Wanderlei Silva expects to face Chris Leben during April in Toronto, ON

UFC and PRIDE star, Wanderlei Silva reveals that he expects to face fellow middleweight heavy hitter, Chris Leben when the promotion visits Toronto, Ontario, Canada, for the first time in April, a fight that would certainly be making the main card slot.

Silva, speaking via Fighters Only Magazine, said:

“I think I want to fight in April in Canada, I want to fight in Toronto. I think against Chris Leben. I want to fight with him next. I think he is interesting, he is my size, he is aggressive, he fights to the front (comes forward). I think we are going to make an interesting fight.”

When asked about his recovery from a serious knee injury sustained during the month of June, “The Axe Murderer” said:

“This time one [operation] but I had one on the other knee before, but now I feel good, I start my recovery and I feel really good right now. I tore my ACL, it was a really bad knee injury, but now I feel good, its ok.”
