Wanderlei Silva entered UFC on FUEL TV from Japan, with his future not known. Even after he left with a second round TKO over Brian Stann his future continues to be questioned. Silva seems confident to returning at least one more time.
“There was a hush, but it showed that I have wood to burn,” said Silva to TATAME. “The performance was good, both technically and in relation to physical fitness. I showed gas boy.”
Heading into the main event, Silva was 3-5. It was a far cry from his days in PRIDE where his ferociousness landed him the title, “The Axe Murderer.” It was Silva’s first fight in Japan since 2006.
Silva would like to return for the UFC when they go to Brazil later this year or upon their return to Japan.
