It looks like a guy called the Axe Murderer, best known for his violence inside of the MMA cage and ring, will be focusing his efforts not only on Chael Sonnen and coaching TUF: Brazil 3, but on a political career.
Funny enough, Chael ran for the Oregon Senate a few years ago. Who knew it would come to this?
Wanderlei had this to say about running for the Brazilian Social Democracy Party, according to MMAFighting:
“I realized that I have many projects to be done, many interesting things, and if everything goes right, I will do this,” Silva said in a release. “I’ll go to the TUF house, knock Sonnen out and then start my campaign. I just opened a free, public MMA gym in Paraiba, so why can’t Curitiba or Sao Paulo have one? No money? Someone needs to do this. I’m tired of asking, so I’m going to do that on my own hands at the congress.”
“No more corrupt politicians stealing from us,” he continued. “This generation needs to go to jail, retire or die. It’s the time for the good people, but we need to do something. It needs to be good for everybody. And if you think Romario is controversial, wait until I get there.”
