It doesn’t matter what people are saying. It doesn’t matter what’s happening in your life. Nothing can take you away from your focus. What should your focus be? What you want for your life is your focus. And if you want something with all of your heart, you will get it. – Wanderlei Silva
Wanderlei Silva will make what could be his last stand this Saturday against the debuting Cung Le in the co-main event of UFC 139: Shogun vs. Henderson.Once one of the most feared men in any weight class, the former Pride champion has turned in mixed results lately, going 2-6 over his last eight with four knockout losses. Many have written The Axe Murderer off following his most recent appearance, a first-round knockout to Chris Leben, and a subsequent defeat to Le this weekend would almost guarantee the end of his UFC career.
Though he’s been widely counted out, Silva continues to fight, without need of money or any further glory to gain. In the video below, entitled “Dreamers,” Silva gives insight into why he continues to put his heart and body on the line in pursuit of victory.
