Tatame.com is reporting that Anderson Silva’s Muay Thai trainer, Frenchman Daniel Woirin, has left the fighter’s camp. Woirin issued this statement to Tatame:
“I thank Anderson for all the time we spent working together. He’s a champion, a born striker, but we won’t continue working together in this partnership due to lack of tune in some moments. I decided to let the way open for him to work his Muay Thai with anyone he decides. The last fight we did was the one against Griffin… I think I ended my work with him in a great way”
The two have been working together to sharpen “The Spider’s” Muay Thai throughout his last four fights. That means that while training under Woirin, Silva fought James Irvin, Patrick Cote, Thales Leites, and Forrest Griffin. It’s hard to speak on the impact the trainer had on Silva’s game because of the mixed results produced in those fights. Two lackluster performances against Cote and Leites were sandwiched by spectacular first round knockouts of Irvin and Grffin.
We will see how Woirin’s departure affects Silva on April 10 when he takes on Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort at UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi.
