Quote of the Day: Wanderlei Silva Feeling Confident About Weight Cut

New, comments


“I eat a lot to make 205, no?” he said. “It will not be difficult for me to drop weight. My normal [walk around] weight is about 205, and my opponents have around 240.

“So I am going to test now a drop to 185, but I hope to fight in both weight division. I am going to test before [making the drop] but I only need to lose 20lbs, it is not a lot of weight. I think I am going to feel very well.”

Wanderlei Silva talking to Fighter's Only about his UFC 99 bout with Rich Franklin at a catchweight of 195 and his eventual move down to the middleweight division.
