Wanderlei Silva wants to reunite infamous Chute Boxe Team

UFC middleweight contender and former PRIDE middleweight champion, Wanderlei Silva speaks of the desire to reunite the infamous Chute Boxe team from the days of old under a new name. “The Axe Murderer” addressed former team-mates, current UFC light heavyweight champion, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and his brother, Murilo “Ninja” Rua as well as throwing an invite out to current UFC middleweight champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva, who is currently on the sidelines recovering from surgery on a torn ACL.

Wanderlei, speaking to Fighters Only Magazine, said:

“Our intention now is to reunite the group. Shogun, come train with us… [Cordeiro is training] Mark Munoz, Renato Babalu, Kryzstoff Soszynski, Ryo Chonan… we have eight professionals. What we had back then (Chute Boxe days) we don’t have now, a variety of people to train with. But now professor Cordeiro is succeeding in putting it all together. Shogun come, and we will give you top training.”

“Its hard to even talk about Shogun, we will do anything we can to help Shogun. This kid became my idol in MMA. The guys is an idol now, the guy is amazing. Come back and bring your energy back for us! We need your energy here.”

“Our group is coming back. I spoke with [Andre] Dida and Veio in Toronto, they will also be helping. Our ideal to make the best team in the world is already happening. Plus with the addition of new people like Babalu, Werdum – the whole world will want to come and train with us.”

“Another person I would like to help is Anderson Silva. I can’t train right now [because of injury] but even if its just psychological, Anderson we want to help you in any way you need. Even if its just holding the stopwatch.”
