Wanderlei Silva released by the UFC

on

The UFC released MMA legend and longtime UFC veteran “The Axe Murderer” Wanderlei Silva from his contract on Thursday. The UFC has not issued a statement as of this writing.

Silva was given a lifetime ban by the NSAC back in May of 2015 because he evaded a drug test in connection with a planned fight against Chael Sonnen at UFC 175 in 2014.

It was announced at Tuesday’s NSAC hearing that his hearing would be rescheduled for February.
