Video: Wanderlei Silva teams up with 'Stitch' Duran, promises MMA revolution

You say you want a revolution?

Exiled combat sports legend Wanderlei Silva is promising a revolution in mixed martial arts (MMA), not long after he went to war with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) over his lifetime ban from cage fighting.

See how that mess unfolded here.

But it appears "The Axe Murderer" is enlisting some friends to help sharpen his blade, as the Brazilian recently released a video with Jacob Duran, the longtime MMA cutman who was ousted from UFC after complaining about the promotion's sponsorship deal with Reebok.

There seems to be a lot of that going around these days.

Silva, however, may find himself fighting the good fight in court as the promotion has filed suit against the ex-PRIDE slugger, probably for all the comments he made about fixed fights. But judging by this video, if and when Silva does go, he won't go quietly.
