Jackson, who starred in The A-Team remake, is looking to get his Ultimate Fighting Championship career back on track following his recent cage smackdown at the hands of Rashad Evans, but he will have his work cut out when he meets Lyoto Machida on Saturday (20Nov10) in Detroit, Michigan.
Seagal has been hired to train the Brazilian brawler.
Jackson lost to Evans in just three rounds and he blames his lacklustre performance on film work as the new B.A. Baracus.
He tells TV show Extra, "This fight was, like, so much pressure. I never had this much pressure because the movie was coming out. I really wanted to beat him.
"I almost lost my career just for this movie. It was weird I was going through the same thing B.A. was going through, where I didn't want to fight no more."
The mixed martial arts tough guy scrapped a December (09) fight with Rashad Evans at UFC 107 to take on the action movie role, but he has the fighter in his sights for his comeback.
The 31 year old is in talks to headline a UFC battle with Evans in 2010.
Jackson has been spotted on the Vancouver, Canada set of the film and one reporter for the Vancouver Sun has seen the fighter sporting the chains Mr. T wore as the tough-talking TV character.
The much-anticipated new film features Bradley Cooper as Templeton 'Faceman' Peck and Liam Neeson as A-Team leader John 'Hannibal' Smith.
Jackson reportedly won the role of Baracus after a casting fight with rapper and Terminator Salvation star Common. He recently confirmed on late-night U.S. TV he was in the running for the role.
According to website MMAFrenzy.com, the A-Team role is the reason why Jackson has postponed a December (09) fight with Rashad Evans at UFC 107.
