Werdum: Minotauro Nogueira will help me to submit Fedor
Strikeforce Heavyweight Fabricio Werdum revealed that he would like to train at Team Nogueira camp before his fight against Fedor “The Last Emperor” Emelianenko. Werdum is a keen admirer of Minotauro Nogueira, and he thinks that the legendary fighter is the key to his success against Fedor Emelianenko.
“I don’t care if he’s from other team, if I have the opportunity to train with him, I want to. Nogueira’s Jiu-Jitsu is probably the best in the world. He will help me to submit Fedor.”
Werdum actually fought Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in Pride (lost a Unanimous Decision), but he always stated that “Minota” is one of his idols. Nogeira himself, was more than happy to hear that Werdum is asking for his help:
“If I have the chance, I want to help him to this fight. If we were from the same event there would be no way, but as I am on Strikeforce and he’s on UFC, I don’t mind. If he wants my help, I’ll help him. I do what I can, I’m 100% Minotauro”
