UFC Middleweight Champ Anderson Silva

If anyone would know about the Chute Boxe Academy, it would be Anderson Silva. “The Spider” was a member of the Brazilian camp, but supposedly had a falling out with the head of Chute Boxe Rudimar Fedrigo. 

“I never had anything against them and against anyone on the team. By the time I left I, they also were going out, but for some reason they [Mauricio & Murilo Rua] stayed,” Silva told Tatame.

To think the Ruas could’ve left when Silva did back in 2003, who knows where Chute Boxe or the Ruas could’ve been at this point.

Silva’s comment is something not widely known.

“They are wrong and are paying for the mistake… I think it´s difficult for Chute Boxe to be back to the top,” Silva went on to say.

I’m sure we’ll be hearing more in the weeks to come.
