MMA FIX – Wanderlei Silva

Rich Franklin vs Wanderlei Silva at UFC 99

RawVegas speaks with Wanderlei Silva at his home gym, Xtreme Couture, amidst the controversy surrounding the UFC and Randy Couture.  This is an old school clip from back in the day when Randy ‘The Natural’ Couture and the UFC were going thru a rocky part of their relationship. And Wanderlei – he had the perspective. He knew that everyone would come back around eventually and work things out.

That’s why Wanderlei Silva is one of the most beloved fighters in all of MMA – he’s human. That’s a bizarre comment on a fighter who was known as the ‘Ax Murderer’ when he fought in Pride FC in Japan, but its true. Wanderlei is a wise fighter. He’s been in all the battles and he’s seen what really happens between people.

And yes, he’s a legend – so he’s on our “gotta getta foto with him” list.
