My greatest joy was without a doubt to be able to bring happiness to those of you who never gave up on believing in me. My true friends, now we have been redeemed. I spent the day reading and re-reading the messages from you on the internet. You have no idea how happy I am. I am certain any fighter would love to have fans like you. I went through three hard months, training for this fight, and it wasn’t just once or twice that the messages from you uplifted me and stimulated me to keep on training intensely. This fight was decisive. I was under a lot of pressure. I had to win by all means. But at these tough times I could see you guys were with me. To have the affection of you guys on my side is an honor, it is priceless. I was very moved and felt like crying after the win. Thank God I cry from happiness. At that moment I thought of all of you excited by this so long-awaited moment!! Now you can also talk to me on MySpace (myspace.com/wanderleisilva). Here I’ll be able to get to know you better. I haven’t the words to thank you enough for the strength you have given me. Let’s beat our chests and celebrate with much joy, because this victory is ours!! Thank you so much.”

Wand is a class act. Funny how someone so intimidating, and that vicious of fighter, can be so humble, and thankful for everything.

Gotta say I never doubted him in that fight...Jardine has a tendacy to get in brawls (Houston, Forrest) not that it's a bad thing just that it's Wand's sweet spot. However, I thought Jardine was surely going to try and draw out the fight by moving in and out and working leg kicks. Wand should definately stay at LHW...there are just so many good match ups for him there, can't wait for his next one!! WAR WAND!!!!!

As much as I have hated this guy in the past, I gotta say I have really come around. Silva works hard and has respect for everyone he fights and his fans. After his fight with Liddell I was really impressed with him.....dare I say....I'm almost a fan


Ok who am I kiddin, by knocking out Jardine he made me a fan.

Very impressive with his last fight. I think he should fight 1 more time maybe against Sokoudjou or Rashad Evans before a Match with Lyoto Machida. I just dont think UFC will give us the match with Lyoto and Silva off the rip. Lyoto has been on such a streak and I think it is safe to say he is next in line after Rampage/ Griffen as of right now. I could also see Machida / Liddell for a title shot. It is just so hard to pick right now because there are about 3-4 fighters that are a "cats whisker" away from a title shot. Props though to Silva I hope to see more of this from him in the Octagon !

I know i always felt dirty for rooting for the guy because there has always been such a rivalry between Liddell and Silva fans, but after he fought Liddell I was actually excited to see him fight Jardine and was rooting for him the whole way....oh well I guess old habits die hard...maybe I will give him a chance from now on.....until he rematches Liddell then I hope he gets dropped!! But he has definately earned my respect.

Wanderlei truly fights for the fans. Whenever he wins I feel like I'm sharing the victory with him because he's just so happy for the fans first and foremost. He really makes you feel like he's out there fighting for you.

How can someone not appreciate this guy? I know it's been said a couple times in this thread, but truly a class act... he seems like such a genuinley nice guy... I think half of what I like about him is that he is this nice soft spoken person and then when he gets into the cage/ring he can just flip the switch... He deserved this win and I hope he makes another great run, this time in the octagon....

War Wanderlei!!!

Source, or just speculation? I doubt the UFC would cut Wandy for another loss after the war he just put on with Chuck. My guess was if he lost they would either build him back up with lower tier fighters, or more likely he would probably move to 185. That's just my opinon though, not any inside info. As for Wandy's victory , it was the nights highlight for me. We had a mass rugby scrum -type - jumping- hug in the middle of the living room when the ref stopped it.
