For those newer UFC and MMA fans who may not be familiar with the good old days of Chute Boxe, I can assure you that it was probably the last place they wanted to go to train. In fact, I’m not even sure you can classify that slaughterhouse as “training” as it was basically a group of savages beating each other every day with little or no protection.
Front and center was former PRIDE FC wrecking ball Wanderlei Silva, who eventually made it to the UFC, though I’m sure “The Ax Murderer” would probably like to forget that chapter of his storied combat sports career considering what ugly that ended in 2014. Silva, who will turn 45 in July, went 0-2 for Bellator MMA from 2017-18.
These days, the brick-fist Brazilian is content to keep the Chute Boxe spirit alive in his garage, along with the fist assist from his son Thor, who I assume is now “The Hatchet Murderer,” but don’t quote me. about that (or whatever else it says since most of it is fabricated). If you can overlook the porn mustache, you’d like to see some of Wandy’s shadow in Lil ‘Thor, who recently won his Muay Thai debut in just 33 seconds.
In other useless news, Phil Baroni, the perennial potty boob, is celebrating infidelity on Twitter.
