Wanderlei Silva Plans To Test Brian Stann’s Chin At UFC On Fuel TV 8

Wanderlei Silva will receive a hero’s welcome when he returns to Japan this March to face Brian Stann at UFC on Fuel TV 8.

Silva (34-12-1) became a legend competing in Pride before moving to the UFC. Now, “The Axe Murderer” plans to excite the Japanese fans when he faces Stann.

“Japan has a different atmosphere, a different energy,” Silva said. “I’ll be tasting that energy again on March 3. I can only guarantee one thing to my opponent and to all of you who will be watching: you will see a Wanderlei full of disposition. I will be testing Brian Stann’s chin. I am feeling stronger, faster and more explosive.”

Silva was defeated by Rich Franklin earlier this year after going the distance with the ex-UFC champion. He has alternated wins and losses in each of his past five fights.
