My condolences to Wanderlei and his entire family

EDIT: Just found this video, posted on the 22nd - Wanderlei had just been visiting his old man - this is so sad to watch

Poor guy. It's never good to lose a loved one, my thoughts are with the Silva family.

its easy to forget some times that our favorite fighters are real life human beings because they are so "larger than life" typically. God Bless the Silva family in their time of need. Very sad.

Hope the kid pulls through, and that he has someone to look after him after the man who was presumably his father died.
