Wanderlei Talks Retirement & What An Easy Target Vitor Is

By Jamie McAllister
Wanderlei Silva in an interview with

Wanderlei comments on retirement.

“How can I say it? I am in a situation… people want to see a show. I thought that I would do my last fight in Japan but then Germany, Australia and other countries came in asking me to make the final fight in their country,”

“I am feeling really good. I have to repeat what I said before my latest fight: only my performance can tell me if I can continue or not. Nobody who knocks Belfort out [then goes and] retires!”

Wanderlei also comments on Belfort who he is coaching beside on TUF Brazil.

“Actually, the guy lives in his own world. Everyone has their own viewpoint of course, he has his and it is much different from mine. And it opens a big opportunity to fool him around,”

“He is comedy. He thinks of himself, ‘I am a good looking and admired guy and everybody flatters me’ … when guys realize [he thinks like this] they are like ‘Oh my God!’”

    War Wandy!

  2. EBM FTW says:

    I hope he KO’s Feetor(/watch?v=-jWSOyw9TZU) but I think that chance is very slim. Feetor will probably use his signature “punch-to-the-back-of-the-head” to retire Wandy

  3. danielrchargers says:

    Do battle Wanderlei… do battle!

  4. SMSD says:

    hes gonna use his super size cup to intimidate Vitor, lol

  5. Clay says:

    Vitor would beat him silly in their prime. Wanderlei’s probably got it this time tho

  6. Dan ganir says:

    War your momma!!!!!

  7. mike d says:

    You guys know vitor has beat him b4 right

    • marc says:

      are you new to mma? “dont fight, theres no point, that guy already beat you” yeah i bet thats what Chuck was thinking when he fought Randy in their second fight, you are a dumb ass

  8. ChaBoyBreezy says:

    Yeah vitor knocked you out with the quickness already wanderlei… Do you really want to get beat up that fast again?

  9. mj says:

    Wand is just talking trash, he can try to turn this into a pride style brawl but unlike Chris Leb or even rampage… Vitor doest throw wild punches. They are straight and faster then anyones in the UFC. As for power, as his latest victims if he hits hard or go watch what one straight left did to lindland. So wand can talk, but fact is he was better when he lost and Vitor is actually a better fighter now. Vitor via round 1 TKO(first exchange).

  10. Ollie says:

    Cung Le dropped Wanderlei in the opening round. Belfort’s striking is way ahead of Le’s. This could get ugly for Wanderlei.

    • Donnybrook says:

      I disagree… Vitor may have better hands but over-all Cung’s striking is better when you take into cosideration the kicks that are involved with striking… Cung Le possesses some of the best if not the best kicks in MMA.

      • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

        I agree with that. Cung is one of my favorite fighters. His kicks are exceptional but his punches are average unfortunately. If his punches were as good as his kicks he could be top 10 in UFC mw division. Pat Barry has some sick kicks too.

      • Magic says:

        all vitor needs is his punches because they’re going to feel like kicks when he’s beating the living shit out of wand.

  11. Ryan kelly says:

    I predict first round sleepage wanderlei snooooooorrrrrrrriiiiiinnng

  12. The natural says:

    Axe murderer was greatest but I c vitor takin this one

  13. Jerry says:

    There is like no reason to think Wandy can win this fight…Love the guy, but… hes getting knocked out

  14. Brend0magic says:

    Vitor will make him eat his words.
