When UFC came to Brazil for the first time, in 1998, Wanderlei Silva debuted on the event, but was defeated by Vitor Belfort. After that fight, Wanderlei reached the top of the world on Pride, but never got his rematch.

With Vitor’s loss to Anderson Silva, on UFC 126, “The Axe Murderer” proposed the challenge, on a phone talk with TATAME. “And now, where are you running to?”, asked Wanderlei. “I’d give him the number one (place in line to fight me) easily, I’m challenging him … I want him”.

Wand needs to take care of Stann first. That should be priority # 1 on his list.

My thoughts exactly.

What's with Wanderlei not wanting to fight Stann? I know he said he doesn't want to fight such a fan favorite, but that's such a crappy excuse in my book.

That fight would be instant fireworks and likely fight of the night. I just don't understand.

I don't think the rematch would end that differently. Belfort's quick boxing style is the kryptonite to someone like Wanderlei, who just charges forward and loops his punches. I love both guys, but I'd hate to see this fight happen at the moment. This is the type of rematch that needs to happen when both fighters are heading towards retirement, like a good-bye fight.

Guys hes going to destroy Stann, and then get a fight with Belfort more than likely.

The only person Wanderlei has "destroyed" since returning to the UFC was Keith Jardine. He has had some good three round wars, but no destructions as of late. In fact, I think the destruction of his chin by Rampage came more recently.

Wanderlei is a BAMF for sure, but he is not in his prime. He is in the twilight of his career.

I wouldn't mind seeing this fight. Someone is going to catch something in the jaw and get dropped. Belfort included. I personally think that it could be very entertaining for the fans and, MIGHT I ADD, the UFC is returning to Brazil and this is the sort of fight that could help make it one of the greatest cards of all time.

13 years later, Vitor and Wandy square off once again for their loving fans in Brazil. I don't know about you, but I get behind stuff like that.

Belfort should move up to 205 for a one match deal and hand Tito a rematch beating.
