PRIDE FC Grand Prix Champion, Wanderlei Silva, recently visited an orphanage in his hometown of Curitiba, Brazil. The champ spent time with the children, giving gifts and candy and also signing autographs. The manager of the orphanage called it the best Christmas for the children in the last ten years. Said Wanderlei, "It's good to help our brothers and sisters ... for me it reminds me how difficult my childhood was and to value all the wonderful things that I'm living today."
