Wanderlei Silva’s MMA trainer Rafael Cordeiro comments on The Axe Murderer’s fight strategy for his upcoming UFC 110 war against Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping. Cordeiro believes that Silva will step into the octagon with the same focus and adrenaline he had back in the Pride days where he was recognized as one of the most scariest middleweight fighters in the world. His brutal knockouts made him stand out amongst other top MMA fighters and Cordeiro sees a comeback for the Brazilian KO artist. Sila is the former IVC light heavyweight champion, former Pride middleweight (205 lb) champion, and the Pride 2003 Middleweight Grand Prix champion.
UFC 110 is scheduled to take place on February 20th at the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia. The main event will headline a heavyweight battle between Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Cain Velasquez, meanwhile Silva vs. Bisping is reserved as the co-main event.
From MMA trainer Rafael Cordeiro:
“I believe the years of war inside the ring made Wanderlei know all the pathway of the adrenaline. Today, we drive this ancient and efficient style for what he does better, that is being himself inside the ring, and more important, do what made him the icon of the martial arts. I believe this is going to be the return of the Mr Pride. The work has been done for this reason and nothing will change its direction. Too many technique sessions, much information, a lot of attacks and defenses not only in Muay Thai, but regarding everything that can happen when mixed up. I’m very happy with this camping because we’re stressing specific workouts without forgetting his cardio. But I repeat, the priority is the technique with 100% of cardio put in the sparrings sessions, where I can active Wanderlei.”
