Wanderlei Silva struck by car, may need surgery

Longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran and recent Bellator signee Wanderlei Silva was riding his bicycle (cue the Ms. Gulch soundtrack) when some shitty driver — who was probably texting and not paying attention like I always do — plowed into him and injured his shoulder.

From Silva’s official Facebook account:

Please note that the Wand had an accident where he was hit by a car when he was returning by bicycle to his home after a workout, he ended up injuring his shoulder and undergoes surgery today. We ask your prayers for our champion. ASCOM

Silva’s wife told MMA Junkie that surgery may not be a foregone conclusion and “The Axe Murderer” will wait to see the results of today’s medical tests.

This is the second time this month an MMA fighter was struck by a vehicle and Silva is fortunate to be alive. Bellator’s Jordan Parsons died early last week as a result of injuries incurred during a hit-and-run (more on that here).

The status on Wandy’s participation in the upcoming Rizin event is unknown at this time.
