If you have something negative to say about "Judo" Gene LeBell, make sure you don't say it in front of Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey.

Especially if your name is Steven Seagal.

The Aikido master denied a 2002 report that he was put to sleep by the longtime stuntman and champion martial artist, who allegedly made Seagal empty his bowels on the way out. He referred to LeBell as a "pathological scumbag liar" who's possibly "demented."

In a recent sit-down with MMA Interviews, Rousey blasts Seagal for not having "a very good track record."

"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 taught Anderson Silva that 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."

Rousey has her first 135-pound title defense lined up for August 18, 2012 from the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California, where she's scheduled to face off against former division queenpin Sarah Kaufman on Showtime.
