“Glaube comes from karate and I feel honoured to have him in our gym. It’s a privilege. I think he’s the best striker in Brazil. He was the man who represented Brazil abroad. Everybody in the gym is his fan. Glaube is living in Curitiba and has being with us for two months. We already were fans before knowing him but after that we became even more. The guy is na extraordinary person, very humble. He has so much to help us at UFC”.

 

 

Mauricio “Shogun” Rua has trained with K-1 fighter Glaube Feitosa – Karate Kyokushin style specialist – at UDL to take on Lyoto Machida at UFC 113 on May 13th. Their first meet ocurred at UFC 104 past October and “The Dragon” won his first title defense by unanimous decision in a fight that went on stand-up through the five rounds, something that will probably happen once again due to their respective origin in martial arts. Will Kyokushin training help Shogun to figure out how to handle with Machida Shotokan knowledge?
