Real Steve Seagal vs.Bas Rutten Exhibition in NYC ON 09/07/13
It has been amusing to see all the hilarious threads about Steven Seagal posted here. And the You-Tube video where Bas Rutten says he would "fold Seagal up" was a riot. Steven wasnt mad, and I, John Parks, one of Steve's new promotors is not at all angry either. We all can enjoy a good laugh. But now for the facts:
1-In a private video I have not posted on You Tube yet, you can see that Bas really has a lot of respect for Steven and he even admits that since he has retired, and is not in half the shape he used to be in, Steven would be very, very tough to beat because Seagals style as we know is based on deception, angles, and things that do not fade with age. Bas is a straight power guy. Sadly that DOES fade with age.
2-Because a new challenger to the MMA wants to make their big debut in NYC, they came to me to get Bas and Steven together for a long awaited exhibition cage match. Because of their ages, it will be scheduled for 8 rounds, but both agree, no matter who wins, it would never go past 2 rounds.
3-Bas, is seeking out the guidance of Judo Gene Labell, believe it or not and he really wants to learn that choke hold. He admits he never saw Steven that immobilized before which tells me that Bas is slightly worried.
STEVE:People dont realize that Bas and I know each other for years, go to parties together and all this is no ones business. But I do say with all respect to Bas's tremendous power, he has never been spun like I will spin him and the finger breaks alone and the submission "tricks" I know will completely neutralize the awesome power of Bas, with all due respect to his great talent." Then after a little chuckle , steven goes.."To tell the truth, I can see no other outcome except for Bas to wind up being rolled up in the fetal position clutching his sides. People dont realize the Internal force I generate when I move."
Bas: Steven. You will see only one thing during the fight. When we come together and touch gloves I will be smiling. When they wake you up in the hospital, I will be right there....smiling."
Myself: Well Bas, I hear that Steven is going to be using many more sparring partners than usual for his randori and all sparring and training. He is taking this very seriously.
Bas:(Obviously kidding) Well, I notice there has been a shortage of Japanese midgets , and claims of missing dwarves from circuses all over the country as this is the size guy Steven likes to spar with. So yes, he can handle 1 or 200 at a time.
In fact, Bas continued, "Steven and I dont need the money. I'd like to just brawl in the street with no gloves,padding or rules. That's my kind of fight. Maybe I will mention that to Steven and see how he feels about that." Another chuckle.
Myself:To Bas- What do you think of the claim that in his prime, Steven could have beaten both you, Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson and Bolo Yueng in one night as long as all of you came at him one at a time?
Bas starts choking on his beer and fizz shoots out of his nose.He then shits all over himself, pukes, rolls up into a ball, and passes out. We conclude the interview.
So folks if you are in NYC in September, dont miss this exciting event at Madison Square Garden. This event will sell out quick. We are going now to approach Steven to find out about how he feels that Bas only wants to fight with no gloves or rules....
And remember, this fight can be over with one good **** or a healthy fart. Maybe even a wedgie or two, so dont even blink when the Bas takes on the greatest Internal Martial Arts master in the world!
DISCLAIMER: This event is subject to the approval of the Stae Athletic Commission, and the stupidity of people who would actually believe that a Demi-God like Steven Seagal would get into a ring and hurt his poor dear out of shape hero and friend, Bas Rutten just to get some cheap publicity.
