MMAWeekly.com is reporting that Wanderlei Silva has been helping Forrest Griffin train for his upcoming fight with Rampage Jackson. Silva holds two wins over Rampage from their PRIDE days and is looking to help Forrest set up a huge upset victory over his former rival:
Wanderlei Silva – who also trains at Xtreme Couture and holds two crushing victories over Quinton Jackson while both were fighting for Pride – has been in Griffin’s ear and in his face for the Ultimate Fighter alum’s training camp for this bout. It’s something that Griffin readily confirms and has reaped tremendous confidence from.
He has acquired some fight advice from Wanderlei though. “The one thing he said was immediately grab the head and throw the knee instead of trying to set it up and make the perfect… bam! Grab and go, start throwing, don’t sit there and let him think about it.”
