Two of the UFC 185lb divisions heaviest hitters, Wanderlei Silva and Brian Stann are being lined up to fight in the coming months.
According to MMAFighting, Dana White says the fight is in the works though it’s not been finalized just yet.
The news is likely to be welcome by Stann who noted his interest in a fight with the PRIDE legend following his TKO victory over Chris Leben at UFC 125.
“I think I’d like to fight Wanderlei (Silva) next. He’s been a guy that I’ve watched for years before I ever put a glove on. He’s amazing. I want him,” Stann told reporters at the post-fight press conference.
Silva is currently on the mend after undergoing major knee surgery last year following a successful middleweight debut against Michael Bisping in February.
‘The Axe-Murderer’ had been eyeing a potential fight with Leben, but Stann is also likely to be an attractive proposition for him.
