Rafael Cordeiro: Wanderlei Silva’s return in the hands of the UFC doctor’s

Renowned Brazilian MMA coach, Rafael Cordeiro speaks on the return date for former PRIDE middleweight champion, Wanderlei Silva, explaining things are now in the hands of the UFC’s doctor. Wanderlei is likely to return to action over the spring months, with a fight already lined up against former WEC light heavyweight champion, Brian Stann.

Cordeiro, speaking via Tatame Magazine, said:

“There’s nothing set yet, Wanderlei is waiting for the confirmation from the UFC doctor, who will say a date for his return. He’s getting ready, excited, depending only of the doctor. He always comes in to give is best… Whoever fights Wanderlei next should train hard because he’s crazy, and likes to stand and bang.”
