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”

    Dana White would probably send over the entire UFC to help him train for Fedor if it meant he could actually beat Fedor.

    Because fedor does not want to be in the ufc. So these are the only type of fights he can get. DEAL WITH IT!

    It’s not about if Nogueira submitted Fedor or not. It’s about having someone with good Jujitsu and that has fought Fedor before. Plus training with Nogueira is very inspiring for a fighter, even though he didn’t beat Fedor he is a Legend…so stop hating

    “Yes, I am stupid. Why would I want to train with the most legendary jitz ace to ever fight in the hw division? I mean , throw that in with the fact hes fought my opponent 3 times AND that hes teamed with the most talented fighters in all of MMA and Id have to be mildly retarded to even consider training with him”
