Wanderlei Silva Returns vs. Brian Stann at UFC 130 on May 28th in Las Vegas, NV

Former PRIDE middleweight champion, Wanderlei Silva will make his long awaited return to the Octagon against fellow middleweight Brain Stann. Although the bout had been rumored for weeks, it was made official for UFC 130 during the promotion’s most recent episode of ‘Ultimate Insider.’

“The Axe Murderer” had several fighters call him out during his time off, but one of the sport’s most well liked fighters is ready to end what will be a 15-month layoff, the longest of his professional career, he has actually been on the shelf since his unanimous decision win over Michael Bisping at UFC 110 last February.

Former WEC light heavyweight champion Stann, was impressive in his last outing at UFC 125 as he ran through an extremely durable Chris Leben on New Year’s Day. UFC 130 is scheduled for May 28th and will go down inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
