The Natural and The Axe Murderer

Posted: August 15, 2007 by Xtreme Couture MMA in randy couture, wanderlei silva

MMA legend Wanderlei Silva hit the gym in Vegas today. He’s in town for the next two weeks from the Fizogen-Xtreme Couture in Wellington, Florida. Wanderlei is helping Randy to get ready for Gabriel Gonzaga.

Here’s what Randy had to say about working out with the Brazilian legend, “It’s great to have him in the gym. I’m anxious to pick his brain. To explore his training tactics and techniques. I’m also looking forward to building a rapport with him going forward. We had some good goes today. We were working out of half guard and the mount.  He’s very tough in both positions.”


Wanderlei says he’s glad to be here in Vegas with “The Natural”. And that he’s impressed with Randy. “He’s strong on the ground. He has very good jiu jitsu and excellent stamina. He’s stronger than I thought.”

Wanderlei even made a prediction for the main event at UFC 74. “Randy is good for this fight. He’s ready. Very good boxing.  He will win.”

As for his next fight, Silva tells us he’ll be stepping back into the Octagon on December 29th. He hopes it is against Chuck Liddell.

After the UFC 74, you can catch Wanderlei at the Fizogen-Xtreme Couture MMA Training Center in Wellington, Florida.

  26. Brian Morris says:

    It’s good that Wanderlei Silva is starting with Chuck Liddell. If he fought Rampage, he would take the title instantly because Rampage can’t get into the head of The Axe Murderer. If Wanderlei beat Chuck and then fought Dan Henderson for the UFC title, it would be the Ultimate Pride rematch.

  27. Djair Cabral says:

    Meu caro amigo wand sou seu fã, mais gostaria de saber porque está apoiando o couture e não o brasileiro napão?
    Abraço!

  28. Time to get down to Wellington and check out the big dogs!

    Want to start your private office arms race right now?

    I just got my own USB rocket launcher :-) Awsome thing.

    Plug into your computer and you got a remote controlled office missile launcher with 360 degrees horizontal and 45 degree vertival rotation with a range of more than 6 meters – which gives you a coverage of 113 square meters round your workplace.
    You can get the gadget here: http://tinyurl.com/2qul3c

    Check out the video they have on the page.

    Cheers
