Real Pilates is no joke. A very long list of the worlds top athletes do Pilates on a regular basis. Doing the real stuff on the equipment can drastically improve flexibility, and more importantly helps to prevent injuries. If the phenom wants to stay healthy and Reduce his risk of joint, and back injuries than why not do Pilates?

Maybe strong dance moves is what's required to beat Anderson.  Laying on him for 4.75 rounds didn't work.  Grappling him didn't work.  Boxing him didn't work.  Being Rich Franklin didn't work.  Running at him balls-to-the-wall damn sure didn't work. Dancing is the key.  Vitor FTW!

Couple the pilates and dance lessons with a nice colonic before the fight and he's ready to go.
