Next up for Wanderlei Silva is an encounter with Cung Le at UFC 139, a great opportunity for the warrior to shine. The upcoming November 19 battle won’t be easy, but that’s the way Silva likes it. It’s safe to say Wand is one of the greatest fighters in MMA history, and today he shared his celebrations of a special date with his fans over Twitter.
“Today marks 15 years since my first MMA fight, in 1996. I’m so happy to have chosen this profession, because now I have so many friends,” said the Pride FC icon.
GRACIEMAG.com will mark the occasion with a video of one of Wand’s greatest fights to date, against Rampage in 2004.
