yeah Silva was never a champ in the UFC and he never really accomplished anything in the UFC for that matter.
He was never a ufc champ...they both fought for the vacant title.
Good grief prideFAN...just let it go FFS.
I didn't follow the sport around that time, but I don't see how Wandy was ever UFC champ in any division either. He fought for the vacant title against Tito since Frank retired as I recall. I don't know how that makes him champ.
Tito Beat Silva For The "vacant" Title... Meaning Silva Was "not" The Champ.... Shitty Fight Though Wand Should Have One...
It doesn't matter what some article that made a factual error says. The truth is that Silva never beat anyone for th title. Whatever article you read is incorrect.
Yeah it just says that Ortiz beat Silva for the title. Which was vacant at the time as someone said on the other thread and this thread. I like your determination prideFan, but you are wrong this time buddy.
Just found the artical that is being mentioned, however it does not say Silva was the champion, it just says Ortiz won the title in a fight against Silva, like I said at the time of the fight the was no champion.
How was he the champion in the UFC?
He fought 3 times in the UFC & lost 2.
Loss to Belfort.
Loss to Tito.
Win over Tony Peterra.
Are you saying that the Peterra fight was for the UFC title?!?!?!?
Actually there are a lot of people who claim to be world champions in the UFC. Ian Freeman has claimed to be an ex-UFC champion, although to my knowledge he's never won the title. So maybe it's cos Silva won a fight in the UFC he's regarded as a champion.
I don't know, but it's BS. Wanderlie Silva has never been a world title holder in the UFC. Period.
Pridefan, I did what your message said, and it brought up like 2 articals on MMA and two on Boxing, neither mentioned Silva at all.
