MMA Fighting caught up with Steven Seagal following Saturday night's UFC 135 main event to discuss Jon Jones win over Quinton Jackson. Seagal talked about being more impressed with Jackson than Jones, his words of advice for Jones, why he believes Jones wasn't himself tonight and whether he wants to see Jones fight Anderson Silva.

For his part, Segal spared no effort in elbowing aside Art Davie for entry into the MMA Asshole Hall of Fame.

"I thought there were some very poor performances," Seagal said to  MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani. "Didn't you?"

In response to the idea that altitude was to blame for those performances, Seagal said, "We can't be saying that. If you come here, get into shape, get out there and bring it. I mean, come on. That's a bulls--- excuse."

Seagal included Jones in the group of fighters who didn't perform at their best.

When Helwani brought up the fact that UFC commentator Joe Rogan was impressed with Jones' performance, the humble Aikido master explained "I'm a fighter, I've fought all my life." Then Seagal added sarcastically "You can listen to him (Rogan). Maybe he knows more than me. I don't know."

Seagal also tried to take credit for the front kicks his "friend" Jones used vs Rampage. "Him and I did talk about that," Seagal crowed, "but he hasn't learned it yet."

 An old man trying so hard to remain relevant off the coattails of legitimate fighters.  The real trolls are Anderson Silva and Machida.

what's with the shooting glasses Steve?

The generic response of "I dont know why he didnt let his hands go" shows he's still rather clueless to mma.

The shooting glasses and turned cap are weird. Your comment in regards the hands issue doesn't make sense. That WAS RAMPAGE'S problem. He didn't let his hands go. You can't depend on your hand, and then not throw them.

I agree with him in that Rampage's head movement was really impressive. If only he let his hands go , but i fear he was too cautious about counters.

man he is weird and doesn't seem open minded, Ariel simply mentions Joes's opinion and just because its different than his he gets all defensive? My way or the Highway I guess...lol.

 Alot of insecurity here lashing out at master Seagal.

He knows what hes talking about and why it bothers so many of you is beyond me.

For being a "Master", I didn't see his evaluation of the fight being as sharp as it could have been.

The two key factors to the fight was Jones' constant leg kicks to keep Rampage out of punching distance, and Rampage had amazingly effective take down defense, which is what prevented Jones from throwing his ass around the cage like he has done with everyone else.
