Wanderlei Silva

Last Tuesday it was published that the legendary Brazilian fighter Wanderlei Silva is to promote the new Bellator 131 event in San Diego with the help of his former UFC colleagues Gracie, Couture and Shamrock. However, something happened that Silva did not like much.

Today Bellator posted on its Twitter account that Silva will not attend the promotional party for 131 event because in this way he would breach the contract that still binds him with UFC.

Wanderlei Silva is still bound with the UFC contract despite the lifelong ban imposed by the Nevada Athletic Commission for avoiding the doping tests on purpose.

An anonymous source close to the UFC said to MMAjunkie that Bellator decided not to use Silva for promotional purposes when they found out that he is still under the UFC contract.
