Wanderlei Silva Refuses To Walk Away From MMA After Poor Performance Against Leben

“A lot of guys say, ‘Oh you should retire’ but I can’t retire now, not after that fight. I’m coming back to fight, for sure, and I hope I give a good show for my fans. I will talk to [Dana White] soon but for sure this is not the last fight. After my career, I can’t have one last fight like that. I want to be able to announce when I am going to retire and then have a big party for my fans!”

    I say wanderlai vs bisping ll

  4. joe says:

    vanderlei is already a legend in the eyes of his fans. he should walk away now with dignity, this goes for matt hughes as well

  5. thegracieway69 says:

    Wandi aint done. Losing streaks are just a little less common than winning streaks. Dont forget he broke Lebens nose and had him in serious trouble. Just got to be careful with hurt opponents cause they put there heart into those haymakers. ps. Jens Pulver aint done either.

  6. Xaninho says:

    Such a nice guy outside the octagon….That’s a true warrior. Not a bitch like Cheat Sonnen.

  7. pk9grrr says:

    well can you atleast make it a bit harder for your oponent not to hit you next time then wandy

  8. Mike Diaz says:

    Wandy just leaned into those vicious uppercuts, one after the other. Take note Munoz! PENN NATION!!!!!!!!!

  9. tony says:

    men his mistake was clear…he was rocked….and instead of going backwards, sideways, trying to bodylock leben, try to go down to get leben in his guard, or anything that means avoid and get some time to get urself together, he just stand in the pocket, even trying to go forward….that was his mistake….but that is also the reason cause has so many fans n poeple love him….not for being KO, but becasue of his heart…..but sometimes our heart and desires can play down on us…..

  10. Fortyb4five says:

    Hang em up Wand…before you end up like Chuck.

  11. Steven says:

    Wanderlie is the best period, he should have used more head movement, more use of skills than violently running out, Leben did get wobbled but has sledgehammers for fist, he should incorporate more technique and muay thai skills. Rampage was known as a wrestler, now he’s a very skilled boxer
