Many have been quick to bury Anderson Silva after he twice tested positive for steroids in relation to his UFC 183 headlining bout with Nick Diaz, but not his countryman Wanderlei Silva.
Silva recently issued the above video, throwing his full support behind the former UFC middleweight champion, chiding those who doubt him, saying that “no matter what happened, we can’t question (Anderson’s) talent.”
Wanderlei Silva retired from mixed martial arts competition last year after the Nevada Athletic Commission essentially banned him for life for evading an out-of-competition drug test. Wanderlei is currently challenging the commission’s decision via legal means.
