Appearing on Cris Cyborg’s YouTube channel, Wanderlei discussed the recent challenge from Vitor Belfort and his chance to give Brazilian fans a rematch they have waited over 20 years for.
Los Angeles, California. May 8th, 2020 —– Wanderlei Silva says he hasn’t put behind the loss to Belfort, during an interview with Cris Cyborg and Eric Faro. Silva said he will knockout Belfort, “I am certain I can knock him out and that fans will love it.” Silva said.
Silva also added that he wants to fight Belfort bare-knuckle, even though Belfort doesn’t want it. He stated that he will face Belfort at any request in order to make the match happen — no problem with him. “I just hope he won’t break his hand again,” Silva said. While adding that Belfort’s nickname was “diva” back in the day.
