A while back, retired legend Randy Couture joked that the only way he’d come out of retirement for would be if the UFC offered him a fight against Steven Seagal. Let us repeat that: It was a joke.
 
Couture is a four-time Olympic alternate in Greco Roman wrestling and one of only two UFC fighters in history to hold world championships in two different divisions. Seagal is an actor and aikido master whose success in real fights is officially undocumented, although his on-set altercations have become the stuff of pants-crapping legend.
 
The action star has hung around the best fighter in the world, Anderson Silva, for the past few years, however, all the while claiming to coach Silva. It has been hilarious to observe, and Couture’s joke about fighting Seagal clearly played on Seagal’s many audacious claims about his own fighting and coaching abilities while passing himself off as an MMA expert.
 
Predictably, Seagal didn’t see Couture’s tongue-in-cheek statement as such during a recent interview on The MMA Hour. “I always thought that Randy was my friend and a gentleman. I’m kind of confused as to why he would say that,” Seagal said on the show.
 
“All I can say is, I’m here. Anybody can find me anytime and anyplace. If Randy really wants to fight me, he can fight me anytime he wants. It’ll be for free, and it’ll be some place where there are no witnesses.” When asked if this hypothetical match would take place under MMA rules, Seagal told Ariel Helwani, “I don’t play by rules. That’s not how I fight.”
 
Since Seagal’s poor self awareness and lack of humor allowed for him to talk about him fighting Couture as a real possibility, we thought it would be fun to give “Captain America” a call and get his reaction to it all.

I don't imagine that Randy would need fully functioning wrists to beat Seagal. He didn't need two functioning arms to beat Gabriel Gonzaga...

It means Randy won't seek him out just to fight, but if they happen to bump into each other at a bar or club... it's on.

Haha "it could happen organically I suppose" nice choice of words Randy Phone Post



actually, as someone who just scored in the 97th percentile of the GRE verbal section, I have no idea what the hell that means so I wouldn't call that a "nice choice of words". Just in case I was missing something I looked up organically on dictionary.com. The closest conceivable defintion that could make Randy's statement make any kind of sense is "organically"'s 7th most common meaning, "naturally", i.e. "it could happen naturally I suppose." This still doesn't make much sense, since Randy would have to take volitional action to actually arrange where to show up (and to show up) somewhere where there are no witnesses. Is Randy "dick-tucking" to Sensei Seagal's response to his challenge? If I'm missing something, someone please let me know.

"organically" - defintions below:


organic (????æn?k)







-- adj



1.

of, relating to, derived from, or characteristic of living plants and animals



2.

of or relating to animal or plant constituents or products having a carbon basis



3.

of or relating to one or more organs of an animal or plant



4.

Compare inorganic of, relating to, or belonging to the class of chemical compounds that are formed from carbon: an organic compound



5.

constitutional in the structure of something; fundamental; integral



6.

of or characterized by the coordination of integral parts; organized



7.

developing naturally: organic change through positive education



8.

of or relating to the essential constitutional laws regulating the government of a state: organic law



9.

of, relating to, or grown with the use of fertilizers or pesticides deriving from animal or vegetable matter, rather than from chemicals







-- n



10.

any substance, such as a fertilizer or pesticide, that is derived from animal or vegetable matter



11.

organic food collectively

Yep. When you are a badass you don't have to use words to intimidate.

If they meet in a crowded place, it's all Sensei. What's Couture going to do, shoot a double leg when they're face to face? Sensei by flawless victory, much like his student, Disciple Machida, before him.

I'm sorry but wasn't it PROVEN that both Silva and Machida used techniques that Steven Segal showed them, or at least helped them hone? Its documented on video. I saw a wonderful post by a UGer that shows the before and after.
-Segal showing them a technique in training
-Machida/Silva using that EXACT technique in their subsequent victorious bouts. I sure wish I could find it.
