Wesley Correira

Wesley "Cabbage" Correira (born November 11, 1978) is an American mixed martial arts fighter. He trains with BJ Penn in Hilo, Hawaii.


He is well known for his strong "chin" (ability to sustain blows to the head without being knocked out), which was displayed in his fight with Tim Sylvia at UFC 39 and again with Andrei Arlovski at UFC 47. Correira lost the former fight by towel throw at 3:17 left of round 2 and the latter fight by TKO at 1:12 left of round 2.

Despite the losses, Correira was not knocked down at all in the first fight and was knocked down only at the end of the second fight, after sustaining constant punishment for almost two entire rounds. This fight led UFC play by play announcer Mike Goldberg to say "This man is not human." In fact, during 7 minutes the Sylvia fight lasted, Correira absorbed the highest number of power strikes ever recorded in one fight in UFC history. Correira has been quoted as saying his head is full of "concrete and stuff".

Correira holds notable wins over Jason Lambert, Eric "Butterbean" Esch, Joe Riggs, Tank Abbott, Justin Eilers, and Travis Wiuff.

In his last fight, on 26th of January, 2008, Correira TKO'd Jacob Faagai at 2:17 of the first round. As of March, 2007 Correira is 2-5 in his last seven fights. His next fight was set to be against Lion's Den fighter Buddy Roberts (6-1) on February 13, for a WarGods/Ken Shamrock Productions co-promoted event, Valentine's Day Massacre. Correira backed out of the fight at the last minute due to payment and management disputes. As a result the CSAC has suspended his fighting license.

Recently, Correira defeated Eric Esch by knockout due to a head kick in the second round of the K-1 full contact kickboxing heavyweight grand prix.
