Wanderlei Silva on TUF Brazil: I want to show the good side of Martial ArtsPosted on December 15, 2011, 12:54 PM by Anton Gurevich
"The expectations are great. The main idea is to show how is the life and the trainings of a fighter, make them focus and don’t get disturbed by the cameras or anything else, stay focused on the training. All athletes there I believe have a certain experience, so they don’t let it get to them.
I wanna show the good side of the martial arts, show the positive aspects of practicing martial arts and make it popular to people who has never watched MMA in their lives, and maybe help people who do many things wrong, like doing crack and other drugs. Sometimes it happens because the guy doesn’t have anything to do, his friend starts doing it and he goes and does it. I guess we gotta bring these guys from the bad side and show them some things that are good, that’s my mission." - TATAME.com

Veteran of 7 fights inside the UFC Octagon, Silva will look to prove his worth as a coach against the long-time rival Vitor "The Phenom" Belfort. The pair are expected to meet for a fight sometime during 2012, in what would be a rematch from the famous UFC: Brazil bout that took place back in 1998.
