Wanderlei Silva, a legend in my books!
Wanderlei Silva is one of the few fighters to ever defeat Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in the ring. His brutal all-out-take-no-prisoners fighting style is unique and extraordinary. His prime was when PrideFC was still alive. It was truly sensational to see him utterly dominate his opponents as they were struck with fear during the match. I would be terrified to step up to him for one. When I was at my gym training MMA, I would try to shape my style around his, and it often times worked. Especially for jiu-jitsu tournaments.
Hopefully we'll see more of him in the UFC. Considering they don't replace him as they are starting to trend with all fighter for some reason.. Here's to you Wandy!!
