‘The Axe Murderer’ Wanderlei Silva only fought once this year, back in March, but displayed more in that one fight than most MMA veterans do in an entire year. Silva showed that brutality was still the name of the game all the while, having his chin and heart tested and maintaing his power and aggression later in the fight.
This fight was the absolute brawl with Brian Stann that ended in a second-round knockout for Silva.
Now, Silva seems to have a lit a new spark in his career as he apparently wants to make a title run in the middleweight division.
link-tacular

I love Wandy and have mad respect for him and always wish for the best with him, but I don't see it happening. His chin won't hold up to the punishment well enough and he is still obviously on the downward side on his career. It makes me sad to say it but I just don't see him getting anywhere close to contention anymore.

I agree 100%.

I love Wandy, but there's no UFC title in his future.

I'm extremely curious to see who the UFC actually matches up with Wanderlei.

Wandy...UFC Title...come on!!
I am a huge fan! But dude's record is asinine in the UFC to be asking for a title...who's next? Jason MacDonald?

Wand couldn't beat Franklin at 185, how's he going to beat other top contenders?


Stick to fighting Stand-up fighters.

Love Wandy but how many guys are going to go in there and trade bombs with him like Stann did (what an AWESOME fight BTW)??

I guess Wandy sees this as his last opportunity to make some noise coming off a win like that but it's not happening.

Wanderlei has a better chance of being a UFC champ then Chale.

I highly doubt that sir. Chale or Chael or you get,.his last 3 losses have come to the #1 and #2 P4P guys in the world.

I like Wanderlei but he's not fighting for a title ever again in the UFC. Chael on the other hand unless he t retires could quite possibly fight for the belt again. Not anytime soon but he could drop back down to MW, put together a 3 fight win streak and get another title shot.

Getting a title shot increases your odds dramatically over someone who will never get a shot again

I'd rather see Wandy vs Anderson instead of the undeserved rematch of Anderson and Weidman

You're right... Weidman doesn't deserve a rematch with the GOAT

The only thing Vand should "eye" is the description on his toe tag.....it reads DEATH BY CHAEL.
