This Tuesday, Wanderlei Silva celebrates his 37th birthday. The Brazilian, whose career spans almost 17 years, is known for his youthful, playful spirit.
Last Friday, the UFC athlete didn’t miss the opportunity and made another one of his jokes to fans on his Instagram page:
“July 3 I’m turning 37!!! Young guns better hurry to catch up, ’cause daddy’s kicking ass and taking names. My wife even nicknamed me Neymar… so I asked, ‘Why, honey, is it the hair?’ She answered, ‘No, baby, it’s because you can still wow the crowd.’”
Wanderlei’s next octagon appointment is not yet scheduled, but he’s coming off a knockout win over Brian Stann last March in Japan. There’s no denying the mad dog can still wow an MMA crowd.
Happy birthday, Wanderlei!
