Wanderlei Silva inspired by 'The Spider' and Spider Man

source: tatame.com

Do you feel relieved after this win?

I feel like I’ve cleaned my soul. I really needed a good performance, a regular one. I’m a victorious athlete. I’ve always had a victorious career, had some losses, which is something that happens, but my crew is awesome. They guys don’t leave me, they got my back. You guys are the reason I’m here today. Thanks’ God I’m no longer doing it for the money. I do it for the pleasure. You are the reason I got motivations, you are my gas. Sometimes I’m not that excited and I access my Twitter account and you are always there, you’re great. This win is ours.

You trained with Anderson on this final phase. Did he give you any tips about the kicks?

Anderson is phenomenal. He came here, helped me find his timing, because now he’s a superstar and for him to find some time to help me is hard (laughs). He went there and trained with me. Thank you. I’m sure that, like I cheer on your bouts, I know you also cheered for me. Let’s represent well and let’s see if you use this strength. It’s like Spider Man says: the more strength you have, the more responsibilities you have. So let’s see if we help the younger athletes to have the same opportunities we had to show our work to the world.

I was very impressed with the way Wanderlei fought. He kept his guard high and didn't rush in and try to force anything that wasn't there. It was almost unbelievable to see him finish with a high kick, a stiff jab, and a flurry of knees from the clinch.

  I always thought of Wanderlei as a mma fighter version of Kraven, personally.

  Tobey Maguire = Added more success to Wand's game than Steven Seagal.

Nice Spidey quote lol even Peter Parker would be proud. I didn't know Anderson trained with him for this fight. Wanderlei was surprisingly technical with his standup for once, instead of just rushing in there like he's always done.
