Wanderlei Silva Expected to Fight Brian Stann in UFC Return

Wanderlei SilvaBrian Stann will apparently get his wish to welcome Wanderlei Silva back to UFC action.

After stopping Chris Leben in the co-main event of UFC 125 on New Year’s Day, the rising middleweight Stann requested a fight with “The Axe Murderer” and UFC President Dana White has told MMA Fighting the matchup is expected for spring.

Silva (33-10-1) topped Michael Bisping in his 185-pound debut last February after dropping five of his last six but has been sidelined since after undergoing knee surgery, while Stann (10-3) stopped Leben for his fourth win in five bouts.

The UFC’s schedule includes UFC 129 on April 30 in Toronto, UFC 130 on May 28 in Las Vegas, and UFC 131 on June 11 in Vancouver.
