Wanderlei Silva released a video saying he is done with MMA.
The former Pride FC champion and one of the most popular fighters of all times released a video this Friday stating his reasons for the retirement.
Lately involved in a series of controversies regarding doping control, Wand is being investigated by the Nevada Athletic Comission after evading a surprise drug test before his scheduled fight against Chael Sonnen.
For that, Silva was scratched from the card and replaced by Vitor Belfort, but the fight ended cancelled after Sonnen failed a drug test himself.
In the video, Wand also slams the UFC (without naming it) for what he sees as the event’s mistreatment of fighters.
Watch the video and tell us what you think.
Wanderlei retires with a 35-12 record in an career that started in 1996, in bare-knuckle fights in Brazil.
