Wanderlei Silva Vs Chris Leben Finally Set For UFC 132

Rarely has a fight made more sense than Wanderlei Silva Vs Chris Leben, and the UFC have finally seen fit to make it happen.

Both fighters had been campaigning for the fight, with Silva in particular appearing to have his heart set on the encounter with the former TUF season 1 star who appears to share his love of the stand-up battle.

It wasn’t the fight that the UFC wanted though – Silva is believed to have turned down a fight with Brian Stann, and Dana White recently revealed that the Brazilian was stalling on a long awaited rematch with Vitor Belfort.

It seems Silva’s managed to get his way in the end though, and fireworks are virtually guaranteed when these two meet.

Ross launched MMA Insight (previously FightOfTheNight.com) in 2009 as a way to channel his passion for the sport of mixed martial arts. He's since penned countless news stories and live fight reports along with dozens of feature articles as the lead writer for the site, reaching millions of fans in the process.
