Its really easy to solve this issue one is great and one thinks he is..see how easy was that..
As far as "comparing"Steven Seagal and Chuck Norris,that is something that is impossible for any of us to really do.Myself,I'd take Steven Seagal,but that is simply because I'd take him over anyone else.They are both great martial artists.If it came to picking which one's movie I'd go to see if I could only see one,that's simple,Steven Seagal.No other martial arts/action star comes close.His intensity and screen presence are unequaled.The part about people saying Chuck Norris would have beaten Bruce Lee because he had competition experience and Bruce Lee had no fighting experience is ridiculous.That's like people saying that Steven Seagal has no fighting experience because he hasn't competed in tournaments.Bruce Lee and Steven Seagal had to fight FOR REAL many,many times in their lives,especially when they started teaching,and Steven Seagal to this day still gets people trying to test him,so I think that qualifies much more as fighting experience than scoring points in a competition.Chuck Norris was an undefeated world middleweight karate champion.
He is familiar with every martial arts style out there.
He even trained juijutsu with the Grazies and Machados.
We shouldn´t compare to aging martial arts masters. Chuck is even over 10 years older than Seagal.
But to be honest with you, Chuck Norris was and will always be in great shape. 9 years ago I saw him on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno.
He showed his body and his body was amazing. At the time he was already 58 years old. We all know that Seagal is overweight!
Seagal was without a doubt the far bigger box office star. Norris never was successful at the box office. But he made some good movies such as "Code of Silence"(Director:Andrew Davis) and "Lone Wolfe McQuade").
I think it´s childish to compare a 67 year old former Martial Arts champion with a 55 year old Aikido Master!
But there are many people out there who said that Chuck Norris would have beaten his friend Bruce Lee in a real fight because Norris fought in tournaments and Bruce Lee was an actor with no real life fighting experience!
