Wanderlei Silva expects to be offered a rematch with Vitor Belfort if the UFC signs the Brazilian middleweight.

Silva - a Brazilian middleweight himself - fought Belfort at UFC Ultimate Brazil back in 1998. Belfort stopped him in 44 seconds with a lightning fast series of punches that ran Silva backwards across the Octagon.

“That sequence of punches... I don’t know whether that was technique or anxiety. Many people told me he was dying of fear to face me so that must have been anxiety [that drove him]," he told Brazil's Sensei Sport TV.

as long as he keeps asking we keep getting exciting fights where we know someone is going night-night though, thats not too bad in my book. this is a match id love to see, neither guy will put you to sleep.

Prolly not the best idea by Wandy for get a rematch. I think Vitor would get the KO again.

Not a smart mach up if Wandy wins then the just brought Belfort in to loss his first fight. If Belfort wins then the just sent Wandy packing. Why have these to fight right off the bat let them get some wins against other guys that way you can keep them both around longer

I dont think Dana will send Wandy packing just yet if he loses. Wandy has been involved in 2 KOTN awards and 2 FOTN awards. He makes Dana plenty of money still and is better than 75% of the UFC's LHW and MW fighters.

If this fight happens im picking Wanderlei by TKO.

Horrible matchup for Wanderlei.This fight would be at 185,and it would be Wandy's first cut down to that weight,which is going to really zap him (195 damn near killed him).All Vitor really has to do is go in there and start throwing hands with Wandy.He'll catch him and put him down,just like last time.

The UFC really needs to throw Wandy a bone at this point in his career if they want to keep him around and get a few more fights out of him.They can't keep throwing him in there with Top Ten talent-his body just can't take it anymore,and while he can still be competitve,that's not good enough against today's guys.They need to put him in there with somebody like Nate Quarry or Ricardo Almeida-a tough guy with a decent reputation,but a guy that Wandy is going to beat up nonetheless.

Keep throwing Wandy in there against Franklin,Belfort,Rampage,ect.,and you're just going to drive him straight into retirement.

WB.
