Brian Stann Vs. Wanderlei Silva To Headline UFC On Fuel TV 8

The UFC’s return to Japan has a main event, as middleweights Brian Stann and Wanderlei Silva will collide.

The bout was made official by the promotion late Wednesday evening for UFC on Fuel TV 8. The card takes place March 3 from Saitama, Japan and the Saitama Super Arena.

Silva (34-12-1) is coming off a loss to Rich Franklin, but has made it known he wants to continue fighting. Getting a bout in Japan was on his wish list, as “The Axe Murderer” made his calling while coming up in the Pride promotion in the country.

Stann (12-5) has won just one of his previous three bouts inside the Octagon, falling to Michael Bisping and Chael Sonnen.
