Wanderlei "The Axe Murderer" Silva

Wanderlei "The Axe Murderer" Silva

Appropriately known as the "Axe-Murderer" for his fighting style, this native of Curitiba, Brazil began his Muay Thai career at the age of 13 at the Chute Boxe Academy. Today, he is one of the world's greatest multi-dimensional strikers, tearing his opponents apart with brutal punches, knees and kicks. Silva is an awesome striker from the clinch and perhaps no one else can match his technique, strength, and ferocity. But most of his fights are won even before the bell! Silva is one of the most intimidating fighters in the history of the sport ... look for his pre-match stare downs!
