Machida flying front kick.avi (via ariesas)
I had originally posted this video as a fanshot, but I think most of you guys dont check the fanposts regularly, and I really wanted this video to be viewed by as many of you Maniacs as possible!
There has been alot of talk lately about Mr. Steven Seagal and whether or not he has been teaching Brazilians crazy front kicks. The man has been getting a ton of attention from media and fans, and I for one dont believe for a second that Seagal is the mastermind behind Silva's and Machida's recent knockouts. I'll admit that I didnt go on youtube and discover this video, but another MMA site had this video posted. I didnt mind sharing because it was uploaded to youtube in November of 2009 for everyone to see.
Anyways like I said, this is a video of Machida in 2009 giving a lesson on his flying front kick that KOd Randy, and ultimately retired him. Unless Seagal is the one holding the camera and shouting out instructions, than I think this video shows that no, Seagal did not teach Machida a flying front kick.
