Anderson Silva Is Training With Steven Seagal

UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva has employed an unlikely training partner to help with preparation for his upcoming UFC 117 bout against Chael Sonnen: action movie star and martial artist Steven Seagal. A video depicting the 7th-dan Aikido black belt instructing Silva in the ways of Aikido is currently making the rounds and requires a double take in order to actually believe what you are seeing.

In the video, Seagal informs the interviewer that he is helping Silva because they are friends and because he respects “The Spider’s” demeanor; he also mentions that Chael Sonnen has nothing to offer Silva in the way of a challenge.
