Another Black House fighter, another front-kick knockout victory and another claim by Steven Seagal that he trained that fighter on that particular kick.

At UFC 129, Lyoto Machida used a front kick to knockout out Randy Couture that was very reminiscent of the kick that Anderson Silva used to put away Vitor Belfort at UFC 126.

If you recall, in postfight interviews, Steven Seagal was more than happy to take credit for showing Silva that kick.

After Machida's victory on Saturday, Seagal spoke to Inside MMA, again taking credit for the knockout kick.

"It's a little variation (on the Silva kick), I've been working with Lyoto very, very hard on a lot of different stuff. He did exactly what we've been working on and he did it well," Seagal said.

The good folks over at have uncovered a video that was uploaded to YouTube back in November of 2009 that shows Machida in a training video demonstrating the kick that he used to KO Couture.

Interesting stuff.
