‘Judo’ Gene LeBell interview part 3: Ali vs. Inoki, BJJ vs. catch wrestling, Steven Seagal

In the third and final part of our in-depth interview with “Judo” Gene LeBell, ProMMAnow.com’s Daniel Theodore talks to Uncle Gene about his thoughts on today’s UFC/MMA fighters, how he came to referee the Muhammed Ali vs. Antonio Inoki match, and the differences and similarities in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and catch wrestling. In closing, Uncle Gene responds to the question of the alleged incident between he and action movie star Steven Seagal and what would happen in a hypothetical match between Seagal and LeBell’s protege Ronda Rousey.

“If brains were measured in Cadillacs, he [Steven Seagal] would be on roller skates.”  -”Judo” Gene LeBell
