Wanderlei Silva’s coach says he does not want to fight anymore

on

Wanderlei Silva was banned by the NSAC back in May because he evaded a drug test in connection with a planned fight against Chael Sonnen at UFC 175 in 2014.

Despite his efforts to cancel the lifetime ban, Silva isn’t planning a return to mixed martial arts, according to Silva’s longtime MMA coach Rafael Cordeiro.

“I think he doesn’t wanna fight anymore,” Cordeiro told Ariel Helwani on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. “I think he wants to stay out for a while, just do seminars all over the world. I think his career is… he doesn’t wanna fight anymore.

“It’s just my opinion. I don’t know the future. But, to be honest with you, when I look Wanderlei now, he wants to spread the word about martial arts. I think that’s what he’s looking for now.”
