Wanderlei Silva Says UFC Treats Him Like A “Slave,” Dana White Fires Back

Wanderlei Silva is at it again, bashing UFC on the internet via social media, this time claiming he is being “treated like a slave by the promotion.”

Silva posted the following on his official Facebook page on Saturday:

“You know that I’ve been chased, discriminated, treated like a slave by this promotion. They don’t want to release me from the contract, so I can’t work anymore, which is my right of not wanting to work for them anymore, and I can’t work anywhere else. I come here asking the UFC to release me from this slavery system. You work for them or don’t work anywhere else. Some good soul, please translate this and send to Dana. I know I will find the best lawyers to help me with that.”

At the UFC Fight Night 62 post-fight press conference on Saturday night in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, UFC President Dana White fired back, stating the following:

“Wanderlei Silva ran form a drug test. He ran from a drug test. If he’s a slave, he’s a slave of his own doing. He did this to himself. The UFC didn’t do anything to Wanderlei Silva. Actually, everything that’s happening to Wanderlei Silva, he brings to himself.”
