By Guilherme Cruz
Responsible for the trainings of Quinton "Rampage"
Are you going to be coach of Quinton’s team?
Yes, I will be the coach of Jiu-Jitsu of the tenth season of the Rampage’s team. I was also coach of the season 7, with Rampage as well.
When does the new season start?
We started recording on June 1st, and happens for six weeks.
What did you find most interesting in your first participation?
It is different you have cameras and microphones all the time on top of you, and also the challenge of training a group of fighters you've never seen for fights in a short time. There’s also the drama that happens in the house and everything. Mainly the popularity of the show in the streets, a lot of people who you don’t realize will come and talk about the show, and this shows the popularity of the MMA.
Where are you giving lessons?
I’m giving lessons in
Who do you teach, beyond Quinton Jackson?
Cheick Kongo, Tito Ortiz, (Michael) Bisping, Hector Ramirez, Jerry May, Mike Dolce, Luck Zack and some 30 more professionals who are part of our new project, which is the Team Rampage Company Paulista MMA, where we train professionals and amateurs who are beginning in MMA. We have several places that are affiliated with us, and more than 15 coachs involved in the project.
After Lyoto’s victory over Rashad, don’t you think that this confrontation (Rashad x Rampage) lose the interest?
The show is very popular, and this has a special attraction that I can’t say, but it leaked on the Internet. A fighter who is very popular here is in the show as a participant. Other than that, the fans know the rivalry between Rashad and Rampage, then I'm sure of the success of the season.
