“We are professionals. Itâ€™s a great irresponsibility not to be careful on training, a great disrespect towards the fans. Iâ€™m really sad. Iâ€™m ready to knock you out, you have nowhere to run. This fight is happening. I guess you got scared of me. Nobody trains so hard that breaks his hand. We use the best equipments, gloves, bandages. If you were scared, you shouldnâ€™t have accepted it. If you really got it broken, itâ€™s amateurism and if you didnâ€™t, youâ€™re scared. In both scenarios, it was irresponsible of you towards the fans. Pardon the word, but Iâ€™m pissed with your amateurism. A main event on the biggest event of the world and the guy shows up like that.” [Tatame]
I’m guessing Wanderlei has fought through a few injuries in his long fighting career. But I doubt Vitor broke his hand and elected to have surgery to get out of a sluggfest with the Axe Murderer.
