Wanderlei Silva hurt and betrayed after former coach, Rafael Alejarra sues him

UFC and PRIDE superstar, Wanderlei Silva is hurt and betrayed over being sued by his former trainer, Rafael Alejarra over a sum of money he says he’s owed by the fighter after training him for a number of years.

Silva, speaking via R7.com, said:

“I feel I have been betrayed. He always had the dream to come to USA. He came and I lodged him in my house because he had no place to stay in. I always said good words about him to other athletes. What do I make of this? I was surprised of course.”

“I even don’t know whether I can comment the case publicly so I will explain the reason for the proceedings only later. The worst thing is the disappointment, the problem isn’t the money. Money isn’t all in life. I felt like I was stabbed on the back. He was my personal friend and confidant.”
