Wanderlei Silva may have needed crutches to make his way around this weekend's 2010 UFC Fan Expo Boston, but that doesn't mean he's not already thinking about his next trip to the cage. "The Axe Murderer" on Friday told fans at a Fan Expo Q&A session that he was eyeing a return to action as soon as February. Silva said he's currently targeting a February return date, and he believes Chris Leben, who has openly lobbied to fight the Brazilian at the culmination of a season of "The Ultimate Fighter," would provide a suitable return opponent.

This should be fight of the night for sure, if it takes place.



Maybe fighters should fight every month-month and a half, so they are loose and able to perform as Leben did. Fighting every 4-6 months gives a lot of guys ring rust.

Hell. Yes. I cannot wait for this fight! Their styles are mirrors of each other. Should be a bangfest for the record books. How ironic would it be if Leben beat Wandy and got a title shot with Anderson?!

This fight is going to be so awesome....but I really think Wandy has passed his prime now and will not be surprised to see Leben KOing him in round 1.

Leben vs Wanderlei Silva could be one of the best fights of all time. They guys at UFC need to make it happen. I have thought about wanting to see this fight many a time.
