This controversy won't hurt him...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Fabricio Werdum (18-5-1 MMA, 6-2 UFC) said that he doesn't think Wanderlei Silva's problems with the Nevada State Athletic Commission will hurt his career. Here are highlights:
On Silva's legacy: "Silva has done great things for the sport, to move the sport forward. If he wants to retire, he's done well for himself. He's made good money for his kids and his future. But if wants to come back, I think he always gives a good show. But he could hang up the gloves right now and he would be well loved."
On if the trouble with the NSAC will hurt Silva's reputation: "I think his reputation is going to stay intact. He's done a lot for the sport, and throughout his career, he's moved the sport forward and he will always be remembered as a great champion."
