Is it me or does Wanderlei Silva seem like the "Jim Jones" controlling these two kids?
Wanderlei seems envious that the world of MMA seems to care for just one Silva, Anderson, and he seems to be rearing his flock to inherit his jealousy over Anderson.
Wanderlei is now a loser (last 6: 5 losses, 1 win) and lives vicariously through his puppets' successes, his Koolaid sipping disciples, Maia and Shogun.
What he can't do he has his puppets go out and claim they can do on his behalf, particularly the obsession
with beating Silva on both Shogun and Maia's part.
Not a big fan of Marquardt but WAR Marquardt! Can't stand anything affiliated with Wanderlei (who my girl says looks like a rapist or a closet wife-beater, and she's Brazilian).
The dude sounds like a genuine OCD nut that would be in and out of jail if he wasnt legally allowed to assault people he didnčt like. He seems too emotionally invested, unlike a Fedor, St. Pierre, Machida or Silva. He seems geniunely socio to me, it does not just come of as an act.
