Van Damme, Seagal nearly came to blows in the 90s: StalloneFebruary 5th, 2008 - 5:22 pm ICT by admin
Washington, February 5 (ANI): Action heroes Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal nearly came to fist-fighting once in the late Nineties to prove who was more tough, says fellow star Sylvester Stallone.
The Rocky Balboa star has even revealed that he hosted a party in 1997 to settle the row over who was stronger between Van Damme and Seagal.
“At a party in my home in Miami in 1997, Van Damme was tired of Seagal claiming he could kick his ass so he offered Seagal outside into my back yard, Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
“Seagal made his excuses and left. But Van Damme, who was berserk, tracked him down at a nightclub and offered him out again,” he added.
Though the fight did not ensue the altercation between the two stars, Stallone is sure that Seagal would fall deficient had the brawl taken place.
“Van Damme was too strong. Seagal wanted none of it,” Stallone said. (ANI)
