Rafael Cordeiro is one of the most well known and respected trainers in the MMA industry. Cordeiro has trained the likes of Rafael Dos Anjos, Lyoto Machida, Wanderlei Silva, Fabricio Werdum, and Shogun Rua to name a few.
Following Ronda Rousey’s UFC 193 knockout loss to Holly Holm earlier this month, Rafael Dos Anjos invited Rousey to train at Kings MMA, something that Cordeiro is okay with.
He spoke to MMAFighting about the situatioN:
“For sure, if Ronda one day wants to come and spend time with us over here, no problem. If the fighter comes here with a good mind, an open mind to learn, no problem.”
“It’s hard for me to say something about Ronda Rousey because she has her own coach and I respect him as a coach. It’s hard for me to say ‘come over here Ronda’. Not just for her, but for all kinds of fighters that want to spend time with us at Kings MMA. They are more than welcome. No problem at all. I respect her camp, but if she one day wants to spend some day inside Kings MMA, she’s more than welcome, with all respect.”
On the other hand there are fighters like Michael Bisping who believe Rousey should stay at Glendale Fighting Club under Edmond Tarverdyan.
