Seemingly not a lot of in-ring experience on Werdum's team.
Would I be correct in assuming that MMA is still in its early stages in parts of Latin America (excluding Brazil obviously)?
Wanderlei is retarded, seriously! Go ahead Wanderlei, family, and trainers. Send him in there to get KTFO again. Fuck his health! Go ahead...
Fuck you to anyone who thinks that is a good idea.
I'll be rooting for Cains team seeing as my dad is from Mexico City hopefully some of these guys are good prospects we will see.
