Among the many MMA personalities that have, throughout the years, captured our imagination and made loyal followers of us all, Wanderlei Silva still remains a fan favorite even after frequently long absences from the Octagon.

A native of Curitiba, Brazil, the “Axe Murderer” entered the professional fighting scene at the age of 20 in the Brazilian Vale Tudo Fighting organization, knocking out his opponent via strikes. In subsequent years, Silva gained notoriety for his hard-nosed brawling style and the viciousness of his strikes, steadily climbing the fighting ranks from contender to IVC light heavyweight champion and dominant PRIDE Middleweight champion.
