Wanderlei moved to the US and is living in Florida. Shogun still lives in Brazil.

Don't let Dana speak for the two. Shogun and Wanderlei are good friends and I doubt we will see it unless Dana throws a truckoad of money at the both of them.

Technically, if they're on contract with the UFC Dana can make them fight. I'm sure he'll make it worth their while but if he wants it to happen then it would be hard to stop.

Dana doesn't like being told no

Isn't Wanderlei training with Team Extreme Couture now, or was that just a short term stint?

The UFC cančt force them to fight, they sign individual contracts for each fight.

How can you be forced to fight someone, you would just choose to do nothing during the fight and just chill it out.

By forced I don't picture it as them being whipped into the ring like gladiators. But Dana can make it difficult for them both to say no. Even if it may not be what they prefere to do.

I mean you can have someone on a 4 fight contract for example and tell them they wont get another fight unless its against the UFC's pick. If they still refuse you can keep them from signing in other places. I'm not saying its likly, but it is possible

He was between the time he signed with the UFC and moved to Florida. Apparently he and Randy have gotten to be friends. I wouldn't be surprised if a few weeks before the a fight Wanderlei will head of to Extreme Couture for more intense training.

Aaah. So it's a they have separate camps but have and probably will collaborate from time to time kind of thing. Is that correct?

If so that's cool.
