Rafael Cordeiro is one of the best coaches in the MMA. He has coached big name MMA stars like Shogun Rua, Lyoto Machida, Fabricio Werdum and Rafael Dos Anjos. At present, he does not coach Ronda Rousey but he has just extended an indirect invitation to her. Ronda Rousey lost her last match to Holly Holm so the great Cordeiro thinks he can be of assistance to her.
The only problem is that Rousey has a coach already so Rafael Cordeiro does not want to appear disrespectful to Rousey’s present coach. This is why the invitation is presented as polite request. It is therefore up to Ronda Rousey to accept or decline this invitation. Already, opinions are divided as to whether Ronda Rousey should take up the offer or not. Some people are of the view that she should stay with her present coach while other people want her to try out the great Rafael Cordeiro.
Rafael Cordeiro Spoke to: MMAFighting
“For sure, if Ronda one day wants to come and spend time with us over here, no problem. If the fighter comes here with a good mind, an open mind to learn, no problem.”
“It’s hard for me to say something about Ronda Rousey because she has her own coach and I respect him as a coach. It’s hard for me to say ‘come over here Ronda’. Not just for her, but for all kinds of fighters that want to spend time with us at Kings MMA. They are more than welcome. No problem at all. I respect her camp, but if she one day wants to spend some day inside Kings MMA, she’s more than welcome, with all respect.”
