Fuel TV has already begun the slow build to UFC on Fuel TV 8, which will see the promotion return to Saitama Super Arena in Japan. Anchoring the bill is a middleweight tilt between Wanderlei Silva and Brian Stann. In the spotlight is former PRIDE Middleweight Champion “The Ax Murderer”, who will be making a homecoming of sort after years away Japan.
In one of the earliest fights from Wanderlei Silva’s PRIDE Fighting career, he took on kickboxer Bob Schrijber. To this day, Schrijber stands as the only submission victory of ‘The Axe Murderer’s’ career.
