Rafael Cordeiro Says Ronda Rousey Is Welcome At Kings MMA

Earlier in the week, UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael Dos Anjos addressed a topic that had been on the minds of a lot of hardcore MMA fans: The prospects of Ronda Rousey joining the team that he’s a star member of, Kings MMA. Being that Rousey is a pressure fighter and expert grapplers, Kings specializes in turning grapplers into great strikers and pressure fighters, it feels like the perfect match if Rousey makes a move. Plus, she wouldn’t have to leave the Los Angeles area.

Meanwhile, the founder of/head coach at Kings MMA, Rafael Cordeiro, was on The MMA Hour and addressed the topic. “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,” he told Ariel Helwani. “It’s hard for me to say something about Ronda because she has her own coach and I respect him as a coach. It’s hard for me to say ‘come here Ronda’. Not just for her, but for all kind of fighters that want to spend time with us at Kings MMA, are more than welcome, no problem at all. Everybody that come here with open mind, for sure we’re gonna help.”

As for Cris Cyborg, who used to train with Cordeiro? That association is a non-issue. “Cris trained with me a long time ago, as soon as I moved to the United States eight years ago, she came with me and worked with me for maybe six months, and then she went back to Brazil. But I don’t train her anymore.”

The next big fight for Kings MMA is on December 19th, when Dos Anjos defends the UFC Lightweight Championship against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. Kings’ other UFC Champion, heavyweight Fabricio Werdum, has been linked to a rematch with Cain Velasquez in early 2016, but it hasn’t been officially announced as of yet.
