Rumor: Wanderlei Silva-Fedor Emelianenko In August

Wanderlei Silva

As he likes to do, Wanderlei Silva has got the rumor mill churning after making a post recently on social media.

Silva, a free agent, put up a fight poster for Rizin with himself and Fedor Emelianenko. He event attached a date, leaving many to believe an announcement could be in the near future.

“The Axe Murderer” is set to appear at a Bellator Fan Fest this week in Houston.

Silva was released from his UFC contract earlier this year, while Emelianenko made a triumphant return over New Year’s with Rizin, a new promotion based out of Japan.
