UFC Cuts Wanderlei Silva From Public Appearance In Brazil

May 29, 2014 9:07 pm by BJPENN.COM News

Former PRIDE FC Champion and MMA Legend Wanderlei Silva has had a sudden, and drastic fall from grace.

Yesterday we learned that Silva was removed from his fight against Chael Sonnen, for running from the NSAC’s surprise drug-testers.

It’s a pretty big problem to have going forward and the potential backlash is still being unraveled.

‘The Axe Murderer’ was scheduled to make an appearance tomorrow in Brazil for a UFC Fan Q&A. However, the UFC has removed him from that scheduled slot and in his place will be, ‘Shogun’ Rua.

The UFC’s TUF Brazil 3 finale takes place Saturday, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Wanderlei, who was a coach on the season would have been a welcomed guest.

Not anymore.
