I'm starting to think that Chute Boxe guys who show up with a strong ground game are the one's who are going to have most success in the new more competitive MMA.
I mean Thiago started training in MMA 2 years ago after being a black belt in BJJ and look at him now.
Werdum showed up with the best ground game at 205+ and We will see how quickly he picks up Chute Boxe's attacking Muay Thai.
Some guys like Wanderlei, Ninja, and Shogun should branch out and become more techinical strikers like Anderson has.
BTW anyone who thinks Chute Boxe is going down the drain they still have Shogun, Ninja, Werdum, Thiago, Azeredo, Fabio Silva, Jean Silva, and a bunch of young prospects including Shogun, and Ninja's little brother.
