Wanderlei Silva is a Brazilian mixed martial artist, specializing in Muay Thai and having a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He is the former IVC Light Heavyweight Champion, the former PRIDE Middleweight Champion, and the PRIDE 2003 Middleweight Grand Prix Champion. Silva earned the nickname "The Axe Murderer" for his extremely aggressive fighting style; the majority of his fights have either ended in a knockout or referee stoppage due to his strikes. Throughout his career, Silva has trained with Chute Boxe Academy in Brazil, and, since moving to the United States in 2007, he has trained at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas. He currently trains in Brazil, with former Chute Boxe teammate Mauricio Rua, and in Las Vegas, at his newly opened Wand Fight Team Academy. On August 17, 2007, the UFC announced that they had signed Silva to compete in the organization.
