Quote:

With reinforcement on the trainings of Muay Thai, Dida is focused to the fight in K-1. "Who is giving a great strength here at the trainings is Cosmo Alexandre, especially for Dida. I don’t even need to say anything, right? High level", said Britto, advancing. "Cosmo will fight next week in Italy, under Muay Thai rules". Brother of Dida, Mauricio Véio is also training at Canada. "Veio is doing a great job here too, helping in everything. We’re exchanging experiences and the technical level is wonderful. Besides all of us, four athletes here will fight in two weeks at events in Canada", said Britto. "Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu are 100% together here", celebrates.
Dida is training with him for the Buakaw fight I did a google search and have seen some videos but I'm curious at what level Cosmo is and if this is a good sign for Dida?

Cosmo is a solid Muay Thai guy, Brazilian champion I believe. Fought in Holland one time (that I have seen) went to a close decision against Sem Braan. Fought Shane Chapman to a draw which is pretty good. Good guy for Dida to work with for the fight against Buakaw if Cosmo works his kicks more in sparring.

He can get a little wild with his strikes but lets face it, most brazilians do.

I saw the fight with Sem. Am I crazy for thinking Cosmo might have won it? It looked really close to me.

Yeah I would of scored it for Cosmo.

He and Dida need to do a lot of clinch work since Buakaw will clinch and Cosmo being a bigger guy will help out.
