"Nobody said it directly to Wanderlei, that he won't fight anymore. Wanderlei is in Brazil now, he'll return to the United States this week, and he's coming to train here. He wants to fight again. He trained his whole life and suffered many injuries as any other athlete, but they're all healed. He's with a good body, stronger than ever. He's Wanderlei, he'll never give up. That's the main thing about him. And there's no reasons for him to do that. He's reached what every athlete wants to. I'm not saying this as his coach, I'm saying this as a guy who watched him growing in the sport. He has the potential to become champion again, it's all about timing."

- Rafael Cordeiro

It's not just timing, its also about matchups. There's no easy path to the title. And that doesn't help wanderlei. He needs gimmies if he's ever gonna get close, and that's not happening

love watching him fight, but it seems with his aging career he too has developed what us lab coat wearing scientists like to call "Chuck Liddell Chin Syndrome" CLCS

I completely disagree, i'm a giant Wanderlei fan but i don't see him coming anywhere near a title, perhaps not even close to a title shot. I just don't want to see him become a frequent KO victim, like what's becoming of CroCop.

Unfortunately, at this point, I think Wandy would likely get KTFO by an empty cup that was flung at him while walking to the cage.

I think he could become a champion again; there are a lot of regional promotions out there.

I don't see him coming close to a title shot, but he still has potential for a couple more good fights. he had some of the best beat downs in Pride and thats how i want to remember him. its hard to watch someone that used to destroy get killed. i hope he hangs it up before that.

sure, he could walk right in and in 2 fights be kotc champ but I'm pretty sure that's not what his coach is talking about

I wouldn't mind seeing Silva matched up with Bisping 3 or 4 more times. Forget the title, just beat the hell out of Bisping over and over.
