Bellator NYC: Wanderlei Silva Comments on Loss to Chael Sonnen


By FCF Staff

Following Wanderlei Silva’s unanimous decision loss to Chael Sonnen at Bellator NYC, the legendary fighter has released a statement regarding his defeat.

Silva dropped Sonnen at one point with a right hook, but the latter dominated the fight with his wrestling and top game. Afterwards, the Brazilian star posted the comments below (translation via MMA Fighting):

“(I) fought a good fight, gave my best, and appreciate everyone’s support. I have to train more takedown defense, I know. The best moment of the fight was mine, he just kept grabbing me, but it’s ok… on to the next one!

“I’m happy to be back and feel the taste of entering the ring, and even better to feel that you are with me! I’ll train more jiu-jitsu and wrestling and come back as soon as possible! On to the next one! Listening our national anthem was emotional for me. Love you, Brazil.”
