Wanderlei Silva Talks Cutting Weight, Getting Faster


<p>Wanderlei Silva was a fixture at 205lbs in Pride for a very long time, making his name known world wide for his vicious beatdowns and now since moving to the UFC, Silva has dropped a weight class to 185lbs and according to the &quot;Axe Murderer&quot; its made him faster:</p><p>&quot;I feel so great. I feel fast. My timing is better. I think I&rsquo;m going to have a great performance in the division. The surgery I make because I broke my nose a lot of times before. I reconstruct my nose because before I don&rsquo;t sleep very well. Now, I sleep better and my recovery&rsquo;s better, no? I feel great. My cardio is better now and I&rsquo;m ready to fight (again). For my next fight, I trained a lot of wrestling, jiu-jitsu, and Muay Thai. I&rsquo;m going to try and use it now.&quot;</p><p>Props: <a href="http://www.sherdog.com">Sherdog.com</a></p>
