Wanderlei Silva has responded to the request of the Crippler, Chris Leben. Apparently the feeling is mutual for the former Pride FC champion.
“I think I want to fight in April in Canada, I want to fight in Toronto. I think against Chris Leben. I want to fight with him next, said Wanderlia Silva,
I think he is interesting, he is my size, he is aggressive, he fights to the front. I think we are going to make an interesting fight.”
This time one [operation] but I had one on the other knee before, but now I feel good, I start my recovery and I feel really good right now. I tore my ACL, it was a really bad knee injury, but now I feel good, its ok.”
Unfortunately for Leben, he is currently dealing with more legal problems after being charged with a second DUI after crashing on a Honolulfreeway. He is due to appear in a Hawaii court in November and may have a problem with his fight against Brian Stann on Jan. 1st in Las Vegas, NV.
