MMA legend Wanderlei Silva spoke recently with Diogo Souza for the Brazilian language Tribunapr.br and reported that on Wednesday he was recently struck by a car while bicycling in Curitiba. The driver of the vehicle didn't flee but instead assisted the fighter. He was treated for a broken foot and facial abrasians at the hospital and released.

"If I hadn't been wearing a helmet, I might have died," said Wand. “People have to be more careful in traffic. It's hard to ride a bike in Curitiba.”

“[The driver] was super nice, stopped and put me in his car. Other people have already appeared to help me. ... We have many more cyclists in the city and we don't have a suitable place to ride. Unfortunately, drivers don't respect it. I was very sad about this accident. I ask people to be more aware of traffic and not to use their cell phones, as this can cost someone's life."

This is the second time Silva has been struck by a vehicle while riding a bicycle in Curitiba. The first time, in 2016, the driver fled the scene.

"If I hadn't been wearing a helmet, I might have died,"

For some reason I imagined Wand riding a bike wearing only fight shorts and flip flops. The image of him wearing a bike helmet gives me a chuckle. Glad he's gonna be ok though.

Was he trying to feed it a carrot? 

I'm glad he's okay.
