Revealing behind the scenes Wanderlei video


“I'm having a taste of everything a fighter can pass through in his career. I'm being put to the test. It's that story; the true warrior is the one who doesn't give up. You have to go through hardship to know if you will give up or not. I'm still here."

“I'm in one piece. I will come back as soon as the event invites me. I hope to fight soon. To try to feel the taste of victory. The Silva family never gives up. I will show you all that I never give up. I will be ready for the next.

“I left the event and I came home feeling so angry and bitter. Then I realized if I had won, I would be thanking God. So I went down on my knees to thank God for giving me the strength to fight again. It had been emotional to be back in there again.

“The fans and everything… I just wanted to give a good performance. But to fight again after 16 months [off] was already a victory… I want to show everybody that I still can. I will go back to training. That is my life.”

How about give him no one. Just cause hes a fan favorite and a PAST legend does not mean he should be gifted pay day after pay day after losing how many in a row and getting his block knocked off.I understand hes a nice guy and everyone gets jerk happy at his pride roid monkey days. But there are people more deserving and hungrier that should be in there. It takes credibility away from the sport giving dude chance after chance when i better fighter would have been let way before.The same people wanting another fight for him, are the same people that complained about kimbo ruining the UFCS credibility.

I will watch the guy everytime he fights. I would prefer if he retires because I dont want to see him get hurt. BUT if he insists on fighting, I will be cheerign for him no matter what!

people are worried about his health because they care.there is a difference between being a pussy and taking care of your health. running yourself into the ground is not courage it's suicide.
