1990’s action movie star Steven Seagal has been appearing in the corner of UFC Middleweight champ Anderson Silva at big fights for a couple of years now. Yesterday he took it up a notch and sparred with Silva’s teammate Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante after the UFC 148 media open workouts at the XS nightclub from the Encore in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Seagal also spoke with MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani who got him to open up just a little bit about any “secret moves” that Seagal might have “taught” Silva for Saturday’s title fight against Chael Sonnen.
