Now, Mark Hunt takes aim at The Axe Murderer, Wanderlei Silva

mark-hunt-aim-axe-murderer-wanderlei-silva

Damn, Mark Hunt is on a roll. yesterday he had a field day with Fabricio Werdum and today, he brought Wanderlei Silva into the mix. He posted the message to The Axe Murderer on his Instagram and it was similar to what he said to Werdum yesterday.

There is no word on what prompted this most recent tongue-lashing aside from Wanderlei being friends with Werdum. regardless, Hunt gave Wand the business.

He must be referencing Werdum when he says,

“You have no job. Enjoy the Favelas, bitch.”

Wanderlei is headlining Bellator in two weeks, for his fourth fight against Rampage Jackson. So, Hunt’s ire seems a bit misdirected. That is unless there is some underlying beef that has been boiling between the two.

Whatever the case is, Mark Hunt is on a rampage right now!

EA UFC 3 adds 5 iconic fighters to their roster. 4/5 are or were in Bellator

iconic-fighters-roster-bellator

The UFC and EA have added 5 new characters to their EA UFC 3 video game. It seems like a move to slap the face of Bellator, but who really knows at this point? Tito Ortiz, Mirko Cro Cop, Wanderlei Silva, Kimbo Slice, and Matt Serra are the iconic fighters that have been added to the game and sans Matt Serra, none are connected to the UFC in any way, shape or form.

Tito Ortiz was signed to Bellator before he retired and then unretired to fight Chuck Liddell under the Golden Boy banner. Cro Cop is currently signed to Bellator and so is Wanderlei Silva. Kimbo Slice has passed away but was last employed by Bellator as well.

This is an odd move for the UFC as the aforementioned named have all been cut by or have verbally bashed the UFC. I get wanting to give fans what they want in a video game, but this move seems a little premeditated to me. It feels like when Jon Fitch was fired for not wanting to sign all of his likeness rights away to the UFC for fear of them being able to use them in the future because something like THIS could happen.

Again, this is an odd move but I guess making money off of the fighter names and appeasing fans is the driving force in it. Regardless, these fighters are now available to play in the new UFC video game.

That time Wanderlei Silva waxed a kid in sparring because of disrespect

wanderlei-silva-waxed-kid-sparring-disrespect

I remember this video because Wanderlei Silva absolutely waxed this kid. It was from another angle and it was the kid’s friend who was filming. I vividly remember the cameraman telling someone how this kid loves the contact and the fight, as Wanderlei was kicking his ass.

It may just look like Wanderlei put the wood to this kid for no reason, but THIS video started a little late. After a seminar, Wanderlei was doing light sparring with those in attendance. The kid threw a chest to high kick at Wanderlei with full force. Wand was taken by surprise and not happy. They touched gloves and began to spar. That is where this video begins.

Wand proceeds to grant this kid his wish of going hard and open hand slaps him in a 2-piece combo before taking him down. While in guard, the kid continues to heel kick Wand in the kidneys.

If you ask me, Wanderlei should have given this kid a much bigger receipt than he gave him for being disrespectful. If you play stupid games you win stupid prizes.

Great video of Wanderlei Silva training with Cael Sanderson years ago

Wanderlei Silva

I would have loved to be at King’s MMA for so many of these great sessions.

It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that Wanderlei Silva is my all-time favorite fighter. His run in Pride was nothing short of combat perfection and win, lose or draw, he’s going to give it his all each and every time. I was in Las Vegas for Pride 32 when Dan Henderson knocked him out, and to this day, I don’t forgive Hendo for his crimes.

In this great video, we see wrestling icon and gold medalist Cael Sanderson stop by King’s MMA and get a lesson in Jiu-Jitsu and striking from the fine folks there. Wanderlei Silva and he work out and the video is pretty glorious. I always believed that Cael could have made the transition to MMA and been very successful. He certainly had the major block needed for success, a strong wrestling game. Maybe he doesn’t like getting hit, we’ll never know.

He did certainly find a field to ply his trade. He is a VERY successful wrestling coach at Penn State, having won seven team national titles. Enjoy the video, below.

Who is the Ultimate Man? Wanderlei Silva, that’s who.

ultimate-man-wanderlei-silva

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you with the Ultimate Man, Wanderlei Silva. Our beloved Wanderlei Silva made the most of his time in Japan during RIZIN fight week. Aside from sitting ringside for the fights and filming Gabi Garcia’s tearful apology, Wand made his way onto a Japanese game show.

We all know how those Japanese game shows work. People getting hurt is apparently hilarious to the Japanese, so that is what most of these shows consist of. This one, however, is a show of strength to see who the strongest man is.

A throat slash and mean-mug later, we have Wandy pushing on a plastic wall.

Looking back at Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva’s TUF brawl

Wanderlei Silva

Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen don’t like each other much.

Tomorrow night these two will be main eventing Bellator NYC, but let’s take a look back at their fun little scrap from TUF Brazil. The two were arguing, and it seems Sonnen was trying to maintain a cool head and difuse the situation. Wanderlei Silva  was just in that place he goes where he can not be reasoned with.  Well, after some back and forth, Wanderlei said they should fight and started closing the distance.

Sonnen shoved him away saying, “I can’t let you get close”, and it was on. Silva missed a right hook and Chael took him down. Members of both teams poured in and joined in the fray. It’s just a fun little reminder to get you ready for tomorrow’s main event grudge match.
