As Anderson Silva-Chael Sonnen fight was relocated to Las Vegas, the MMA backstage brings many expectations about the repercussions for the bout itself.
To comment on this issue, Jiu-Jitsu coach of Spider, Ramon Lemos, affirmed that the Brazilian will not have any problems with that, and guarantees he will remain as the middleweight champ.
“They guys talked to me about that, asked me what changed, but from the where I’m standing as a coach, having Anderson fighting in Las Vegas, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Curitiba, Alaska, Zimbabwe, Tibet (laughs)… It doesn’t matter. He’s ready. The place doesn’t matter to us. We’re going for war and, God bless us, to raise the Brazilian banner”.
After Sonnen’s attacks on the media, criticizing the Brazilian and poking him in all ways possible, Anderson invited the American to come and fight him in Brazil.
Ramon dodged from it, but guaranteed there’s nothing to be changed on training, even if it takes place on the United States.
“Nothing has changed in his mind. I believe he would really like to fight in his home country, but I believe it doesn’t change one bit”.
