In a video interview Wanderlei Silva invited Mauricio Rua to train together at Wand Fight Team facility in Las Vegas but “Shogun” says he tends to establish his conditioning and training at his own gym at Universidade da Luta, Curitiba-Brazil. “The Axe Murderer” stated that the UFC light heavyweight champion has become his idol in MMA and Mauricio retributed the admiration and respect, saying:

“Look, I feel very happy. He is a guy who I grew up being inspiried. I even wanted to be him and until today I am a fond of him. He’s a person who placed the heart  on it and this is what makes the MMA events grow even more. Wanderlei is an idol... He and Rafael Cordeiro invited me to train there and I will evaluate and see the chance to train with them. My team is very strong and we have a commitment. I will stay here but perhaps I drop by there”.

 

Shogun is still recovering from knee surgery but is already doing slight trainings in Brazil. He is expected to come back healthy in December to start the preparation for the title defense likely against Rashad Evans, in a fight that is waiting to be oficilized by the UFC yet.

 

So, what would it be better for Mauricio Rua to join Wand Fight Team? This reunion is more interesting for Silva or Rua and i which aspects? Start the discussion, maniacs, and sound off, please.
