Wanderlei Silva & Rafael Alejarra

It looks like Wanderlei Silva’s days of snorkel training are over.

One of the best known partnerships between MMA fighter and physical conditioning coach has come to an end. After a little under four years of working together, Wanderlei Silva and Rafael Alejarra opted to head their separate ways.

No official announcement has been made as to who will take Alejarra’s place in Wanderlei Silva’s physical conditioning preparations, nor what the next step the Brazilian trainer will be.

No reason was given for the split, but obviously one or both felt it was time to move on. Wand will continue to train with longtime Chute Boxe coach, Rafael Cordeiro, at his gym in Las Vegas.
