Why Jon Jones kept 'strange' Steven Seagal out of locker room

source: jimrome.com

"You never know what people's motives are, especially with a guy who coaches Lyoto Machida. Machida is definitely someone I want to fight in my near future and I just didn't want to share my psychology with him or anything that would put me at a disadvantage in the future.

"It was just confusing, really, to bring in someone you don't work with at all to give you last second advice, it can actually be more detrimental than helpful.

"I don't know how he got my number. He was like 'Hey listen, I think you're gonna win the fight, and when I predict someone's gonna win I'm never wrong and there's some things I wanna go over with you.' It was all very strange.

"I don't wanna bad mouth him too bad, he had good intentions, I think. But yeah, I definitely wasn't having Steven Seagal in my corner. I could see if it was Jet Li or something, Jet Li would be pretty cool. I would definitely take that call, for sure."

Same here. Seagal is obviously nosing into the top fighters asses to make himself look relevant, and also to steal the credibility of their successes for himself.

Holy crap, he trained Nino Schembri way back when !"Then I told him I had heard that he had a student who he thought could defeat Sakuraba. He said he did. I said if he needed help putting the match together I may be able to help him but his guy might be asked to get some experience before going to Japan."

lol @ disrespect at not wanting Seagal hanging onto his career.Jones got where he is at 100% with out Seagal, why would he need a peptalk in his locker room before his fight?

Seagal is such a joke. I dont know how anyone could take him seriously at this point.

I blame Ariel. It's like feeing wild animals. Keep putting out food and they keep coming back.Ariel keeps putting a camera and mic in Seagal's face so he keeps coming back for the attention.

You still think Jones sent a spy in, to feed him information, just so he could pass it straight on to Zuffa? That actually makes sense to you somehow?

Definitely like Jones better after hearing this. Had to laugh at him saying he's not sure how Seagal got his number in the first place.
