Default Wanderlei Silva vs. Brian Stann at LHW (UFC on Fuel 8)

Quote:
After officially announcing their return just over a week ago, the UFC has revealed seven fights including the main event of the UFC on Fuel TV 8 broadcast. A middleweight battle between Wanderlei Silva vs. Brian Stann headlines a stacked card which also features a heavyweight battle between Mark Hunt and Stefan Struve, a welterweight clash between Dong Hyun Kim and Siyar Bahadurzada as well as an exciting lightweight clash between Japanese native Takanori Gomi and TUF 1 winner Diego Sanchez.

“After an amazing event last February, we’re excited to bring the UFC back to Japan for the second year in a row,” said UFC President Dana White. “Japan has such a big fan base that we knew we couldn’t stay away for too long. I can’t wait to get back to Japan in March!”

Silva has alternated between wins and losses for the better part of the last three years. In eight UFC fights, he has gone 3-5 and has been unable to garner any momentum between tough losses and injuries. A loss against Stann could signal the end of a legendary career that spanned nearly 17 years.

After a promising start at middleweight, going 3-0 in his first three fights since dropping from light-heavyweight, Brain Stann has since gone 1-2 in his last three fights with disappointing performances against Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping. He will be looking to get back in the win cloumn with an impressive win over the Pride Legend.

The two main event competitors were originally scheduled to meet at UFC 130 back in 2011 until Silva voiced his reluctance to face Stann due to his Hero status in the USA.

UFC on Fuel TV 8 takes place March 3rd at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

UFC on Fuel TV 8 Fight Card:

Wanderlei Silva vs. Brian Stann
Stefan Struve vs. Mark Hunt
Diego Sanchez vs. Takanori Gomi
Dong Hyun Kim vs. Siyar Bahadurzada

Riki Fukuda vs. Brad Tavares
Takeya Mizugaki vs. Bryan Caraway
Hyun Gyu Lim vs. Marcelo Guimaraes
Kyung Ho Kang vs. Alex Caceres
Kazuki Tokudome vs. Cristiano Marcello

Does Wanderlei still have it in him to defeat Stann, or is he going to sleep?

Easier for both of 'em to make but don't see the point in it being at 205 really. I guess as neither are getting anywhere as contenders at 185 and they're just going to bang it out they've decided not to make 'em cut. Meh.

Fun fight though. Stann by KO.

:(

Hate it when two of your favorites fight one another.

Wand needs to land his looping right.. He lands, he needs to go for the finish.

Stann needs to try and be aggressive and not let Wand move forward, exploit his size advantage and try to pull off something similar to Leben by finding an opening early. I think Stann is actually kinda predictable in his striking game.

Two warriors, should be a great fight.

RIP Wand. He didn't want this fight before, "I want to be the GOOD guy, not fight Captain America!"
