Future UFC Hall of Famer (or not), Wanderlei "The Axe Murderer" Silva, will step inside the Octagon once again, this time facing Brian Stann at UFC on Fuel TV 8. Wandeco last seen losing a close decision to Rich Franklin, but the thirty-six year old's spirit remains strong, with sights on getting back on track in the UFC Middleweight division.

The fight will take place at the legendary Saitama Super Arena on March 3rd.

    Should be a well-matched, competitive fight.

    Sorry, but I just can't see him beating Stann after seeing that picture in the Meme contest.

    Yeah, that was sad, man. And it's a tough image to erase from your mind, too and Lord knows I'm trying.

    ''OUT COLD AND STRETCHED'' I don't know who is going to win but that's what I expect to hear Rogan scream at the end of this fight.

    It saddens me to say it but it happens to virtually all MMA fighters. Wanderlei is not the same man we saw in Pride. We saw that toughness and ferocity without the discipline and dedication in Leben but we may never see anything like that Wanderlei again

    I don't think there's any ''may never'' about it we won't see him like that again. However it's not like he can't compete against decent UFC MW, the problem for Wanderli is the brutal knock outs he's suffered will most likely effect in the worst possible way 10 years from now if not sooner.

    it looks like wanderlei will get overconfident, he is training with guys that are not even close to ufc level fighters. he wont get ready for stann like that.

    This will probably be the last time we see Wand War it out in the Octagon. One of my favorite fighters of all time, just past his prime.
