Wanderlei Silva’s Son Wins Muay Thai Debut In 33 Seconds

“Like father, like son” doesn’t always ring true, but in the case of six-time Pride champion Wanderlei Silva and his son, Thor, it’s looking like it may be the case.

Thor Silva entered his first amateur Muay Thai competition and won it over the weekend, needing just 33 seconds to claim victory. Wanderlei shared the video on his Instagram and revealed that he himself had only needed 30 seconds to finish his first fight and expressing his pride in his son.
