Wanderlei Silva, father Holando Pinheiro da Silva, died in a car accident this afternoon. The accident occurred in the Castro area, where the fighter's father lived. The body was taken to the Forensic Institute of Ponta Grossa, in the Campos Gerais region.

The driver of the other vehicle involved in the head-on collision also passed away.

According to relatives, Wanderlei Silva is in Las Vegas, and was told of the accident by phone. The fighter comes to ParanĂ¡ tomorrow.

R.I.P Papa Silva. You raised not only a wonderful son, father and human being, but a hero and an inspiration to many including myself. My thoughts and condolences are with the family.

Also, my condolences to the family of the other driver killed in the accident. Very sad and unfortunate.

Very unfortunate. Most automobile accidents are wholly preventable, yet they are perpetually occuring all over the world.

RIP Wandy's Dad!!

Car accidents are very common in Brazil as the roads are extremely dangerous and there is little mutual respect between drives on the road.

Hope Wandy can overcome this tragedy and come back in the octagon with a vengeance!

WAR Wandy!!!
