Wanderlei Silva done messed up. The MMA legend, who has resorted to calling out the UFC every chance he gets on social media is now looking at a legal battle with the promotion.
Yes, the UFC is going after Silva for his comments, specifically regarding the statement he made about them fixing fights.
In a recent statment to MMAFighting, the UFC released this statement on the matter.
Zuffa, LLC, dba the Ultimate Fighting Championship, filed suit against Wanderlei Silva in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas last evening based on the false and defamatory statements published by Mr. Silva last week.
