Video: Wanderlei Silva Talks About His Surgery and Developing His Fight Team

Wanderlei Silva, a former PRIDE champion and generally terrifying human being, has been pretty quiet about his surgery up until now.  In this video he talks about what work he had done, a new tattoo, and developing his gym and fight team.  It seems that Wanderlei is looking to establish his future role in MMA for days long after his own fight career has finished.

I know a lot of people are saying that Silva looks like a different person, but really, did the Silva who fought Rampage for the third time look (facially) at all similar to the one who fought in the early PRIDE days?  Silva's face had taken a lot of punishment and was really scarred and swollen.  I think he looks better.
