Check out the video of Draculino training for his Strikeforce Fight on August 21st in Brazil. Draculino has augmented his training with Frankie Edgar at Ricardo Almeida's academy. The two have trained well together according to Drac, "He showed me a lot of really cool techniques that I think will be really useful for my fight. I also had a great experience training with Frankie Edgar. He is an incredible athlete and he showed me a lot of things that will translate perfectly over to my fight. In addition to some great techniques we passed back and forth to each other, we also had live sparring for 3 rounds that was really awesome. Frankie and Ricardo are both great guys and I’m blessed to have the opportunity to train with talented guys like that."
