Wanderlei Silva’s been battling injuries to his body since a win over Brian Stann earlier this year, scrapping a potential meeting with Chael Sonnen – at least for now.
The former PRIDE champion, though, plans to return to action as soon as possible.
“We’ll have a very good surprise soon,” said Silva, in an interview with Fighters Only Magazine, “it won’t take long until the UFC reveals it.
“I only can say the fans will like it a lot.”
Silva didn’t provide any further detail, but UFC president Dana White has stated “The Axe Murderer” should be back training full-time in early 2014.
