Guilherme Cruz: Is Wanderlei training with you guys for Cung Le?

Raphael Cordeiro: He’s here, he’s practically living here. He’s done a marathon here, he’s pouring his heart out on the trainings. We’re having good results on the trainings with Werdum, Babalu, Munoz, Dida, quality guys. And he’s doing great. We’re much confident because of the work we’ve been doing here.

GC: Before Wand vs. Cung Le, Mark Munoz, another fighter from your team, fights Chris Leben. How is he doing on the trainings?

RC: He’s on fire. Mark is super dedicated, he’s a good guy, special, who’s making some room for himself in the organization. He’s one of the guys who trains the most, he’s our ‘geek’ (laughs). Sometimes he overtrains… But sometimes it’s good to make a mistake by trying to hard than not trying hard enough, right?

GC: And what about Werdum’s return? There were rumors about him signing with UFC…

RC: He’s back to the trainings, he’s making everybody laugh. He’ll probably fight in December… He’s talking to the UFC, and maybe they come up with something for December

I don't know how excited I am for Werdum's return to the octagon. Outside of his subbing of Fedor, he's just not an exciting fighter IMO

His take downs looked weak against Overeem as well. Not sure how well he will fare against UFC hws if his takedowns are lacking and he is a submission fighter...

Agreed, Werdum is a sleeper 2 watch sum times, but i would like 2 see him fight sum of the UFC HW's. Obviously not JDS tho!!

Not the best takedowns, but his stand-up has been fairly decent for awhile.

Outlanded Overeem, and beat the shit out of Gonzaga.

I think he'll do alright. Hw wrestlers will take him down and get subbed, guys like Barry and Struve will probably be able to get pulled in to his world championship guard.

If Berry keep fighting like he has, he won't be around to fall into Werdum's guard

Fabricio is BACKKKKKKK! He is a A-list heavyweight & deserves to be in the UFC. Although his gameplan for his fight with Overeem was terrible (lay on back) he still SUBMITTED FEDOR!) I aint ever forgettin dat.
