What's Helwani on about "Really" "That's a bit disrespectful".

Is he just stirring a pot or we don't know something about Seagal that he knows?

Hes done a hell of a lot more then Seagull... Hes helped promote the sport through being a real fighter who has gone into movies unlike the fake POS Seagaull!

And WTF is up with Ariel acting like the truth about Seagull is disrespectful Seagull is an idiot!

 Wow @Helwani.... I usually dig on his interviews but that really rubbed me the wrong way. The only thing awkward or uncomfortable about thaw was his comments back at Cung.

Oh, Cung has done waaaaaaaaaay more than Segal will ever do.

 This pissed me off. His bitch ass only came to cover MMA when pro wrestling didn't wan't him and is just trying to create his own fame. Fuck that dude

Wow. I have always thought-at least since he came on the scene-that Ariel was the best mma journalist bar none. I am shocked at this. I don't recall him taking this tone or supporting Segal like this before, wtf?

First time I have ever seen Ariel be outright disrespectful. I know he had some shit with Sapp where he might have been out of line, with Diaz he was just owned, Rampage was being a fuckin' moron picking on him, but here Ariel just comes off as a dick. He acts surprised that someone doesn't bow down to a TMA actor? He says he is disappointed and its going to be a little awkward between us....Cung Le was very respectful and was nice enough to give him an interview and Ariel was very disrespectful, if you can't respect the mans answer then why ask? Fuck him.

Maybe Helwani thinks he can advance his career by kissing up to Seagal. He's barking up the wrong tree man.

I won't say that Le has done less or more but to call Seagal "fake" is inaccurate. You may not like aikido, but the guy has some impressive credentials in the art. Phone Post

Ariel has been riding Seagal's nuts for a while. I used to think he was trolling the way he brought him up in interviews, but now he's being super rude about it..

 I agree with every word in this quote. Including "and", "the", and "a".

The whole Seagal thing is just getting sickening. The guy is an absolute joke, and his involvement with MMA is basically troll baiting.

I honestly dont know whats worse, the fact I'm even wasting time talking about the guy, or the fact that some people are so insanely stupid as to believe he actually has taught anyone anything of value in relation to martial arts.

I really just need to start ignoring him and hoping he'll go away, and be forgotten.

EDIT: Respect given to Cung Le for being honest about Seagal, especially since he probably has more in jeopardy with his movie career than any other fighter does.

lol @ that ignorance that Cung le has done more in martials world than Seagal ..please!! Seagal was teaching n training before cung le was born...be realistic


in perspective to mma perhaps Cung le but in a broader spectrum of overall martials...Cung cant touch Seagal..dude trained in the old school of hard knocks in Japan with the cream of the crop in aikido as well as judo

Helwani has continually got more obnoxious, but still does good 1 on 1 interviews but that was just ridiculous. Everyone knows segal is riding coat tails, heleani acted like a douche. Phone Post

Seagal never teached or trained MMA fighters. What he did in '70s in regard to him throwing around willing students (as seen in clips) has no influence on today's MMA.

Dead Again -  Some of you......

Helwani obviously wasn't being serious when he said it was disrespectful. Some of you are a little dense.

I thought it was kinda obvious that Helwani was making a joke with the whole Sensei Segal thing. He should probably have let it go as soon as he realized Cung Le didn't get it though, but whatever. Live interviews are hard.

At least he managed to troll some fools on UG with it...

 Segal for all his accomplishments needs to leave mma alone he isn't adding anything to it and looked silly doing that slap shit with fejao/ sorry imo its just silly.
