It’s been many years in the making, but Wanderlei Silva has finally inked a contract with the UFC and is set for a December fight date. No opponent has been announced yet, although he expected to debut in December.
The signing took place on Friday afternoon at the Zuffa offices and no one is more excited than UFC President Dana White. White was quoted at UFC.com as saying, “As crazy as this sounds, this is the pinnacle of my seven year career in this company. I’m so excited to have this guy under contract. He grabbed my arm and looked me in the eyes like one of his pre-fight staredowns and he said ‘I’m gonna fight so good for you, you’re gonna see the best fights ever from Wanderlei Silva.’
