"If I'm going to leave something behind, if I'm going to leave a message, or a lifestyle, it's to never surrender in the face of adversity. You can never surrender yourself. Even in the fight, you always have to go a little further. A little more, a little more, a little more. In the "little more" you will last much longer than you thought you could. Believe in your dreams. And work hard for them."
Wanderlei Silva is back in action this Sat., Nov. 19, 2011, against Cung Le at UFC 139 in San Jose. And he recognizes that his career is quickly winding down to its inevitable close. He's already built a legacy that can never be taken away from him but he also wants to leave the message for fight fans everywhere to simply believe in your dreams and work hard. Anything is possible, Maniacs.
