Next week, former WEC fighter Will Ribeiro will return to Rio de Janeiro’s Andaraí Hospital, where he his greatest wish will come true: to have cranioplasty to fit a prosthetic in his skull.
In a battle to recover from a debilitating motorcycle accident, Will is returning slowly but surely, within the possible, to activity. He has been working as a side referee at several MMA and muay thai events, as well dispelling preconceived notions regarding his abilities, by teaching boxing and muay thai classes, despite his being wheel chair-ridden.
There are many figures from the fight world standing behind Will in solidarity. Recently, Rodrigo Minotauro, Rogério Minotouro and Anderson Silva taught a seminar to collect funds for the fighter’s treatment. André Pederneiras, through the Shooto South America promotion, has helped, too. Now another MMA star is on the campaign, Wanderlei Silva.
