It seems like Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey, wants to rival Chael Sonnen for the spot of biggest trash-talker in MMA. First, Kim Kardashian, then Olympic gold medal swimmer Michael Phelps, and now actor and “martial arts expert,” Steven Segal. Is no one safe from the mouth of Rousey?
As everyone knows, Rousey is an Olympic medalist in Judo, so it make sense that she’s a big fan of Judo master and stuntman Gene LeBell. Steven Segal recently denied a 2002 report that LeBell but him to sleep, and at the same time losing his bowels. He was overheard calling LeBell a “pathological scumbag liar” and “demented.” Of course, this didn’t sit well with Rousey:
If he says anything bad about Gene to my face, I’d have to make him crap his pants a second time. Obviously, the guy’s a liar. He told everybody he taughtthat kick. I mean, seriously, the guy doesn’t have a very good track record. He’s Aikido. I mean, Aikido’s cool, but who in MMA does Aikido? Who has an Aikido background? ‘So and so coming to the cage is a world champion with a background in Aikido.’ You never heard that once. Have you heard that once? That’s for a reason. It’s because Gene LeBell would destroy Steven Seagal again, even as old as they are now. If they had like a super master-master division, Gene would still throw it down, man. I’d still put my money on him to this day.”
Oh that wacky Ronda! What will she say next?
