Brian Stann agreed to face Wanderlei Silva at 205 pounds in the main event of UFC on Fuel TV 8 in March from Japan.

The fight was announced late Wednesday night, and Stann confirmed the light heavyweight decision via Twitter.

Stann (12-5) was nearing a possible title shot at middleweight before falling to Michael Bisping earlier this year. He will lock horns with a legend in Japan in Silva (34-12), who is a former PRIDE champion.
