Wanderlei Silva to run for Brazilian congress


Wanderlei Silva is a legendary mixed martial artists and one of the biggest stars to ever represent Brazilian. However he can only fight so long, and Silva is looking to make a big move for after his fighting career, politics:

"I realized that I have many projects to be done, many interesting things, and if everything goes right, I will do this," Silva said in a release. "I’ll go to the TUF house, knock Sonnen out and then start my campaign. I just opened a free, public MMA gym in Paraiba, so why can’t Curitiba or Sao Paulo have one? No money? Someone needs to do this. I’m tired of asking, so I’m going to do that on my own hands at the congress."

"No more corrupt politicians stealing from us," he continued. "This generation needs to go to jail, retire or die. It’s the time for the good people, but we need to do something. It needs to be good for everybody. And if you think Romario is controversial, wait until I get there."
