Former Ultimate Fighter finalist Vinny Magalhaes remains unsigned and waiting to secure a future in a new home. However, that hasn't kept Magalhaes from training, and training with certain fighters.
While a Brazilian, Magalhaes had no trouble training and working with Sonnen. The outspoken No. 1 contender has been very vocal against Brazilians, especially Silva. Magalhaes recently gave prediction for the fight to Tatame.com.
"It's only because I trained with him, but I believe he has a hard style for Anderson to defeat," Magalhaes said. "I'm a fan of Anderson as a fighter and I guess he has proven to be the best fighter in the world...but sometimes you're much better than a guy here and there, but the guy has one weapon which is so strong you can't have it with him and I guess that's the problem on this Chael-Anderson fight."
Magalhaes added that, "Chael's style is hard on Anderson and I believe it will go the same way as the first (fight) did. If he believes in his game, I believe he can submit Anderson this time. Now, if he doesn't submit him, (Sonnen's) gonna win via points."
