He had volunteered ready.
When the stories of Mike Tyson's incredible transformation and possible comeback spread recently, as the former UFC-fight Wanderlei Silva his chance.
He is now gone and been 43 years, but here was an opportunity. To get back in blitzlysets cut and to make a hefty dime.
But it stays there just nothing. For the accident was with Wanderlei.
During a bike ride in his hometown of Curitiba, he was simply run down by a car.
He got really quite mercilessly from it. He broke a bone in the foot and got some cuts and bruises. But it could of course have ended much worse for the brazilian.
I was, perhaps death, had I not had my helmet on, he said to the brazilian media Tribuna.
- People will simply have to see themselves better in traffic. It is hard too to ride a bike in Curitiba, it comes knastørt.
And for that it should not be a lie, this is the second time that Wanderlei Silva is going wrong off on the two-wheelers. Four years ago the smoke he in the asphalt after a similar collision where the car driver, however, took the flight.

For september, it is two years since he last was in oktagonen. Whether it is the main reason, is not the editors familiar, but he was last month linked with a fight against Tyson.
It had to happen in the so-called bare knuckle fight – a good old-fashioned fight without gloves. Just fists.
In the end of may, said Wanderlei Silva on the option:
- The game has it all, especially now that everyone is caught up at home. It would be the perfect moment to plan a match like this, he said to MMA Fighting.
His interest hang maybe also along with that, the reports went on, to Just Knuckle Fighting Championship had offered Tyson the entire $ 20 million – equivalent to 132 million – for a match.
Silva would hardly score the same, but the little handouts for the pension, he could probably pull out of it.
how, and How it is now degenerating, both of Wanderlei Silva and Mike Tyson – is uncertain. But we have hardly seen and heard the last of any of them.
