Wanderlei Silva has spoken up again. The former fighter had been sort of quiet for a while after his controversial retirement and drug testing problems with the Nevada Athletic Commission and the UFC. However, all of that changed starting yesterday. All because of UFC 189.
What we've learned about Conor McGregor
Bloody Elbow's striking specialist Connor Ruebusch takes a look at Conor McGregor's flawed but impressive performance against Chad Mendes.
First, Silva tweeted a couple of comments on the card's main event, which featured Conor McGregor knocking out Chad Mendes to become the interim featherweight champion in a fashion that made some believe the fight could have been fixed, so Wanderlei wrote quite the statement about fake fights and the WWE.
Fake fights !! We will gonna be wwe, this is finish the line , I am so sad!— Wanderlei Silva (@wandfc) July 13, 2015
Afterwards, he asked his followers in his native Portuguese if they thought the fight was indeed fixed in their opinion.
A luta foi comprada? O q vcs acham? Se foi, aí sim chegamos ao fim da linha!— Wanderlei Silva (@wandfc) July 13, 2015
"Was the fight fixed? What do you guys think? If it was, then we have really reached the end of the line", said Silva.
But the icing on the cake really came today, when Wanderlei uploaded another one of his videos where he harshly bashed the UFC, Dana White and the MMA media as well, and praised Jose Aldo for standing up for what he believes in. He also provided English-language subtitles as the entire rant was in Portuguese. Among the highlights, he called Dana White a "liar" regarding Aldo's injury and also criticized the media over their handling of the story.
