Wanderlei Silva could have bought so many Dave & Busters’ tokens with $10,000 dollars. After Silva chowed down on only the best Thanksgiving leftovers, he stepped back into the Ax Murder studios for his latest video monologue. Advertised by Bellator for an autograph signing in San Diego to promote Bellator 131, Silva pulled out of the appearance the week of for unspecified reasons.
According to Silva and his hypnotizing mustache, Bellator promised the former Pride legend $10,000 dollars for his two hour appearance at the promotional event. A few days before his scheduled appearance, Silva received a email from the UFC threatening legal action if he went forward with the Bellator autograph signing. The saga of Silva vs. the UFC continues two months after he announced his retirement from the sport.
No Silva selfies with fans, no winning stuffed animals out of the crane game for Silva, just amazing facial hair on the Brazilian’s face to go along with his UFC contract. The 38 year old Silva is still under the contract with the UFC during his retirement and is still banned from MMA competition by the Nevada Athletic Commission.
During his black and white Holiday monologue, Silva also touches on issues of fighter pay, talks Rampage Jackson vs. Bellator, and apologizes to Cain Velasquez for questioning if his injury was real or fake. When an Ax Murderer sporting a mustache speaks, the entire MMA world must hang on his every word and stare at the wonders of his rants.
