    Problem? Anderson Silva Trolling the Media with Seagal?

    Apparently Anderson Silva thinks there's a problem, at least with his image among American MMA fans.

    According to Brazilian MMA Magazine "Vale Tudo Portal" (Porto do Vale Tudo), the appearances with Seagal were all part of an orchestrated campaign to raise Silva's profile in the US.

    From the latest issue of the magazine:

    "The declaration of the champion Anderson Silva (Seagal helping him with the amazing kick) was contemplated with humor by the fans, who knows that the actor was at most twice with the Brazilian.

    The approach between the two was actually a marketing maneuver planned by the agent of Anderson, Jorge Joinha, to give more visibility to it's champion in the American media. The plan worked very well in the first stage, the problem was in the wrong dose and reached the absurdity of assigning a brilliant victory by the biggest name in the MMA of all time to a "Master of Hollywood" who never climbed in the ring. The worst of all is that Seagal, perhaps influenced by some of his films, believed and even stated in several interviews after the fight that "He (Anderson) did everything the way i taught him and made me very proud". For God's sake..."

    Why Silva felt that Seagal would help him get positive exposure must be chalked up to a misunderstanding for how well liked the overweight, energy drink selling, guitar playing, Dalai Lama up-to-sucking, CIA-story-fabricating, pants-defecating, former "Action" star is in the USA; at least amongst genuine fight fans.

    Duh!

    I knew it. I was figuring it was either a bizarre sense of humor thing particular to Brazilians, or Silva just didn't understand the situation because of the language barrier.

    Silva's agent probably tried to get Chuck Norris first, but the personal appearance fee was too much.

    Probably signed a new movie deal with the newfound karma.

    By the way, remember there are also videos of Seagal training :rolleyes: with Lyoto Machida.

    Remember how, contrary to Anderson, Lyoto just couldn't hold a straight face (looking like "WTF, for realz?"). Silva on the other hand, giving props to Seagal with complete sincerity and whatever.

    This is why Silva is such a genius. Whatever is happening, he can roll with it like butter. And I can respect that.

    Troll score: 9/10 (minus 1, cause you're still a dirty troll)


    EDIT: So is Silva going to be Seagal's sidekick on Lawman now? Going vroom vroom in the backseat of the cop car. Making Brazillian side dishes for the cookouts and whatnot.

    Is there a language barrier? Some claim that Silva speaks English fluently and only uses an interpreter to **** with the media. Which would be awesome if it was true.

    If Silva found a way to channel Bruce Lee's spirit, we'd have a classic troll job!

    So there is video of Seagal teaching the front kick before the fight. Anderson performs the kick and knocks out Belfort. Silva credits Seagal and a lot of people are mad. Why?
