Wanderlei Silva Hit By Car During Bicycle Ride
MMA Junkie – MMA veteran Wanderlei Silva will find out today if a recent shoulder injury will require surgery.
Silva’s wife, Tea, today told MMAjunkie the 39-year-old PRIDE and UFC vet will undergo tests this afternoon and meet with his physician to discuss his shoulder, which was injured in a recent accident.
On Wednesday, a statement was posted to Silva’s official Facebook page. It states Silva was hit by a car during a post-workout bicycle ride. However, though the post mentions he was slated for surgery today, “The Axe Murderer’s” wife said that decision won’t be made until he consults with his physician.
Bike vs. Car was never a fight Wanderlei Silva was going to win (although, I am sure he went down swinging) but if a shoulder injury is the worst he suffered than he faired pretty well. The driver of the car must feel terrible even though his family probably thinks he is a hero. I can imagine their happiness when he told them he took out the axe murderer.
