Wanderlei Silva reveals retirement plans
Las Vegas, 28th April 2009: Brazilian UFC legend Wanderlei Silva comments on his thoughts about retirement in an exclusive 6-page interview in Issue 3 of Fighters Only.
Wanderlei is a mixed martial arts legend and went undefeated in Japan for four and a half years before eventually joining the UFC. He fights former UFC middleweight Champ Rich Franklin at UFC 99 in June next.
“I want to fight for another five, maybe seven years? I don’t know. I need to respect my body. My body now is good, I am feeling good and training good. In the next year I will make a decision…”
Commenting on why he continues to fight, Wanderlei says:
“I don’t fight for money, because I have money to live for all my life, but I fight because I love it – because I love it, it stays in my heart.”
The full 6 page feature can only be read in issue 3 of the Fighters Only available in the US from Barnes and Noble, Borders, 7-Eleven, Walden Books, Hastings, Books-A-Million and many more. For more information visit:
