Vitor Vianna sounds like a Handsome Boy Modeling School era Prince Paul. There I said it. With that out of the way, it would take a product of Wand Fight Team to show no fear in the face of the twirling Russian zombie wouldn’t it? While the world asks JDS or Cain the Bellator middleweights prepare in earnest for a tournament finals showdown in Ontario, Canada, and we couldn’t be more pumped. Will Shlemenko fulfill his destiny and earn the right to face Hector Lombard again? According to Vianna, he thinks he has every tool to snap the five fight winning streak of the spinning backfist throwing Shlemenko. This is what he told Sherdog:
“I can knock out anyone, and Alexander Shlemenko is no exception,” “All I need to do is punch him on the button, and he’s going down.”
“I know Shlemenko is very capable on the ground, but I definitely feel like I can submit him. Whatever it takes; I’m here to be a champion,”
We shall certainly see, but I don’t think anything can stop Shlemenko that isn’t in an elemental form.
