saturday. Even elected by Dana White as the greatest athlete to have fought in the UFC, the ability to defend Falls Champion, considered their weakest point by analysts, coincidentally is the main weapon used by the challenger.
Weidman is known to have a higher level of wrestling, which may complicate life for Silva. Disgusted with the "favoritism" of Weidman, Steven Seagal, renowned actor and occasional coach Anderson, decided to express their discontent with what he considers "the views of people who never fought," as stated to MMA Fighting.
"Where I come from, people often say that talk is cheap. What matters is how things happen in the Octagon. Anderson has experienced very difficult times. Against Chael Sonnen when he fought seriously injured, was not easy. It was very difficult. And I think there's no way to be much more difficult than that. If I think will be the toughest fight of his career? No. But Weidman is a great kid, has a very complete game and is very strong. We are living in a very strange time. There are a lot of people who have no experience in martial arts and they are talking as if they had done it for 50 years, and talking as if they were masters. There are a lot of people who are talking shit. There are a lot of people who have huge egos and huge mouths, like to talk and say a lot of things. And then there are people who are really highly credentialed people who have been in martial arts for a long time. Certainly, we want to hear them. "
